I like the retro style. Had to figure out where the barriers could go at first though.

A short and sweet game, I loved the music and the retro theme. A cool entry!

Nice game: pretty straigthfoward, and a nice take on the theme! Really liked the retrowave aesthetic and the music as well.

I were immersed by this game. Good introduction screen, but it was too fast for me that explanation on the screen was 2 seconds and game began to play. So, I handled it after the second try :D I was happy that there weren't any bounces with random direction. I think you need to show players where is allowed to place walls and where is not. A little help from UI won't disturb the main feel of the game. Speeding up is also made good.

Cool game!

The speed go up fast haha

One thing I would change would be to put indicator as to where the border will be placed when hovering and prevent being able to put border in the dice which push it outside very fast.

There were some times in which the bouncing one was about to go offscreen, and the game let me create a barrier in the middle of the ball, launching it back into the screen. Looks like a bug, but believe me, it's an awesome one :)! Made me go from "No, no, no, no!" to "Wait, what? Oh, yes!!". 

Hahaha had a great time playing! Rated!

Starts a bit slow, but i like it when it picks ups speed.

I like the old school art ! The music also well chosen.

I had a little bit of hard time with the gameplay : sometimes I will put edges but it will not make the dice bounds. But it's not happening all the times so it's fair enough to me :P

It's also getting harder as the dice speed-up very quickly. I guess hard core gamers will like it ;) 

Good job !

Neat little game, spamming the barrier usually do the job. Could use more variety.

Good idea!!  I really liked it, sound is a bit too loud. Great job!!

If you don't place the barriers in just the right areas near the sides of the screen they'll not be placed in time and I came across a game breaking bug that included an JavaScript alert box to appear but apart from that I enjoyed this game. I really wanted to get the ball in the corners of the screen just to see what would happen. :)

As for the game breaking bug, it happened to me only once, could never replicate it in the Unity editor to try and fix it. ;c

Looks great, nice background sound effects and music

Good work! There seems to be a bug when I spam barriers though. A whole bunch will stay out but the bouncing one will glide right through

Yeah I found this glitch too late, but it's such an easy fix (I think, lol).
