Aw, a PC Engine inspired game <3 Would like to see more of these.
Nice palette cycling fade. I'm curious on how it was achieved.

I'd love to make more of these ^^

That's actually surprisingly simple! I just had a posterisation filter applied to the game set to 8 RGB levels, that way I can fade the screen however I want and it will still look hardware-accurate!

i think the hitboxes need to be a bit smaller but overall a very good game

Hey! got a ball throwing game too! (that caught my attention) pleased to see it a different take entirely though. (except the red ball, obviously the ball is red)
Anyway, game is very pretty and works well, bit unfortunate there's only one level but it does the job. Got some good retro game vibes!

One ball, one girl, one stage, I'd say it kinda fit's the theme, and it looks good and plays good, so good job.

It's interesting, but it feels like there could be more done with the whole "one ball" idea. the GBA feel of it is nice but not much to say overall.

I scored 88! This is a great game. I like the artstlyle, sounds, and the gameplay - they all seem to work well together. The ball bounce is very satisfying. Nice job!

Very Cute. I like the little design touches like the ball being in front of the player, the box blocking the entryway, the out of the way treasure boxes. Very nice player teaching moments!
If you ever made more stages  I'd defiantly give them a shot.

Really nice game. Reminded me of Sega Genesis times.

This game absolutely screams Super Nintendo; the music, the art, the controls, it's all there. Sadly it doesn't do very much with the theme; the only real impact is that you need to go retrieve the ball after every throw.

who knew that chucking balls at other balls with eyes would be so satisfying.

This one is cool and pretty!

This has choice aesthetic. It's like one of those obscure hidden gem SNES titles. Absolutely fantastic, especially considering the time constraints.

The graphics look very nice, music is good too. This definitely looks like a retro game, especially with the way the screen fades. Gameplay is fun and simple too. Good job on this.

I really like the look of this game. That girl has some serious tossing skills though.
