Played the game. It's fun. But there are a few problems I think-

1. The "Strike" system loses its relevance when you can just catch the ball, and again throw it aiming at the enemy. You don't even need to rebound the ball with your bat to invite the danger of getting a "Strike"

2. In some levels you can just throw the ball, and don't need to do anything. The ball will kill all enemies by itself. The enemy projectiles are a check for that, but that mechanics may need some more work

3. The colour of enemy projectiles should have been changed from maroon to a bright colour for more contrast w.r.t. the floor colour which is dark. It's a bit difficult to notice the projectiles. Also the  enemy projectiles should have been destroyed when it goes out of the level.

The art is very good, and music is fine, but the ball is too "wild". It's way more effective if you just release it and wait for it to kill all the enemies instead of getting misses with trying to hit the ball.

I spent a few minutes standing still, not realizing I could move. I few small tutorial blurbs would really tie things together! Otherwise, once I got the ball rolling, it was a fun, enjoyable game!

Ahah I spent like 5 mins in the first room trying to hit the ball multiple time not noticing that you can walk left. Fun  game!

Very original game, although I ended up spending most of my time spamming melee moves :p (that glove is great)

The glove is a bit OP by design; it's supposed to help players who need a hand

Thought I had to wack the ball outside the wrong, took me a while before I realised I could just walk outside. The mechanic works pretty good! Got an error sometimes when colliding with an enemy.

I really, really regret not fixing that collision bug haha. Glad you liked it!

The one baseball mechanic was cool.  Sometimes the game would crash but that's expected for a game made in 48 hours. I had fun!

Really cool entry! The baseball analogies were pretty fun :) It took a minute to get a feel for, but felt pretty nice to use after I got it. Most of the enemies were fairly passive... HOWEVER, the ones that can shoot red things are quite a challenge. It took me a few minutes to figure out I needed a bounce shot to kill the first one. I got to the 4-corner shooter room a few times, but I couldn't quite pass it :( Maybe I'll give it another go when I'm fresher (sleep deprived atm, haha)

Good Stuff!
