This game is truly life-changing, 10/10 would recommend

I feel this comment may be biased.

This was a fun concept and the only pinball game I saw this jam! The progressing through levels as you moved out of the top part of the map was a great addition, though there was a lot of space around the bumpers and the top corners that made it very easy to lose. There were times where I started a new round and the ball shot straight off the side when I hadn't even gotten a chance to hit it. Besides that, the concept is very cool!

Really like that the ball has expressions! I think a pinball game fits well with the theme, this is the only pinball game I've come across in the Jam. fun game. nice job!

After using Gamemaker for 12 years this is so nostalgic. This was so identifiably a GM game I checked the logo and was right. Everything about it is fun and chunky and feels good. Great game!

Really fun game! Great idea! Love the levels idea in a pin ball game where you go up a screen by getting a ball up through the gap at the top. Great execution! :D

Thank you so much, your feedback means a lot to me!

I love that the pinball starts to sleep when it is going slow! Overall, this is a solid pin ball game, with some moments when it gets out of hand. I think maybe you need to spend some time looking into the collision detection because I felt it was a bit off at some points. Overall, good job!

Developer

Thanks for playing! I thought the sleeping would be a fun thing to make going slow actually interesting. I'm guessing you're talking about the flipper collision? If so, I know exactly what you mean.

This is exactly how I feel every time I play pinball

It got a fun gameplay! The presentation could be improved though and you could add some twist to make the game fit the theme... 

Nice Job!

This is the only pinball game I've seen for this jam! It really takes me back to 2005, so nice job with that! The chaotic nature of the game and the randomness did get a bit frustrating at times, but definitely didn't stop the game from being fun. One thing I though was really cool was how levels were connected, and how you just hit the ball to a certain spot to advance, and then having it fall down means you go to the previous level.

Thanks for playing

most chaotic pinball game I've played! I had a fun playing this, enjoyed the chaos lol, good job!

A pinball game!! I haven't played one in ages, this is a really original take on the theme, I think this has to be the only pinball game of the jam actually. I liked the level progression mechanic! I think I'd liked to have more gravity, that'd add more  pressure to not going back in levels and could open the door to having some powerups for closing the previous lvl door or something. really nice! well done!

Submitted

fun little game! there's definitely a lot of room to clean up this idea, but i think you've got a nice, solid pinball game (i wish i saw more of them these days). i love how the pinballs fall asleep and drift around, pretty funny :) great job!

This was a neat concept and perhaps felt the most "out of control" of all the games I've played this jam. Having said that, there were definitely times when it was a little too chaotic to handle (I'm looking at you multi-ball!). Whilst there is also a clear case of 'developer art', I thought the artwork actually worked really well amongst the chaos and helped to clarify a lot of what was going on for me. You have a really fun idea here, and should definitely consider carrying on development after the jam. With some balance tweaks and polish you could have a really fun little mobile game :)

Great work, keep it up!

I am surprised this is the first pinball game I have played this Jam, although I did not think of it before this pinball pretty much epitomizes out of control gaming.   Had a few issues with the ball slowing floating in a straight line off the side of the screen and dying.   Other than that felt like a choatic pinball game :)   Multiple balls and switching "levels" could be handled a bit better it was a bit hard to tell but it felt like one ball transitioned and the other one just stayed where it was on the screen but switched screens,   might be better to just force a transition on the second one momentarily afterward.


Awesome job!

Really fun game, it's always easy to get hooked in by a pinball game. I love how chaotic it gets, cute take on the theme ♥~

Goodluck and congrats on finishing your game for the gamejam. Hope to see what more you'll do next year!

Thanks so much!

A fun little time waster! Definitely gets chaotic and certainly out of control. I did find the physics of the ball a bit weird (it gets slow a lot for some reason). Overall pretty good!

Submitted

Nice twist on the pinball game, really chaotic, fast and unpredictable. Totally out of control. Good job
