Nice idea, the physics work nicely, center-mechanic is weel put together.

But to be honest I don't really see how it can be made much more interesting, I think it loose quite a bit of its novelty when the levels just get spikingly harder, from doing nothing to feeling like you can't do anything.

It's nonetheless impressive to have achieve that much in 4 hours, but I would have love to see a bit more, and not just difficulty-wise.

I participaed in 2 game jams in the same week end i didnt really had the chance to think about things 

But it's in the theme soo it works

In most cases it's pretty hard to estimate where the ball is going to be after the next bounce which makes the levels a bit too difficult in my opinion, but still it's a nice idea and great work for 4 hours.

4 hour dev time is insane with original assets, good job!
The game was pretty hard for me, maybe because the controls weren't super intuitive for me, so it could use some more introductory/easier levels so i could get acclimated to the game

Wow, impressive you made this in only 4 hours!

I like the simplicity of the control method. It makes me think it would fit well on mobile!

I also think the little control tutorial animation is a really neat addition,  well done! :) Very clear and simple what to do. 

Perhaps controlling the paddle was a bit finnicky. Sometimes I felt I was just clicking at random. Maybe you could freeze or slow down time when the player is placing the paddle?

The difficulty curve maybe is a little steep, I think it could do with some more medium difficulty levels before getting harder.

Overall great effort! Enjoy playing some jam games!
