Very nice experience. I was wondering if it wasn't chalenging enough, but then I spent a lot of time in the last level. Great job

Trying to make a dash for that one color you still need, and then carefully manouvering to get to the hole is surprisingly exciting and relaxing at the same time! I appreciate not putting a timer in there :)

Only caveat I have is that it can be difficult to see the depth of the playing board, especially when orbs are in the air. Maybe some vertical shadows could help?

Developer

I was very tempted to pop a timer in the game, but I'm glad the decision turned out for the better! In future updates I'll add more veritical shadows to help with the depths, thank you for the feedback!

Its nice! Relaxing, fun... I got confused when you guys called the black targets holes since they where not making holes in the surface lol.... But its a great game! GJ.

Developer(+1)

Sorry about the confision, I should've called them circles instead of holes, will definelty change that in future updates, thank you! Glad to see you enjoyed it!

Really fun, the concept is simple but quickly gets challenging, it felt like you were fighting against the stage itself to get the win. The calm music against the frustrating balls made me laugh too. Love it!

Developer

Glad to see you enjoyed the difficulty curved, I was concerned it wouldn't be challenging throughout the game, but I'm happy to see the level planning paid off! Thank you for the feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Great idea, nicely executed. I really liked how you took simple art, a straightforward concept and really ran with it. Really nice, quick calming game. 

Developer

Thank you, I'm glad to see you enjoyed the game! I really wanted to focus on the mechanics as I did this by myself (apart from the music), but I'm happy that the simplistic art style paid off too!

Nice game. I made it to the end. Good difficulty progression. Nice relaxing music.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback! It's nice to know players are able to get to the end and it's not a frustrating game overall.
