How does your game fit the theme?
The theme was "Out of Control", we interpreted this theme as there must be something in game, what can't be controlled by player. In this game you should hold the ball on the island as long as you can. You can't control the ball directly. In order to hold the ball, you should rotate the island by dragging your mouse horizontally.

Really fun game with a simple mechanic that could lead to very interesting level design. The presentation is very neat and is overall very enjoyable to play!

Fun concept and great execution. It's super well polished and plays great.

If you wanted to keep building, it would be nice to have power ups such as "double points" or a "5 second shield" to appear on the far ends to encourage risky behavior. Furthermore, it could be nice to see where the meteorites will impact before they come down from the top. Lastly, new levels with new locations plus a new challenge could be nice. For example, an ice area where the ball sides or a field where wind blows in a direction. This could be unlocked by getting a high enough score on the previous stage.

I think this could work really well as a mobile game with tilt controls.

Overall fun game! Good luck with your future game dev!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback and advice. We’ve actually been thinking about power ups, but we haven’t had time to implement it. I'm glad you liked our game!

The art is amazing! fun concept. Good job guys.

I would appreciate it if you'll have time to check out my game.

It's a nice little game and has a beautiful art style, but I think it could have a better control mapping. Well done :)

And actually it's art and gameplay reminds me of "yoku's island express".

And if you had time, I'd be thankful if you try my submission <3

Thank you for youur feedback. We will try to make the controls better, but during development it seemed to us that this kind of controls would suit us. Didn't know about "yoku's island express". I'm glad you liked our game.

This game looks gorgeous, and it definitely fits the theme with how chaotic it can get. It's certainly a juxtaposition with the calm ambiance. This is a very nice game.

Developer

Thank you very much for your feedback and for paying attention. I'm glad you liked our game.

The visuals are really good, I just kinda wished I could rotate the platform with the arrow keys or so instead of dragging my mouse.

Truly beautiful artwork and a neat concept! The controls take a bit of getting used to, but I guess that's the whole point! :)

Very polished game! controls are hard but i guess it was the point no? :)

overall great game!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback! Yes, but we didn’t try to make a very complicated controls for this game, yet here the ball is out of control, and we needed to do it more responsive and aggressive, so that the user can get used to and take advantage of this controls.

The game looks realy amazing! Great job. However in my opinion the gameplay is a bit too casual. But that may work for others

Developer

Thank you for your feedback!

Looks amazing, however controls are not intuitive and cause a lot of Frustration.

Submitted(+1)

I believe the controls are unintuitive intentionally to fit the "Out of Control" theme.

Developer (1 edit)

Not exactly, but the ball is out of control here, and the controls had to make the player get used to it and use it to their advantage.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback and I’m sorry that the game controls have been inconvenient to you.
