This game is so cool and original to me! Deserves better ratings!

thank you so much kepygames.

This is a cool concept! It's like this billiards and golf combo, with a clean aesthetic and super tough levels. The camera angle made it a bit rough to line up my shots now and then, but it wasn't serous enough that it made the game any less fun. Real nice work!

Developer(+1)

wow, someone got it, this idea came to my mind because of golf, thank you so much for playing

Very cool game! A bit hard but I managed to reach the end of the second level :')
Thanks for the game :)

Developer

that's great. thank you so much for playing

Submitted

Really unique game! I love the style and mechanics, nice job!

Developer

thank you so much, glad you liked

Submitted

A shoot to move but with a twist, it's a bit hard to aim with the camera angle and perspective, maybe add a guide that shows the angle of the bounce

Developer

yeah it was time consuming so we didn't add it, but we will add it later thanks for playing

The graphics are great! It took me a while to get use to controls, but then it was real fun :)

Developer

thank you so much for playing

Fun unique game! The art is great and the gameplay is quite decent. Although I found myself just sitting there at times waiting for the balls to bounce and reflect. Not entirely sure how anything here is specifically "out of control" as everything has to do with aiming the balls at certain angles and just hope for the balls to come back fast and at a right angle. Overall a solid entry to the jam!

Developer(+1)

usually you have movement controls in a tank shooter game, so you are out of movement controls that's the point, thank you so much for playing

Submitted

cool music and art! i had some trouble with the mechanic at first but eventually figured it out- feel like if the first level was smaller and zoomed in a bit more, it could be a snappier and juicer experience to get players hooked on the mechanic. 

Developer

thanks for the advice ,we will implement that.

Submitted

It is quite hard indeed, but the presentation is just nff awesome

Developer(+1)

thank you so much, glad you liked

Submitted

nice physics and fx cant pass the second lvl though, keep falling down may be ground collider is but off or its my browser.......ill try later with different one.  

Developer

yeah it's the problem of web export, try using slomo at start of level , keep it on until you touch the ground and it will not fall, thank you so much for playing

Submitted

The art style was really on point!

Developer

thank you so much nathan

Submitted

It was tough at first but then I got some good shots haha.  I like the neon tron look of it! Congrats on submitting such an awesome game to the jam~ please check out mine if you haven't :D

Developer

sure will do, thank you so much for playing

Submitted

It was hard to get used to the controls, but once I learned the technique it was super satisfying. Really polished game for a jam (even though I got the bug, but the slow mo could fix it). Awesome game!

Developer

the bug is only in web export, all other exports work fine, may be webGL is not able to process so many things at a time and we didn't pay much attention to optimization due to time limits

Submitted(+1)

Yeah, I saw the comments, so it wasn't a problem. Of course it's hard to fix all the bugs in a jam, there's so much little time that you can hardly fix everything. I really enjoyed the game

Submitted

What a good game! Please keep creating games. :)

Developer

thank you so much darenn, glad you liked

The game looks great! Very polished with lots of juicy feedback. It is however very difficult to play as you can't very easily line up your shots.

Developer

yes it is, also we didn't aim to make it easy to play, thank you so much for playing

Submitted(+1)

Developer
