this game is super fun you should keep working on it and take it to the next level

Developer

This game is really good, but on my first game I encountered a game-breaking bug where the ball was trapped on the edge of the arena. There's a picture of it here: https://ibb.co/bZb8gn

Developer

Yea, I know this bug, it's already fixed, but I can't upload new build, because, you know, you can't upload new builds because jam is not over yet. Thanks for playing, hope you liked it.

As a fan of Rocket League I really liked it! The only thing that I would like to see is the ball gaining speed as it falls down, thus falling faster the longer its falling. Just like in RL (Rocket League - Real Life).

Thank you for suggesting this, it will be available after jam rating ends.

Hate to say it, but at least for me this started to cause motion sickness after 5-10 minutes. Like the music and concept though. May want an epilepsy warning as well... Again, I hate to say it, I was enjoying it up until my head started to swim a bit...

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the feedback, appriciate your honesty. Yes, this game is not for averyone - it can't be. I will consider issuing epilepsy warning, although, from my gamedev experience that might not be a case (check out my other game "Shape Rave" as the epilepsy example). Glad you enjoyed it for 5-10 minutes :D By the way, there is no motion blur, may be adding it will reduce advese effect of motion sickness.

Is that online?

Cuz im pretty sure the green one was cheating

Developer(+1)

Hehe :D I wish I had time to implement online multyplayer doing jam (did that before - not that hard), but it is comming in a post-jam version. With a controller and a friend, there is split screen multiplayer.

I'd like to write a massive comment about everything I loved in this game, but as a Tron fan, a Synthwave addicted, a futurepunk and cyberpunk lover the only thing I can say is that you totally nailed this entry

Well, for a guy who never played Rocket League, that was pretty brutal...
One of the best submissions i've played so far. Music is great, graphics are great, gameplay is fun and addictive. Great job.

Developer

Im very pleased to hear that! Thank you!

Definitely reminds me of Rocket League, but is just different enough to stand on its own. The only issue I have with it is that the physics of hitting the ball seem a bit strange. I get that the game is trying to assist players in kicking towards their target goal, and that's probably necessary to an extent. But sometimes it makes it too easy, while other times you have to circle all the way around the ball. I think an interesting additional mechanic would be the ability to pivot your ship while on auto pilot in a set direction, and then the ship launches the ball in the direction faced. So for example, you could set yourself up in a trajectory towards the ball, then spin to face your goal, and when you hit the ball, it launches it that way. That would also empower the player to make more aggressive power slides and other maneuvers to fight for the ball.

Developer

That was original mechanic, and it is still in the code. But I find out it is super hard, may be because I and not that good at my own game. I think I will include that in the option something like "player assist" or "guided ball". Thank you for the feedback - appreciated!

One of the best games in this jam! Just add a ball indicator and you're golden. We should host a GDU tournament of this game ;)

Developer

Yes, indicator is the first on my to-do list. Thanks for playing!

The visuals are amazing! I see way too much potential on this one.

Good job!
