Nice I enjoyed it. Pretty fun game and managed to complete it. Great job

Thank you! :')

Really creative idea for the theme. Solid implementation of a classic game. I liked the particle trail on the ball and the 'score' being displayed via the planet.
 I think I hit a soft lock though when I dropped the ball at a heavy horizontal angle. I think it might have went out to the side and missed a death detection box or something. I guess I can just restart but it's bit of a bummer I felt like I was doing pretty well.

I believe that was the case, I'm sorry :'c
I'm working on some projects and one of them will probably be a pinball game. I'll make sure the detection boxes have the right size :)

No worries, I've made that mistake myself. Since then, I make my out of bounds/death detection boxes like 10000 wide, why not.

Loved the idea and the core concept. The gameplay could be improved with time tho.

This is a nice zen game. It's satisfying to see the ball collect planets and watch your own planet grow, and music really helped with atmosphere of it. My only complaint is that for 3 lives in a row, the ball kept spawning in the same direction that lead out of bounds.

Interesting to use pinball for this game jam.  It was fun.  There's a lot of room to expand the concept.  

My entry is also one where you have to grow a planet, but the game play is quite different.

This is a really good game concept, and as a result is also fun to play, almost adictive! Its also a really good demonstration of physics, so well done there. If you had more time, I'd have loved to see you embrace the pinball concept even further, with a larger playing field and more obstacles. Other than that, well done!

What I really didn't expect to see with the theme "growth" is a pinball game :) Now I've seen everything.

The game was fun, I would prefer to have more control on the growth of the planet, like taking decisions or buying stuff but still, it is a great game, congratulations!
