Fun game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

I often had trouble when trying to figure out which character I was controlling, the game can become quite messy when all four players are on the ball. I may try to play it with friends :)

Best game so far, very solid!

Cons: kept getting stuck in the corner, and it was very hard to actually keep the ball for some time.

Thank you :).

We are planning a new version of Dash Ball. Not now (cause of others projects), but during this year.

Follow me on twitter https://twitter.com/LouckSky or itch.io to get some news ;).

This is going into my couch co-op collection. There's some serious depth of play to this.

Really well presented, it looks so cool! The arena and crowd are great, and it feels good to play.

A great entry! Loved both the graphics and the music and sound effects, had a little trouble at first trying to understand what I had to do but eventually caught on. This should be a real life sport!

Excellent! Fun, self-explanatory, easy to play, nice artwork, sounds and music. Very good game!

Brilliant!

This game is terrific. I loved the mechanics. The IA is difficult to beat at the beginning, but as soon as you understand how to play well, it becomes addictive. Loved the aesthetics too (awesome pixel-art).

Great concept and mechanics. Reminds me a bit of rocket league. The AI is well written and does a good job of keeping possession of the ball. It's a little hard to tell which member of the team you are in the heat of the moment. I hope you continue developing this . I'd love to see it as a full game soon!

Very cool! I loved the graphics and overall feel! One suggestions I had is that when using the keyboard, I felt that it was awkward that all the controls (arrow keys, rshift, and return) were all right next to each other on my laptop. Because of that, I had to play the game with one hand which I found awkward. I think it'd be better if I could play with two hand.

Thank you for your feedback :).

I will check the gamepad input and will try to make a desktop version.

I played it with keyboard first and then gamepad, and is it just me or is keyboard way more responsive? There's nothing wrong with my gamepad but it seemed I was able to dash A LOT less then the AI were, I just couldn't keep up. I was tapping the A key wondering why I couldn't dash when the AI would hit me 2-3 times before I could. Maybe I'm just rubbish at it but it was getting a little frustrating. Just another note on the AI, when they grab the ball they just seem to gravitate towards the corners and stay there, just seems a bit weird.

Otherwise it looks and sounds really cool. And I'm sure if I had someone here to play with it'd be a lot more fun. I may give it another go when I have someone round, but probably not before the jam ends! :(

Also, desktop version? :)

Thank you for your comments, everyone :).

I take into account all your feedbacks for the next version of our game (maybe a "super HD remake turbo edition" ? :p).

For the moment, we will not update the game in order to respect gamejam rules.

Wish I could figure exactly how to play the game, when I can dash, when I cannot, what I'm supposed to do with the ball... but the graphics are super nice, I liked the character designs very much(really dig the 80s extreme sports look these people have :V ) and while I was confused, I think the gameplay is actually fun. I bet it's even better in local multiplayer! :D

Very cool! Shorter game rounds could make this very addictive. Good luck!

I really liked the game! Very fun to play overall, thou its a little hard hahaha. The AI sometimes bugs and gets "stuck" on the corner.

Anyways, nicely done (:

damn, i suck at this game XD
cool concept, and nice style

I feel like AI are two hardcore dashball players :D
We tried it with my friend and could only get half their score.
The game has great potential but I guess feedback of what's going on should be clearer.
Anyway it was fun. I especially like how the empty opponent keep covering one of your team members, to DEATH! :D

Thank you for your comment :). I take into account your feedback for the next version of the game.

If you can, try our game with a friend!

I enjoyed the round of it I played. However, the AI tended to get stuffed in the corners and I didn't really feel like I could rely on my team mate for anything. Nice work on the entire package though!
