Great concept! Well done!

Played with a PS controller. Feels like it would have maybe been more pinbally to use the triggers rather than the buttons? Just a thought. :)

Cheers,

Developer

Oh weird! It's supposed to work. I actually set Godot to use either triggers or the bumpers! 😩 I don't have a PlayStation controller to test, but it worked on my Logitech dual shock gamepad. You're right though! It definitely is the better way to play the game.

I really like this concept, nice gameplay!

Thank you!

Nice idea!! a little bit to much to control and focus on, but i played with a keyboard... maybe it is easier with a gamepad. Overall arts, sounds and music are nice!

Developer

Thank you! Yeah, sometimes there's a lot going on.

I stuck lmao

Developer

Oh nooo! Far right bumper? I had a few other people get stuck over there :( The problem with doing jams by myself is I don't have time to run all the tests I need.

just like the middle area between the first and left area on that flat square. It was pretty funny

Developer

Haha! Whoops! I need to set up a table tilt maneuver for sure

As a fellow ball game maker, I really enjoyed the concept! Pinball doesnt get enough credit lol. Good game!

Developer

Thank you! Ball game devs unite!

Wow! I really like this concept! It's definitely ambitious in terms of getting it right first time. I feel you have really managed to make pinball more exciting through mixing platformer mechanics with it. I really look forward to seeing what you come up with next! I don't really have any suggestions other than the fact that I can see the potential in this project. Thank you for making this game! :)

Developer

Thank you so much!! Glowing words 😊

Based on the response I've gotten, this is on my list of games to complete. Make sure to follow me and it'll let you know when I'm done updating it!

Honestly one of the best games among those of the jam I've tried ! The concept of pinball-platformer is great ! So great that I actually wonder if having ball shots is really needed, it complicates the control and it's a bit tedious anyway.

Great job, I hope you expend on this game later on 👍

Thanks! :D

I got the idea an old Sega Genesis game called Sonic Spinball. Loved that game when I was a kid, but wanted my own *ahem* spin on it.

You're right the battle aspect isn't as fleshed as it could be, which makes it less fun than it should be. If wishes were horses! I spent too long figuring out the quirks of rotation and ran out of time making the enemies interesting. And the table is a little difficult to manuever. Maybe a directional dash function so there's a tad more control to the pinball movement? Hmm...

dash would be so much better yes !
