Fun game! Especially on the 3rd level where the level design became more suited to the specific type of platformer you are going for. We found a small bug where if you were rotating very slowly into a wall you were touching, and then jumped, your jump power would accumulate each frame the ball was adjacent to the wall, causing you to jump super high. It was a pretty fun bug though. Overall a fun idea that has a lot of potential.

A very interesting game! I could see a longer, refined version of this on the Android store or something. At times, I had difficulty getting the character over small walls since jumping straight up didn't allow for horizontal movement. Great work overall!

I'd love to see this get fleshed out: the movement is really fun! Also, I love a game that can communicate it's controls and mechanics visually. I initially thought to avoid the enemies, but it's so easy to collide with them, I think that part is clear too. Well done!

I found the controls hard to master but then using the ramps was able to figure it out. It was neat. I wish there were a checkpoint system.

Thanks for checking it out! Agree, the controls take a little playing with to get used to for the more precise jumps but I found it gave the game a bit of a different feel so left it in. I'm glad you stuck with it long enough to enjoy it!

BTW - While time got the better of me before I could add in a Game Over/Restart screen or Checkpoints, I did leave in a cheat on the Title Screen where you can press "2" to go to Level 2 and "3" to go to Level 3.
