  • Excellent. I really enjoyed the game play (I'm a Peggle and Pinball fan). Really like the sound effects, tunes and visuals. The amount of switch presses are minimal in play. I like the symbols used on menu options (although there are a few missing, e.g. PLAY AGAIN / MENU). I don't understand the point of the EXIT option, as it doesn't seem to do anything (doesn't exit full-screen mode for me). Maybe it works on an Apple computer. Would LOVE this on PC. A few possible improvements. Scanning speed and Gun Speed may as well be tied together. Then you'd reduce the amount of scanning down to 4 elements, rather than 7. Anyway, a joy. Excellent job.
  • This adhered to the one button with no loss or detrimental outcome when stepping away rule, so good job there! I enjoyed the fun pachinko-style levels. Simple, yet interesting. One bug I found when trying to get a high enough score on the waterfall level to progress to the third level was if I shoot the ball perfectly downward in order to perpetually get it gaining points and speed, it eventually gets so fast that it clips through the bumper rectangle and loses a life.

Pretty cool game hard to time with both going at same time. Pretty good for a one button game so yeah.

Both concept and execution are well done, congrats! A little annoyance i had is the fact that both ball launcher and catcher are moving asynchronous at different speeds. It gets really hard to think before you shoot.

It is such a simple consept but you made it really fun. you make it require a certin amount of point rather than getting all of the blocks. Only made it to level 2 but was really fun.

Thanks! You can get lots of points on level 2 by shooting the ball straight down. I will remember to make level 2 a bit easier though because I think I made it too hard.

Love it. Some thoughts.

1. Full screen doesn't work for me. Not in Chrome.

2. Any-key to play is great, but that should work too for the menu select system.

3. Wish there was more in-game progression. E.g. clear one screen to go to the next. Or at least, have the target balls reappear when you clear them all.

4. A download PC / Mac version would be great.

5. Would be nice to have symbols for Play (VCR play symbol), Settings (cog or spanner symbol), and quit (European EXIT sign)... for those who can't read. Ideally symbols/graphics for the other options too.

Fun game.

Thanks for the feedback! The game should be good now but I couldn't get full screen to work.
