It's a shame the developer went for a rage game because it could have been a nice upgrade launch game instead. But with so many clouds that you can't see before you shoot, it is nothing but a cheap rage game that you get sick of after maybe 10 launches. If there was a way to see the clouds before you shoot, like a radar upgrade (common in launch games), or maybe even an upgrade to make fewer clouds appear, this could be one of the first good launch games in years.


I really liked the game. The sound was good and didn't stand out which is what music is supposed to do. It would be cool if you got bonus points for hitting birds and made a couple of other ways to make it not as much repetitive. Overall though, really well done!


Thanks for the feedback!

I was thinking about doing something with the birds and what not, but I ran out of time.

Glad you enjoyed it! :)

My bad, I didn't realize WASD controlled the ball. Oops.

Nice artstyle and calm music, I actually got kind of relaxed by playing this! 

After spam shooting the wall a few times and upgrading everything, I managed to get a highscore of 968. No end of pole in sight though. 

(I'm pretty sure it's not possible to complete the game in this state)


Thanks for the comment!

Maybe it's not clear enough, but when you have max bounce and high ball control, you can use that to bounce on the clouds to reach higher. That's where the platforming part comes in.

I've completed it a few times, so definitely possible! :)

Aha, now this changes everything! My mistake for not picking that up! I think I tried it at one point, but the impact was so insignificant that I didn't realize that the ball moved. Now I got 1900, and I'm starting to get why this is a rage game. Well done!
