Cool :) my AI weren't much of a challenge. They kind of rekt themselves again the walls. Interesting idea though :) racing in a vein. Kind of reminds me of Osmosis Jones.

Submitted

This game is really cool! I love the sound and the visuals. I think there should be a better how to play, because it took me a while to understand, and the AI is kinda dum, but besides that I think this game is really great!~

Developer

Yeah I first time making AI like that, didn't have enough time to make them perfect  xD.

What do you think would of helped you in the how to play?

Submitted

I was a little confused by the balancing the ones you eat.

Must say, this is a very solid entry, great sounds, great gamepad control. Love the art style, the gameplay is quite addicting. Tried it out with the keyboard first, if you have a gamepad certainly use it, makes the whole experience much better. Very well done, I really love the whole feel to this game.

Developer

Thanks for the high praise friend!  :D

I'm glad you went controller in the end,  it's definitely designed with that in mind, keyboard is just for those few who may not have one.

I really happy that people can have fun with something I made!  Puts a smile on my face!

Submitted

The gameplay was kinda hard to control, but still fun. Really liked the sound.

Developer

Were you on keyboard or controller? 

Thanks for trying my game!  :)

Submitted

Keyoboard.

Maybe it was more of getting used to, becuase I played it now more and it came out more naturally, really fun!

Developer

Definitely give a controller a go if you have one!

Submitted

Nice game and very addicting, the controls could have been better but a fun racing game none the less... Keep it up

Developer

Thanks!  :)

Just out of interest, were you using a controller or keyboard?

Submitted

A keyboard, should I try it out with a controller..??

Developer(+1)

Yep!!!  I had a controller in mind with this entry, keyboard was just a backup for those who may not have one.

I'm almost certain if you played it again with a controller you will have a much easier time with controlling the character.

Tell me how you go if you do!   :)

Submitted

Surely I'll give it a shot with the controller, If you had put some sorta popup like controller is recommended then if would be nice. Anyways I'll try it out with the controller. Thanks for the heads up.

I loved the game! The theme is hit perfectly where keeping balance is very important to the gameplay, the aesthetics look consistent and nice and the sounds are nice to listen to and compliment the gameplay wonderfully. 

The only criticism i have for the game is that the gameplay feels a little difficult to control, the controls feel inverted sometimes. Sometimes it also feels like you spin out of control while other times you dont turn fast enough. collecting the balls can often be really challenging however i would imagine thats the point of the game. However with that aside the gameplay was still interesting to keep me engaged while playing. as such i leave it this rating:

3/5 gameplay

5/5 theme

5/5 Aesthetic

5/5 Sound


Overall the game is a 4.5/5 or 5/5 rounded up


Great work!

Developer

Thanks so much for the review!!  :D  Yeah its pretty hard to handle without practice on a keyboard, much easier if you use a controller!

Submitted

Can you port to mac if possible?

Developer(+1)

I've never tried before so I'm not sure sorry, I will have a quick look into it.

Submitted

Appreciate the gamepad support and fast delivery. Still ~14 hours to go.
Very subtle take on the theme.
Also appreciate the choice to draw the gamepad from the perspective you might see if someone was showing you. Thought it was an interesting little choice.

Developer

Thanks for the Comment!  Hope you had fun playing it!  :D
