Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous.

  • Honestly I had a pretty rough time playing it, even though I wanted to. Instructions were a bit unclear and I just couldn't figure out if I was actually doing anything to the balancing beam. Nice idea and concept, but if there were more feedback in the game (like visual cues or something) to let me know what i'm doing ACTUALLY works, then that might make it easier to play.

I like the idea. Fits very good to the theme!

Gameplay was very funny (and I hate you for the shrinking bar)

I just noticed. that the bar is behaving a little strange after i flipped it over

Developer

Thanks! Originally the idea was to make the bar get larger, but I scrapped it haha. I'm working on fixing controls post-jam, and I'll take a look at the bar's behavior when flipped. Thanks for letting me know! :D

Cool game, I got a score of 16 on the first try. Would really recommend snapping the mouse ball on to the seesaw, I accidentally took my cursor through the seesaw multiple times and ended up pushing it back in the other direction from below. Nicely done, and very apt for the theme.

Developer

Thanks! And the snapping idea sounds nice, I might implement that after the jam. I’ve got a couple more ideas as well to tone down the difficulty somewhat. :)

Insanely hard to control but satisfying.

Yeah, my goal is to try to make it a bit easier after the jam :)

Oh wow! Nice score! The bar not shrinking is a known bug I'm fixing atm. Thanks again for playing!
