Very cool!  Solo pong with upgrades and enemies is a great idea.  Keep up the good work and congrats on submitting a game to the jam.  Pls check out mine if you have time.

It was a little confusing at the beginning, but after a while it becomes really fun to play.

The visuals and sfx's are nice, maybe you can add some music as well. Some parts of the UI are a bit vague; orange is my health, cycle bar when a new enemy spawns (I think), white number is kills, yellow number is no clue, xp bar is when I get a new bug. The game isn't too complicated, but an explanation or improvement of the UI would be welcome.

This is such a great game!!!

Good things: graphics (incredible job), sounds, effects, j u i c e, lack of tutorial (I loved figuring stuff out)

Bad things: slow progression, and that's pretty much it!

This is a well-polished, well-designed, satisfying and fun game! Amazing work for a 3-day jam, seriously. Love it.

Developer

At first, I really enjoyed this game because the sound and particle effects made killing enemies really satisfying. However, I do wish there was some more description with all the numbers on screen, and that the XP filled a little quicker since it got really repetitive after a while. Overall, though, the game is pretty polished for 72 hours and was really fun! Good job!

Thank you for playing !!! <3 the ui was intentional , so that the player would have to figure out what are those numbers.  and the xp is also a bit buggy ( it gives random number of xps) haha. I'm Glad that you liked it !!! <3

It's a funny game with interesting "bugs" :3  

I think if the power ups of the ball were permanent, there would be more sense of progress, but overall it's pretty good

I liked that sometimes when it hit an enemy, the ball was homing to another enemy immediately, making a small combo

Developer(+1)

Thank You for playing !! and giving some suggestions <3 I'm glad you liked that combo thing ( maybe ill add some score multiplier if that happens)

Great game! Difficult but fun. The sound effects are really nice. A creative game design, needs a some kind of tutorial/instructions though, as I wasn't sure what to do at first. 

Developer

Thank youu For Playing !! and giving some feedbacks !! I will add some tutorial soon!! <3

Awersome game but pretty hard, especially to send the ball wherever you want!!!

Apart from the that, the graphics and the sound effects were fantastic!! Keep it up!!

Developer

Thank Youu!! I'm glad that you enjoyed the game !n <3

tutorial is NEEDED!

Thank you for playing and giving a feedback!! I will on future updates . it's just i don't have enough time to put tutorialss hahaha <3

Cool game! Well done!

But when I started it I had no idea what to do... I started killing the enemies by just running my mouse over them and I thought the ball was the enemy. Then I died. Killing the enemies the wrong way should not make the same sound as killing them the right way. Also a small tutorial in the beginning would've helped alot. 

When you get the bug that makes the ball teleport around, there's no gameplay left in the game. You are not fast enough to smack the ball and change it's direction, you just have to stand still and hope that the ball teleports to an enemy...

But the game looks great and it's really well made!

Developer

Thank youuu!!! for your feedbacks!! haha about the teleporting bug. It's meant to be unplayable after you got all those bugs hahahaha ! I'm Glad you enjoyed it !n <3

An incredibly huge amount of work and effort is put into this game. I can compare the feelings from this game with a giant remote control from which you don’t know what to expect, but I want to check all the buttons that are on it. Great job!

Developer

Thank you !! It is truee i made this game with effort and dedication !! I am glad that you enjoyed it <3 I'll also play your game too!!

Now we are cooking with gas! Really glad to see you solved the "uploading the game" issue xD.

And I'm glad because I loved it! Really polished, really lovely effects, I liked the gimmick of getting bugs, and I enjoyed the overall mechanics a lot. I end up losing on purpose in these endless games, but it's more because I want to try out more games than fault of the game itself.

I do think the game starts a bit slow, at least for my taste it could gain EXP a bit faster. But later on it gets more frantic. It's just the start that feels a tiny bit sloggish.

Kudos man!

Developer

Thank you for giving those feedbacks !! <3 i really appreciate it <3 i'll also play your game

Sadly there is no build, so I can't rate it. But from what I can see out of the game page, visuals look very nice! And the gameplay idea sounds intriguing, the cards and stuff. AAAAAA why no downloads? ._.
