nice

pretty fun actually, great engine, it kept me hooked for a while but then i started to lose intrest (but voted 5 anyway)

There were a few problems with it that i could see.

The main problem is that the levels were all too repetitive. I dont really think level design comes into play here, but just the nature of the game makes it so all you really have to do is funnel the ball into the goal. I beat nearly every level (well i stopped after a while, it was getting boring) in one or 2 tries due to the nature of the game. There wasn't too much variety, a few of the levels seemed the same even.

Another problem is the graphics. Yes, they are very clean and fit the game, but after playing for a while they start to seem bland. There's a number of ways you could fix this. Adding a motion trail to the ball would be a great help. Perhaps adding a particle effect or something when you get into the goal. And changing the background every few levels. You'd be suprised how much that helps. With no end in sight, and no apparent goal or reward for beating the levels, I kinda quit. It needs some sort of a goal. It didnt keep track of my deaths, my time, my resets, the current level #, or anything. It just seemed like an engine. Not sure if it told you that at the end, but it helps to know.

Adding perhaps different color balls and different color holes could help vary it up too, maby even coins or keys to collect before reaching the goal. It would help keep the levels fresh so it's not just "Funnel the ball into the goal".

Don't let these comments make it seem like it's a bad game or anything, i still voted 5. It was an excelent game and hooked me for a while. Just I'm very picky when it comes to this stuff. I hate seeing a great concept under-developed. So my suggestion: Make a sequal. Good stuff though, it will probably fair well in the portal.

PS does this review seem familiar? It should :P

Heh, thanks :).
I didn't really expect people to play through the whole game. My record is like 22 minutes, and I've played the game quite a few times :)

Yeah, I'll add more stuff in the sequel, so it doesn't get so repetive.

Thanks alot, I'll keep that in mind. Graphics isn't really my main area, so..
And it does tell you the time at the end :P, after 126 levels

"Adding perhaps different color balls and different color holes could help vary it up too, maby even coins or keys to collect before reaching the goal. It would help keep the levels fresh so it's not just "Funnel the ball into the goal"."

Once again, thanks alot for the tips

I'll definately make a sequel, with your comments in mind. And I in no way take your comments offensive or anything, after all, someone saying "AMAZING GAME!!!1111" wont really help me develop :D (though that kind of reviews are also kinda nice :P)

Thanks for all the help, and thanks for the 5 :)

Now does THAT seam familiar? :D
