Balance the tray by moving the mouse around. If the tray falls, flip it back over by swinging the mouse around.
Avoid (or collect!) the balls but be careful, while they increase your score, they make it harder to balance.
-- In response to comments, I have fixed the balls being able to fall through the sides of the tray. The other fixes (weight dependant on size of the balls, and make the tray lean if the balls are all on one side) haven't increased the gameplay by any noticeable amount and really slow the flash down. Therefore I left those out. Thanks for the feedback though :)

Good, fun implementation of a simple idea.

Wow, two good games submitted in a row -- must be the apocalypse.

I really enjoyed this game, simple as it was. Everybody has tried balancing a rake, pencil, flagpole, chainsaw, or whatever on their hand at some point, so it's a familiar concept that plays out well.

Graphics were clean and uncomplicated, which is what the game needed. Controls were responsive and easy to figure out. Adding the balls was a smart feature, since it allowed the game to start at a easily manageable difficulty and ramped it up as time passed.

On the downside, it wasn't clear if different colors and sized changed the score accordingly, and several balls passed through the rake when it seems they should've been caught. No sound to speak of, but that's a minor disappointment -- anything added would be minor anyway.

Plenty of replayability. This is a great, short term game to pull up if you're waiting on hold on the phone or have just a minute to kill. Great submission.

Simple game.

A simple game, but very fun and addictive.
