Bored? Are moments of your life dripping by, one by one? Then give those moments some excitement by changing the humdrum into the SO FUN!

Use your boring everyday objects like erasers, mugs, combs, keys and much, much, MUCH more to create a landscape where thousands of balls can bounce around! Move a paper clip onto your desk, and aim to bounce balls into a syrofoam cup - that simple!

With 55 levels, 10 songs, a Time Attack mode, a Sky Ball mode, and more, it's a lot - And on top of that, there's over 150 items in the level editor and WAY more levels floating around in the community!

Not enough? Earn pinwheels in the levels, then spend them adding Balloons to a level you can share with the world with a simple link. Or sample one of the levels from the community! Endless content, endless joy, endless FUN!

i liked this game but...

you need to learn how to handle criticism.


TonyDowney responds:

I'll respectfully disagree, if I can. The changes we have made to this game based on constructive criticism (and unconstructive criticism) easily number in the hundreds. This game - truly, any game - would be a pile of rubbish if the developers couldn't respond both quickly and meaningfully to criticism received.

I don't assume that this game is perfect, nor that we know everything. We take all suggestions with a grain of salt, but we do read up, and we do listen to the community. After all, you guys are all that matter.

Meh.

It's a cute and quirky concept but it got dull quickly for me.


TonyDowney responds:

Huzzah, our first 'meh'!

Not bad, son

It gets a little easy once you figure out what to do, but I still enjoyed it!


TonyDowney responds:

Hee hee hee... it's for users like you that we created Time Attack mode!

What the fuck is the point?

Seriously ive been playing and playing and I still dont get the point at all. Ok yeah get a high score ect ect but thats about it.... basically set up garbage everywhere on screen to keep the balls bouncing around and force them into the cup. Click on the tube or whatever is launching the balls and have them turn white and give you even more points or some shit.... not a clue and not very fun in the long run.


TonyDowney responds:

Most of the games I grew up playing had no point (other than the recurring theme of genocide), so I guess that was the idea. We still included unlockables and a few places to spend your pinwheels and high scores and stuff, just to bring it up to current day. But yes, I freely admit that we didn't spend our days mulling about the purpose of TumbleBall, beyond just having fun.

But yeah. Space Invaders? Alien Genocide. Zelda? Monster genocide. And Mario? Mario, oh man... apparently if a useless head of state gets kidnapped - not even threatened or used for ransom, but just kidnapped - then the calm and measured response is the attempted elimination of the Koopa race.

I'm really confused...

The four tutorial levels at the beginning were totally confusing and really didn't help explain the game. And then when I got to the game I really couldn't play because I didn't know what I was doing or what the hell was going on :/


TonyDowney responds:

Hmmm... we'll have to take that into consideration with our tutorial revamp we're doing tonight. It's a tough balance between hand-holding and discovery in a game as unique as this.
