Having finished all five levels (I hope I didn't forget) , I can say this game is alright but lacking. It makes me want to play actual air hockey.

I found the lack of control sensitivity to be frustrating. The control is the biggest gripe I have with this game. I found it hard to move my mallet in time to react to my opponent. It was annoying; I had to go on the defensive more often than I liked because of the sluggish response. Other air hockey flash games I've played have better sensitivity (maybe too much!) but this one's is awfully slow. Please change that.

Being forced to adapt to the controls didn't make the game that much harder. There are only five levels, and they're pretty easy. Before I go on, why can't I use the keyboard when playing single player? Why can't I use the mouse for a two player game? Having different control schemes for single and multiplayer modes doesn't make sense. Back on topic, the AI gets gradually smarter as you progress (but still quite dull, I'll return to that) ..and I think the size of your mallet decreases. The air hockey table is fairly standard, if not a bit small. You have a minute per level to outscore your opponent. There are occasional power-ups (those circles with letters on them), but I can't tell what they are. They didn't make that much of a difference anyway; the game was too easy. I drew twice (drawing forces a replay) and breezed through the rest.

The AI isn't that smart, overall. There is a slight increase in difficulty, which is compounded by the fact that the AI can move its mallet faster than you can. On the second level, the AI kept on knocking the puck into the top-left corner of the rink...for thirty-five seconds! That's half a level. If I finished everything in one go, that'd be a tenth of the game.

But anyway, my bothering to finish this game probably meant that I kinda enjoyed it. I think you could add more levels, more difficulty and more things to play around with. In comparison to other air hockey games, this is pretty mediocre.

Fun as it was, beating a computer was too easy and controls were taking all the fun out of it. Game mechanics are great, but controls are terrible. Also, music is a bit too repetitive

The mouse control is really sluggish. You should let people use keyboard controls for single player.

The mouse is very sluggish when using the mouse. Also the playing field needs to be a rectangle and not a square.

This game is terrible! thw mosuse is sluggish, multiplayer control sucks, and overall I think I hate the damn loop the most, seeing as if you turn off the music, the SFX is gone too. There are so many games (exactly) like these out there, why oh why would ANYONE waste their time playing this piece of junk. I'm sorry if this sounds like I'm bashing but this is just terrible. The only way your flash passed was due to dear mercy because it's so amateurish, they're giving you a shot, when in reality, you're making money off a (really, terribly lazy) rip off of a great game that's been redone better, and available here, on newgrounds, and elsewhere on the internets.

goodbye, sir, and I hope you take this blasphemious game down!
