This abstract game game involves using a wrecking ball to block ninja stars from chopping your string. Or something like that! xD

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare #28!
Please rate it! http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=11407
This is fixed up a bit from the compo. Lots of small bugs are fixed, it's a little bit easier, and there are medals! ;D

Music:
http://zanzlanz.bandcamp.com/album/str1ngle-soundtrack
(Also, the main soundtrack is to the left)

- Use the arrow (or WASD) keys to direct the wrecking ball.
- Do not let stars touch the rope! You lose health.
- Run the wrecking ball into stars to destroy them.
- Collect power-ups and upgrades!
- HAVE FUN! :D

Edit:
- Made it a little bit more challenging
- The timer accounts for lag
- Q toggles particles/quality

I loved this game! Very unique concept, really had me on the edge of my seat in a panicked frenzy, fighting life and limb to survive and protect myself. I was around half my health, and there was a wave of those homing spike-balls that were centimeters away from my string, and I knew I was done for, and a torch powerup suddenly appeared, and as I struggled for it, the INSTANT before I touched it, the game was complete, and I had emerged victorious. I have enjoyed this game fully, and I also enjoyed your other game, Convey, and I look forward to playing other games by you and waiting for more games from you in the future. Keep it up, 'cause for 48 hours this is an amazing game.


Zanzlanz responds:

Hahah I love your story, because those "perfectly timed powerups" are always the best thing ever. Thanks again for playing and reviewing!
