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

When I started this game, I was like "Oh geez, I'm controlling with the arrow keys? This is gonna be a mess." But I was pleasantly surprised as the ball actually controlled really really nicely!

Another fear I had going into this was that it would get too hectic and unfair towards the end, but you also proved my cynicism wrong in that regard. The bonuses you get upon leveling up are really helpful and keeps the game fair going all the way to the end.

Also, the music you used was perfect for this game.

I was slightly disappointed at the fact that I couldn't keep going after getting to level 10. Having the level cap end there and having a survival would have been fun.


Zanzlanz responds:

Thank you very much! I'm really did want to make the game rewarding, so I'm very happy that the controls and leveling helped with that. :)

I made the music for the game. Personally I'd want it a bit more energetic, but I stuck with it anyway. I feared that if I spent too much time making the music, I'd run out of time to finish making the game.

I also wanted it to go on forever, but since I didn't have enough content to keep it going, I ended up giving it a 10 level cap. But if I end up making a sequel, I'd be focusing on endless gameplay :D

Thanks again!

Nice, but a little easy. 4/5 :]


Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks! I understand it's a bit easy... but if I make the sequel, I'll make sure it's much more difficult >:D

beat it in 615. nice game, but only had to bounce the ball left and right for 90% of the time...


Zanzlanz responds:

Thankz! I've seen that technique done in person a lot... it gets the job done, but takes twice the time to beat XD
