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:

(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

Too fun and addictive to be made in only 48 hours. Perfect job my man.

Well it was possibru!
Thanks so much! In reality, I didn't add in everything I imagined in the 48 hours, but it's a great start for a full game! :D

Whoo, beat it in 561 seconds! This was a fun game, was almost a bit discouraged by the initial 'this is a hard game' message when I lost, but then I realized I wasn't supposed to hit the enemies with the rope, lol, became a bit easier after that. :) I like the idea, and the pace, and the power-ups, it's fast-paced and addicting. Good fun!

Even the first test tells me this is a very addicting and fun game mechanic. Altho only 9/10 due to the hitbox being a bit too big, making this a little too easy. Keep it up :D


Zanzlanz responds:

Thank you, Canisma!

Believe it or not, the 'hitbox' isn't technically long, but it's just very inaccurate due to the speeds. Some times it's forgiving, other times it's cruel!

I will definitely need to tweak that though, if/when I make the sequel.
