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

Simple, But it was not bad. I could see it entertaining others for longer. I played for e few levels until death. Keep it up buddy!


Zanzlanz responds:

Well thank you for playing! :D

Decent, needs a little more accuracy on where the ball/string hitboxes are though. I found quite a few times my ball hit things it wasn't in range to block, and other times I hit something dead on with the ball and it did damage to me.

Zanzlanz responds:

Yes exactly. I used a line to line algorithm, but I didn't realize I should have used a circle to line algorithm. I might fix that soon. Thanks for rating

I lost to a girl a few times in tetherball, thanks for bringing back unwanted memories.


Zanzlanz responds:

Beating the game might just be the only way to cope with your regret :3
Haha but really, a girl could probably beat me at almost any sport, don't feel bad XD

this is a awesomely fun game also this seems to me that this is almost like miley cirus wrecking ball but I never heard it before


Zanzlanz responds:

I knew someone would mention Miley Cyrus early in the reviews! XD
No that wasn't my intentions, but I'm sure everyone's thinking that, lol!
Thank you! C:

Good stuff. The visual effects and music make it all worth it. It could use a tiny bit more polish, but for a 48-hour 1-person project this is pretty awesome.


Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks very much!
I probably overworked myself, but I am really happy that it turned out just like I imagined it too :)

I spent an hour fixing a couple bugs to put on Newgrounds, but if I put more time into it, I'd improve collision, particle-lag, and animations.
