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

Nice game! Half the fun is keeping that ball under control... kinda hard when you get the torch power up that makes me wanna swing wildly at everything >_<.


Zanzlanz responds:

Haha thanks! I did think swinging wildly would become a fun mechanic :D

This is a very fun game. I have no idea how I missed it till today. I like the simple gameplay mechanics, yet it is still challenging. It has appropriate graphics and the power ups all make sense. It feels well put together and has a nice chirping tune that meshes well with the gameplay. While this is nothing really ground breaking it is still very fun to waste a few moments with it.

Just an FYI: The reason I found your game today was because I was flagging abusive reviews, so I guess something positive came from that.


Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks for the review, which sums the whole game up really nicely!

And thank you for flagging that review! It helps a lot!

Crazy. My short attention span is loving it, but it's crazy difficult. I can't stop playing. Can only get to level 4. Good work.


Zanzlanz responds:

Hahaha, well thanks for playing!
You can beat it, I know it! :D
