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

Cracking game - was having a really great time but then flash cracked when it got a bit hectic on level 8 :/ Still a 5/5 in my books!

Thanks for the nice rating!

Ahhhgg why does it crash?! XD I really want to fix it, but there's no clear reason why, besides maybe when there's a lot going on.

All things considered, this is one of my favourite ludum dare games that I've seen.
It's very fun, and what it lacks in polish it more than makes up for in actual enjoyability.
The ball controls were actually very smooth, collision detection was actually more forgiving than I expected, and the music, I personally thought, was almost perfect for the game.
Given that it was made in 48 Hours, I'd say that this game is amazing.
If you wanted to make a sequel and spend tons of extra time to polish it until it shines, (such as increasing the number of power ups, increasing the length of the game, touching up the particles, etc.) then I'd love to play that too. And probably also love to compliment you again as well.

Good Job, all around. Keep it up. ^^

Aww wow thanks for the compliments!

The collision is a bit odd, definitely. Most of the time it's forgiving, but some times it can be evil too. In the sequel, I'd definitely want to make it perfect. Also I plan on adding many new power-ups, enemies, and even boss fights, haha!

Thanks again! :D
