UPDATE 27/04 - V0.2
- Added a "How To Play" page with instructions for the gameplay
- Game now starts with 7 lives instead of 5
- More medals!
- Added a button with a link to the Newgrounds Stencyl Jam 2015 page where you can find all the entries for this year's jam! Also here - http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/stencyljam2015

===================================================

CONTROLS: Click and hold on a splitter, pull back and let go to fire it off. Aim for the moving goals to gain points and keep a combo streak to get a multiplier and increase your high score!

I wanted to keep the concept as simple as possible because it was my first time making a game with Stencyl. There were other features that I thought could be attributed to the game but I figured I would see how this one goes and then do some kind of a sequel if people like it.

Enjoy the game and please leave feedback so I can make improvements.

Interesting simple idea, and fairly well implemented too. Gfx and presentation is on the simpler side, but serves its purpose. One of the better entries I've tried in the Jam (so far). Good luck!

Very cool. I have a question: do you get combo bonuses for scoring more than one ball at a time, or is there a penalty for collecting too many on the screen? Because without either of these things, it's easy enough to shoot one ball at a time and avoid losing lives. Do we have a reason to go for huge multi-shots, other than scoring points faster? You can build your multiplier slowly with one ball at a time.

There is some sort of failure condition. I've had the game end suddenly when I still have 4 lives. Is it because too many ball are on the screen?

Maybe a little more of a tutorial would help, because the gameplay is fun and the visual effects are great.

Hey thanks for your feedback, it's greatly appreciated.

Good question about the combo bonus for more than one splitter at a time because that was something I did consider however at this current time I haven't been able to get it working so it may become a future edition or possibly added as a feature if I make a sequel. It terms of collecting too many on screen, technically there is a penalty because as you may have noticed, splitters begin to disappear after a few seconds if you don't try to score them. Leave it too long and they will in fact destroy themselves thus costing you a life. Ultimately the huge multi-shot as you called it is useful in times of desperation when you see a splitter that is about to be destroyed which of course means your combo is eliminated.

Regarding your second question, that may be to do with the fact that the splitters are being destroyed as they are being left too long. If several splitters are about to be destroyed within a similar time then that would explain why you may have lost several lives seemingly at once.

You are right about a tutorial, I am currently creating a page for the game on how to play so hopefully that will help! In the meantime I will add brief instructions to the description for the game.

Thanks again!

It seems the 5k medal is bugged. I currently have the 10k, 20k, 40k and 80k ones, but the 5k remains locked despite having popped up as achieved in the game. Overall though, great game. Horribly addicting.

Thanks for your feedback, I have recently been able to update the 5K medal thanks to NG Support so that should be working now. Make sure you get back in there to get a high score!
