Hey Newgrounds!
Here is my newest game, "Close Call". In Close Call, you control a bouncing ball with the arrow keys. Be careful with the up and down keys, because depending on the direction the ball is moving, it can either cause the ball to slow down, or speed up. Left and right move the ball left and right. :D

See if you can beat my highscore of 59. Please review, as I will try to respond to every review.
Thanks a ton!

Good idea.

I found this game to be lukewarm, but first I want to explain why I think it has such potential. First off, the graphics are cute, colorful and simple, just as I like them. Secondly, the music was very nice, quite effective. I also enjoyed the control scheme. Why then am I complaining? Well, I guess I understand the game's instructions pretty well, but here's what I don't get: why doesn't the little ball flash when you hit a wall? If hitting walls is the only way to lose, then it only makes sense to make the little guy flash to signal you're doing poorly. Other than that, I really liked this game. Good job!

Not particlarly great but not bad

The game was ok and the concept was pretty good but there was some weird stuff about the walls. When you hit them the screen moves and it moves your ball out of the walls way. You should change it from that to it being destroyed when it hists the wall and doesnt move on. Besides that you have a good game here.

A good game that needs a little tweaking.In my opinion that is.The controlls were a bit odd but it added to originality.Sound was good as it´s from the portal.
But the box showing your grade was messed up.It was going through all of them.
Maybe add some power ups, like a bous that you can pick up that makes the ball smaller for a few seconds etc.
Good luck!

Great game

This overall was a great idea for a game, most of it is good, a few problems in the game though, First of all you should probobly have a mute button for the music. Second of all the rank thing isnt working, it just goes through all of the screens on it really fast and you cant even read them, might wanna fix that. other than that great job i voted 4.

ToasterDemon responds:

Thanks for the review. I have no idea why it scrolls through. Ill try to fix that, but it works most of the time. Thanks for a good score. :)

OK.. dont like the physics too much, seen the concept before, and nothing too new has been added.

at the end, the rank does not stop scrolling.

ToasterDemon responds:

The ranks work for me. Ill take a look into it though.
