A "toss-the-ball" game using a gesture-type input method of "throwing" using the mouse. Comes complete with high... er, low score-board (low since the scoring is based on number of strokes needed to complete each level/course). Also saves access to each level on the main menu screen as you defeat them.

Some of you will likely end up not being able to pass the first level... not trying to drum up hype, or using some kind of reverse psychology here... I just know it will probably happen. All I can say is that it seems to take a certain kind of person to tackle this game well, and be able to throw with either a modicum of confidence or a fair level of relaxation. I mean... c'mon... it's just a game...

Edit: Got around the cross-domain access problems... now that this game has probably gotten most of the attention it was going to receive on this site anyway. Sorry to anyone who actually completed it but didn't get a chance to see their name on the top-scores board... I know it was tough, and you should have been recognized.

Also... some people have contacted me about the fact that once you drop your ball out-of-bounds you are "stuck". Just go try and pick up the ball. You will get an "Out of bounds" message, and will then be able to try again...

Like the concept but...

The ball doesn't go the way you throw it, at the fourth level it touched the green base but nothing happened. BTW, with enough speed you can pass through the walls.

Very nice!

I was able to complete the 20 levels!
very nice, but with some bugs on the "launch" lines, cause i was getting out of them and i was inside!
My_sql server error too in the subbmit score!
Regardless, a very addictive game!

Ehh boundries could be better

Well i liked the game myself, but ( idk if it was my computer or what) everytime i tried to throw the ball it would go out of bounds right before i hit the line ( i tested this. ) Good game though.

Hmmm... I seem to remember testing it as well... A LOT. And as far as I can see, the finger-tip of the cursor gets nearly all the way out of the boundary before the out of bounds strikes.

loved it

loved the game, only was little to hard for me :p

smokinjoeevil responds:

That seems to be the phrase of the day for this game... that it was hard. I have to admit it can take some getting used to. Me being the creator I should have taken a step back from it and solicited more feedback before I called it "done"... because it seems that what I didn't have too much trouble with only ended up that way because I knew exactly what to expect...

Thanks for the review...
