Thanks heaps for the front page it's appreciated.

Also I put a skip button on the intro.

Zwingo is my latest game - for the MaxGames game competition (ending soon). Big thanks to Deseo for making the music especially for this game :) Visit Deseo's site please:

Swing ('zwing') your ball around using the mouse, smashing all the black balls of screen. Your aim is to protect the white ball in the centre. If the white ball leaves the boundary, it's game over. Every 10 levels you'll face a boss that you have to continually hit until he runs out of health and goes off screen.

As you hit each ball out you gain experience points (xp). The harder you hit the ball, the more xp you collect. At the end of each level you can spend this xp on one or more of four upgrades - size, speed, white ball size and boundary area. You'll need to upgrade to face faster, bigger balls and make it all the way past level 50 to pass the game.

The overall score is calculated as the total xp you collected throughout the game. Thanks to Armorbot for the highscore table. Also, the game has a save feature that lets you come back and play from the same level you left another time.

It was entertaining despite my nasal drip. For this reason I give it 3.5*.

I guess the title is simply a variant of the word "swing". I wasn't that impressed by this at first. It just seemed like a game where you randomly hit black balls to get ahead. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find out that it really was a very nicely done game. I get the most pleasure from when I'm able to have so much freedom to hit the black balls. I like the little ping noises they make.

In a game where there isn't a lot of detail, it's the minor stuff that makes it. I thought the music was decent and set the tone pretty well. It's great to see how something so simple can make you have so much fun. It's fun to watch the white ball as it flies around even if you can't control it well. A very nice game.

pretty cool

the controls were a bit weird


You should make a ricochet bonus - making a black ball bounce into another, making the 2nd one go off the screen! make the bonus like an extra 75 exp or something for each consecutive bounce!

...anyway, good game!

Pretty coool...

But you do NOT know how wrong it sounds to "Swing your ball around and protect the white balls from the black balls."

Anyways,I found this pretty fun. It gets boring after a while though.
