Bounce, is an arcade-style action game in which players have to activate all orange balls in play by knocking into them. Your means of control is a grappling hook, and a few different power-ups to aid you. Avoid the walls.

The game was originally created for the 4th JayisGames.com Game Design Competition (the theme was "Ball Physics"), and released unfinished due to the competition deadline. Since then, the game has been heavily updated to the point where I myself was satisfied with the result. Kongregate.com expressed interest in sponsoring it, and soon a deal was accepted and the game was re-releasesed in it's current state. To the contrary of comments from JiG users, the game has been recieved very well and won the weekly 3rd place at Kongregate (competing against hugely anticipated games such as Fancy Pants 2 and Storm Winds 1.5).

I'm extremely proud to call this my first game, and I hope you enjoy playing it!

Aim with the mouse, click once to shoot grappling hook, and press again to reset/remove the hook. Hook onto balls to gain momentum and manoeuvre around the playing field by springing from ball to ball. Players will be awarded points by activating all balls on the field as quickly as possible (the faster, the more points will be awarded). Lives are lost by hitting the boundary walls or being sucked into a black hole.

Very cool

I liked it. It was very original and well done. Though it was a bit difficult for me to get used to how to control it. Overall great work!

Viza responds:

Yeah, it's certainly not easy to begin playing... That's why my next game is based less on skill, as I was afraid many people would dislike the game simply for being too difficult.
