Thanks for the front Page!

Glad everyone is enjoying the game.

Use the arrow keys left and right, or A and D to roll your ball.
Use the mouse to aim and shoot your rope.
Hold the mouse button down to hold on, and let go to let yourself fly!
Roll, swing and hurl yourself to the yellow exit avoiding the Red traps.
If your time runs out on a level you can press ESC and skip it.

Good luck.

Great game

The long jump on insane is damn near impossible, though. Also, I'd recommend a restart button, as well. It sucks when you get absolutely stuck on a level, then need to re-open the game. Overall, very creative game. I also ranked number 1 on hard difficuly! :D Try to beat my score of 22,000+ points!

Was pretty good.

Was pretty fun, just a little slow paced and all that, try to make the ball more responsive. Music would've been good.

I also think it's disgusting you put the sponsor in the game title, really bad practice. Either way, nice shot.

There is an old version of this game on NG already, so we couldn't just call it Swinging Ball as we wanted, that's why it is "Gimme5games-Swinging Ball". Didn't mean to be disgusting!

awesome game

while like most people said it went by slowly, i stuck with it and made it to the last level on insane, but gave up after dieing about 100 times, i think it would be a good idea to implement some sort of checkpoint system, because when i get almost allll the way to the end on the last level of the hardest difficulty and have to go alll the way back to the beginning, well it makes me want to drink bleach and set fire to myself. but overall a seriously good game and i had fun playing until it just got too ridiculous.

okay i guess

well i have to say... i love the fact that there was no annoying background music.. that was a huge plus.. but the game lacked fun... it was sooooo slow and there was a point where staring at the screen actually made me sick with the ball going.. everything spinning around... and those circles in the background... but it was a good shot

I cannot use words to describe my anger

The idea was great but the execution was some of the worst I've seen. First, it was way too slow! The response of the "ball" when pressing one way or another is terrible; did you forget to mention this whole game is on an oil slick? The levels aren't all the fluid either. There's to much stop and go action. Also, some of the levels are just annoying. None of it is that hard but putting the hardest part at the very end of a level is just frustrating.
