A 6 hour game that can be viewed as the prequel to my game-Hairball
Please review
This game was a side project that I've been working on for a whopping 6 hours. It turned out good for the time period it was made in.

Move the ball with your mouse
Dodge the stomping Hairpillars
Survive for almost 3 and a half minutes.

Have fun, and might I suggest Medium or Low quality?
Report any glitches an bugs, please.

(Hairball coming soon)

It's OK

For a simple, quick game, this turned out all right. I like how the graphical style matches that of Hairball, that was a good idea. The way the hairpillars 'jiggle' before dropping is a nice touch. The gameplay is pretty fun; personally I haven't seen any other avoiders quite like it. Reminds me a bit of Sonic 1: Final Zone.

There is a bug in that the endgame screen says "submit it if you like", but there is no obvious way to do so. Also, it says "Final Score: " but no score is there.

I would have liked certain things to be a lot more obvious. For instance, the 'next' button is all but invisible, the start-finish progress bar is hard to see, let alone read, and I would really have appreciated some feedback when being hurt. This could be as simple as having the pillars stop moving downwards when they hit the ball, and flashing the health counter red.

Turn this from a six-hour game into a seven-hour game and I think it would make a worthy prequel to Hairball :)

Not bad for 6 hours of work!

Not a bad game. It could use music or some sort of sound effects and for 6 hours worth of work, it was very well done. I didn't think it was too hard either, like some reviewers have stated. I reached 5213 before I let myself die. If it had sound I would have kept going.

Nice Job!

Hi-Score posting doesn't work?

I got 1858 or something like that.
Pretty hard I must admit.
However, amazingly addicting.

Only problem is that the Hi-Score posting doesn't seem to work...or is it just me?

meh could be better ALot better

the pillars do fall kinda fast but it's still fun lol the music is good well anyway i liked make another one that's not as difficult because that's what "the people" want


it was awsome game but the ball was too slow
and the rocks were to fast but great game =D
