Close Call!

So. I almost threw this game out after the initial prototype because I just was not having fun. However, I was encouraged to not give up on it right away, and after a few adjustments, it began to become more fun. The object of the game is just to stay alive as long as possible. The mouse controls the direction of the gravity fields on the board, which push both the Blue and Red balls around. Don't let them touch! You have three lives though, so don't be too hard on yourself. Also, if you can get the Blue ball close to the Reds without actually hitting them, you'll activate the close call. Mastering the close call is the key to a high score.
Good luck!

Close Call!

i love it when that happens.. the entire slow motion movement makes it a lot more fun, the background arrows are a nice little addition, but the downside was that the ball doesn't move as swiftly as i'd prefer...


loved the "close call" matrix style stops, adds a real sense of accomplishment as you slide in-between the mass of dots. Very addictive and a brilliant use of a simple idea. We are very lucky to spot games like this in the new arrival section.
