Hard

Took me some time but I wasn't gonna quit till I beat the game.. and yes why 0/undefined? was that intentional? Is there some random invisiball?

well now

A game that is incredibly difficult, reliant solely on luck, and gives a payout of a level that can't be beaten. The concept is great, but the end result is less than satisfying.

not impossible

great game i espesially like the last level and how hen u beat that the enimies hit says 0/undefined.

needs work

This isn't a bad game, really. The music is pretty nice, but an off button would be appreciated. Not everyone wants to listen to a fairly short loop over and over.

EDIT: Just found that pressing "m" mutes it. It would have been nice if that was stated somewhere.

One of the biggest problems that I had with this game was the circles exploding. The fact that the little shots they release when you hit one only go vertically and horizontally makes the game hard, especially in the levels where there are not that many circles to begin with. It would be better, I think, if they released in a splash effect, or add diagonal releases, maybe a full circle release when you shoot one.

But yes, it took me about 5 minutes to get past the first level. This is why I think you either need to upgrade the release that happens when you shoot a circle, or let the player take multiple shots.

A pause button would also have been nice, also a menu.

Something to consider is implementing a high scores feature. Arcade games like these become much more fun if you can compete against other people. Maybe add in a free play mode where you get unlimited shots, and you try to get a high score within a time limit?

The graphic design was pretty basic. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can tend to give the game an amateurish feel. It can make the player think that you didn't really put that much work into the game, considering that it is a very simple, basic game.

The animation is good. Everything moves smoothly and fluidly.

One problem I did have, though, is when I try to shoot the circles, I had to be pretty precise. I sometimes had to take at least three shots to pop one of them, when it appeared that the cursor was on it.

***********************

Overall, it's a fun little game to play for a few minutes. But, there are quite a few games similar to this one, so I suggest mixing it up a bit. Do something to set this game apart from all the other ones out there. You could add a story in somehow, or change/update the graphics, whatever. Your game is lacking a certain X-factor, which it needs to become a unique and great game.

Hard

The reason I play chain-reaction games is because I hope they will be difficult. This is a great game all around.
