It's important for kids to know how to safely use and enjoy digital technologies. Help your kid be their own first line of defense. Protect them from dangers, but don't be afraid to pass them the ball once in a while.

The message was easy to understant

but the game itself wasn't much fun.

The problem that can plague a lot of these games..

Is that they choose a too complicated message, or over-complicate a very simple one. You have done neither. The message is clear, simple and understandable immediately. By showing the child how to do things, they learn to do them for themselves and after a while they do not need you. Throwing things is a simple but effective metaphor for this.
All in all, well done to you.

Good message

The message itself I like: You can't be on top of your kids all the time so you need to teach them how to defend themselves instead of over protecting.

Something I noticed is that when you do something else and the game pauses, every time you click play to continue you throw the ball, and it's a little bit of a pain to have to go and get it back or get another one, since the character moves a little slow. Also I noticed a bit of a lag when clicking to throw the ball so I'd have to click like 2 or 3 times for the ball to react and it makes it a little bit frustrating especially with the green enemies that zig zag a lot.

So all in all I liked the game, the only pointers would be making the character faster or the ball throwing more responsive. It is not a long game so the music doesn't get tiring but the game advanced a bit slowly. I liked the changes on the background too.

Nice work! I enjoy your games :)
