This is just really bad

The tutorial didn't make much sense to me and just playing the game was so confusing and I got really bored within a minute of playing it.!

The presentation was very good, although in a pinball game good physics and speed are king, and these both need some work.

Hey! Thanks for using my music for the intro. I had no idea, and I was just looking through my audio submissions when I noticed. I really appreciate it! :D

However, I did notice that the audio is a bit lossy and compressed sounding.. And when I listened to my audio submission, it wasn't that way, so I just wanted to make sure you were aware of that.

If you'd like to work with me in the future, please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks a bunch! :D

No problem, Hayden. Yes, I compressed it in order to reduce filesize. Your original music is great and it's a shame I had to do that, but I had no choice. I do that to almost every music I put in my games or else I'd have 10MB games. I will definitely contact you if I need help in making music and also refer you to people in need of music.

Thank YOU too for the great song.

Hey! I got the highest score of all submitters! At least, at the time of this post. I am the disgruntled looking avatar.

This game has some bugs, yes, but it's a fun game that delivered as much as was expected from a simple flash game. Sometimes, however, the ball would go through the bumpers and cost me either a tree or a ball. This didn't happen often, but enough to where it cost me the game. If that alone were fixed, it would be amazingly better. Then there's the issue of it lagging a little for no reason at some points (my computer works fine with other, more intense games, so it'd have to be the game itself), but this didn't really affect anything. But overall, it's a fun game that delivered what it said it would-- some simple pinball with a bit of "Magik".

josh-tamugaia responds:

Hey, Thanks for your input! Your points are noted.

I like that you definitely tried with this one. Things to fix would be the Physics, as they are not very Pinball like, There is lag issues, (though this could be my computers fault not yours) that get i the way of me predicting the balls trajectory and decent.
Like most pinball games going into the side slots is OH so very easy to do. This causes many uncontrollable ball loss.
Lastly most pinball games are not so quiet, sound effects should be the most dominant thing you hear, not overpowering mind you but enough that you really get the oomph of doing something.

josh-tamugaia responds:

Yes, the gameplay lagged on my old CPU but didn't lag on the new one. And I agree with all you said, and what the others said as well. The game engine is new and built from scratch (not Box2D) and in future, would be enhanced to solve known issues. Thanks a lot.
