This abstract game game involves using a wrecking ball to block ninja stars from chopping your string. Or something like that! xD

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare #28!
Please rate it! http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=11407
This is fixed up a bit from the compo. Lots of small bugs are fixed, it's a little bit easier, and there are medals! ;D

(Also, the main soundtrack is to the left)

- Use the arrow (or WASD) keys to direct the wrecking ball.
- Do not let stars touch the rope! You lose health.
- Run the wrecking ball into stars to destroy them.
- Collect power-ups and upgrades!

- Made it a little bit more challenging
- The timer accounts for lag
- Q toggles particles/quality


Good thing you made the timer account for lag, since there's a lot of lag on my computer. Should've given an option to turn off particle effects, though.

Really nice and simple idea for a game.

Zanzlanz responds:

Good idea about particles options! I'm sure that would help a lot.
I just added a quality option for you. ;)
Press Q to toggle particles/quality.

Gotta say this was pretty fun! It was quite hard at the start but once you got the hang of it it got easier... until the screen became a clusterfuck of ninja-stars xD But I managed to beat it 510 sec! (Yay me :3)

Well done. Keep up the good work!

Hey DeathBeat! :D
The difficulty is pretty interesting actually, it almost turns the game into a strategy game... which if/when I start making the sequel, I'd definitely play around with that concept to make it more interesting.
Good score! Thanks!

Really fun! I thank you Zanzlanz for this awesome game, and it is not THAT hard :P
If you move bigger distances only to get the powerups, you are fine, even if the stars swarm the screen

Zanzlanz responds:

Whoo! Welcome! And thanks for playing and reviewing! :D

That technique may be safe, but it take much longer to beat the game that way :)

I Like it, a perfect challenge. A bit for the mental part of the day as well as reflexes. Good work here m8.

Zanzlanz responds:

Awesome description, I never thought of it that way. Thank you!

Really simple, but super fun. I'd love to see you make an even better sequel. Great game!
