Done for the minimalistic game jam #3: https://itch.io/jam/minimalistic-jam-3

Instructions:

Use space or left mouse button to reach the white balls.
Avoid the red ones.
Keep eating white balls before the inner ring fills or you will die.

Pay attention!
Whenever the skull's outer ring fills up the balls will swap colors.

This would be a nice game for my phone

What an interesting concept! And well-conceived!

For the limited time you had on making this, it turned out pretty nice. Art is clean and simple, music fits the minimalistic style well and the game mechanic is quite fun.

Personally, I would've put the indicator that switches the color of the balls somewhere else instead of on the skull since it's something that affects the whole area and not the skull itself. In the instructions, you forgot to mention that the skull reaches farther by holding down the mouse button or spacebar longer.

Other than that, it's a neat little game jam entry!

Hey MonoFlauta! This is the first time that I saw a game of yours ever in my life.

I didn't score that great, 3,300 something was my best score.

I don't feel like there's too much reason to keep playing past the point that I had gotten to because there really isn't any achievements or a high score table to show off my amazing gaming talents. I really like the strategy of the colors switching. There was a lot of stuff to pay attention to so you didn't lose in such a simple game.

Keep eating white balls before you die? Man, I don't know if this game is for kids, that's for sure. Also, had the perfect amount of fire zombies!

Not much to say. Cool game, nice music and fun.

note: you can make the skull reach the further balls by holding down the mouse click. i'm not a big fan of it.
