A game of Catching apples

[Overall, It's okay.]

First of all, thank you for actually having a start button. I've been seeing loads of games recently without start screens, menus, pause buttons, etc.

I don't want to rate this game too harshly as I know nothing about your 'background' (whether this is your first game or not), but there doesn't seem to be a lot of effort put into this. I see no passion.

The most prominent issue is that there is no end. There is no life/misses count nor is there a timer or anything. The game never stops, so what's the point of playing? What exactly is my motivation for collecting these apples? Why are the apples falling? What's the story?

A couple other issues include:
The bowl disappearing off to the right side of the screen (sometimes it never comes back).
An overload of falling apples (as someone mentioned below).

I would love it if the apples would actually have to fall into the bowl rather than them simply having to touch any part of the bowl (just a suggestion).
Also, because this is supposedly an endless catch game, there should be both a current score and a highscore bar.

With all that being said, keep working on it! :D
(No hate, btw)

Just a generic low effort scratch game, not really worth the time.

With so many apples falling down, there's no way you'll going to be able to collect them all. And it doesn't matter anyway, because the game has no ending. No ending means no goal.
I would consider making the falling apples more scarce, and add perhaps different fruit which you should avoid (orange -5 points). But definitely, if this is supposed to be a game, you need a victory/loss condition. Perhaps make it so that you need to collect 25 apples in a minute, or something like that.
