Momentum

by WiggleWorm513 - Jam Entry

Do your best to escape the darkness in Momentum.

**Note on Controls:**

The controls are gravity based. You don't move the ball, you change the gravity. So if you hit up, you only change the gravity to pull the ball up; if you hit down, you change the gravity to pull the ball down.

The key to movement is to time the key hits so that the combination of gravity (up, down, left, right) moves the ball the way you want. once you get the hang of it, we found it to be quite fun.

I recommend you edit your entry and say it's "Web (Unity)" instead of "Windows". I can assure you more people will try it!

Nice gfx and idea, but controls are too hard to handle!
If you don't get is right the first time you end up 1 minute trying to get the ball through the hole on the last segment.

I have to admit, I didn't get past the first hole (and I tried at least ten times...). The controls are very hard to handle, which killed all the fun for me.
But the graphics are very nice. :)

Thanks for the great feedback.

I added some notes about the controls. Please give it another try with that information and let me know if that helps or not.

Changing the direction of gravity to move is an interesting concept.

On the second level, if you only press up and down (or left and right) you'll end up slightly off-centre at the end and miss the hole, making the controls feel a bit loose.

Having reached the hole, the knockback upon hitting the slanted edges makes it near impossible to get through unless you arrive perfectly.

Neat idea, but it's sooo hard.

Interesting control scheme, it would be nice to see some longer levels!

I was barely able to past the first level. I got very frustrated on the second and left the game. Maybe once you have the hang of the controls it gets better, but I couldn't understand them at all.

The graphics are astounding the music is cool. However, on the second level there was no music at all. I guess it is a bug.

I tried many times but I couldn't get past the first obstacle. The graphics and title screen seem well polished. I'll leave Audio blank as I don't think I should rate royalty free music as part of your game.
