This was pretty fun, mostly when I realized there were combos

A Tapper clone!

The concept is a good one, however marred by the controls. Also, the game later loads lots of atoms on the conveyors without you having any chance to clear them.

It would be neat if the conveyors would actually speed up, the game does feel sluggish although it technically isn't.

Really enjoyed this. Much harder than it looks on the surface. Also really enjoyed the writeup on the blog. I def recall a game in the 80s on the BBC Micro that involved conveyors and reversing them, etc, forget what it's called. Anyway, nice one.

A bit sluggish but fun combo system!

cool game. sadly the balancing is a bit off.. when you drop an atom it would be best to clear out all the other atoms on the belts... when i played i lost 3 lives right after another, because there where 3 atoms falling at the same time

Cool game - felt a lot like Tapper, but the combo thing made it more complex. Took a while to figure out how it worked - maybe some more instructions would help. Nice work!

Fun game! although I felt the "atom" thing doesn't help to make this a "tiny" world. It's fun and loved the retro feel on the graphics and sound fx. Good entry overall. Congratz.

Fun little graphics and sounds. Would have liked to see some other level of complexity. I feel like the strategy is just "grab the balls, try to make combos if you can". Maybe there was something I was missing. Great work on coming up with a new concept though.

Fun lil game. You gave a new look to match games. luved the idea. felt the controls could be better.

The controls let this down :(

Would have been cool if there were combos other than "get as many of these in a row as you can" -- like red, blue, red, blue = 20 points

Cool game and idea. The core challenge is good, but maybe you can make it more fun by adding twists as you progress.
