    Red Ball: The Game - lectvs - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    NOTE: Due to Flash being dumb and only accepting .mp3s, and mp3s being dumb and adding gaps at the beginning, THE MUSIC LOOPS HAVE GAPS. I'm sorry. I can't fix it now.

    Controls are in game.
    Health is indicated by expressions. Keep an eye on your player's face!

    The goal of the game is to acquire all 4 evolutions, while surviving hordes of zombies.

    The main attack of the game is "rush." Hold down click to charge up the attack, then release to rush toward the cursor.

    Thanks for playing!

    Really enjoyed the mechanics! Very cool. I thought the graphics were lacking a bit.

    Pretty cool concept. Got to the stage with legs on the third try - love the animation!

    The control scheme is pretty cool once you get used to it, a little cumbersome at first.

    Wasn't sure how to use the spiky ball.

    Interesting game, pretty fun! I like how you use the facial expressions to convey damage/health, it works great. The random evolutions also add to the replay value. I did run into one bug where it would claim I evolved the spike ball, but wouldn't actually get the evolution. >_<

    The controls were nice and simple, easy to pick up. It wasn't always easy to tell your health, but the idea was nice.

    Loved the retro sounds though. Nice job!

    Really good! Good way of showing health and nice touch on the evolutions. The animations look really good and there are a lot of small things that make the feeling of impact good. Nice job!

    This game is solid! Nice attack mechanics. I loved how the music evolves too.

    The idea was pretty neat, though I'm not sure what the wings were supposed to do. I also felt like gaining the laser made the game harder because I could no longer line up my ramming. The laser would knock the enemies to the side.

    It's fun but I encountered a game-breaking bug (I cannot move my character and it was fixed in the top-left corner) at the boss fight.

    I like the atmosphere a lot.

    Very nice. I was blown away once I saw the ball roll sideways. I was not expecting that. I wish I was better at the game.

    This one is a real gem! Great fun but I thought it actually got harder once I grew legs. Finding games with key+mouse control systems a bit awkward on my laptop so need to replay this once I get back to my desktop PC. One of my top 10 of this LD so far.
