Mag Ball

by MTO - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Well I didn't get enough time to quite finish the game part of it, but I did accomplish my goal of creating something cool with WebGL.

Have this very bright ball tossing simulator!

The look is oddly surreal, and almost "2.5d" - it feels like the ball rotates to look at you.

It's nice too bad it isn't finished

Feels nice in a tiny, tiny browser window ;)
I bet if performance was better this could really become a fun game.

Sorry, my Computer sucks I can't make it work correctly. Too bad I was interested..

Yeah I definitely should have added some GFX options to help people run it. A small chrome window is the best option since other browsers are still behind when it comes to webgl.

neat demo, keep workin on it :)

For a tech demo it's actually pretty fun - you just need some bad guys in there!

Wacky concept, pretty interesting.

Apr 29, 2013 @ 3:34pm

Look interesting but I'm afraid it was unplayable on my computer, even in a very small Chrome window. I could see the ball was there though.

Fun little demo, would like to see a 3D Bomberman-style game made out of this.

More of a mood piece than a game, but with a really nice feel to it. This could really be the start of something cool

So your approach was minimalistic gameplay? Nicely done!


Love the graphics.

Quite interesting, and not bad looking at all.

Very hard to see and control, but I love where you are going with this one. That shader for the stars is crazy!

I love that sky for some reason. Nice little entry.

Runs REALLY badly on my native 1920x1080 resolution even though I have a beastly gaming laptop which runs most things at max settings perfectly, had to make a pretty damn small window. Didn't seem like a game at all, and the kinda thing you might knock up in an hour to test a physics engine.

Would have been interesting to play a game around this.

Pretty Cool Demo. Too bad you didn't get to make a game out of it.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
