I like the part where you shoot the apple (which looks like a tomato ;) Music and a better choice of colours would have made this entry better.

maybe work on a smoother movement, but it was fun :)

Neat. A little too based on luck, maybe...

Solid title! Gameplay is quite punchy, I like that. The increasingly difficult puzzles are also quite cool.

Love the combo system. Is it actually possible to one-shot all the apples in every level?

Cool idea. Liked the challenge. Surprised myself a few times by getting more than I thought I would. Found the movement a little hard to predict, it was a bit fast. I was guessing more than I was deducing when to shoot.

Lots of levels. Very enjoyable

It was a fair experience, music would've done a thing or to make the game more interesting.

The choppyness of the movement is quite odd though, might I recommend that you use something like y=sin(a); 0<=a<PI for vertical bouncing in the future? (:

I didn't think I'd enjoy the game after seeing the first level, but I finished it, and enjoyed it (1430). I especially enjoyed rapid firing the apples. Nice job!

@BarrensZeppelin sorry for weird ball bouncing movement
I always lost when calculating bouncing,angle,radians,etc...
can you suggest any reading on this topic?

It's already pretty satisfying to play this, but put a some post-compo time into it (focus on getting the motion of the apples to feel "weighty") and you could have a very fun game.

Nice, I liked it! It's a bit easy, usually spamming is good enough to clear the level

Not as easy as it seems at first :D But great fun!

Colourful style! The game works well, but the levels are far too easy; rapid fire gets you through every level instantly.

There is potential, but much too easy. Just fixing the bouncing angles (like a billiard game) could make this an excellent challenge.

I like the hand drawn style. There's more depth to this game than at first appears - well done.

Nice and likeable game, had good gameplay. I really liked the way you increased the difficulty. Never hard enough to be frustrating, but always a nice challenge.

Really well designed levels, good fun!

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.
