Pick up the ball and fling it into the basket. Get as many points in 10 seconds in each of the 9 levels. You can only pick that ball up when it's in the shaded area. Good luck!

This time I tried to use Construct instead of AS3. The events got messy very quick but its very easy to use and enjoyable to prototype in. Which makes it great for Ludum Dares.

The game should run best in Chrome (But also works on my Android phone, veryyy slowly).

Left mouse Button: Pick up the ball
Right mouse button: Toggle sound
Middle mouse button: Disable music

Hope you enjoy the game!

Fun game, the controls were a bit wonky but very enjoyable nonetheless! Great job! :)

Great take on skeeball and other skill shot games. The physics were satisfying, but I felt that sometimes I didn't have enough space to launch the ball properly.

That was pretty entertaining :) I wish you could reset the ball, so it wont take so long time for him to come back

It's a nice little game. I particularly like the graphics, and the music is quite catchy too.

Fun game. :)

One thing though: my score disappears when I reach more than 9 points. ^^ Guess it's a font issue ... I'm on Linux and my score number looks like some fallback standard font.

Oh and the background music seems to be played twice simultaneously when you play a second round w/o reloading the page.

Very nice game. I scored 10 points on my first try, but after that it went downhill lol. I really enjoyed it. A high score would have been awesome.

Very good game!

I like how the game started with a traditional basketball hoop setup that one would expect, then evolved into wackier and wackier arrangements. Very clean art, nice job!

Greatly done, man. The graphics are really high-quality. +getting those physics must have been a real challenge :)

Thanks for all the kind words and feedback guys!

@sirtetris actually missed that one, thanks for the heads up

@comrad_gremlin that was actually pretty easy to setup in construct, without that I wouldn't have been able to make it in a weekend :)

A nice addition to physics puzzles!

I played this on Android, and like you said, it was pretty slow. I actually liked it once I got the hang of it, and could see playing a version of this after the jam. Nice work.

interesting game, though in one level I apparently through the ball hard enough for it to disappear, then on the later stages there were lots of areas where the ball would easily just get stuck and I had to just wait a while for the countdown to finish. It's an interesting take on a mini golf sort of game.

for a compo it's really impressive. It felt like box2d almost. great work with the physics.

I'd get sfxr/audacity and get some sound involved. a little noise can go a long way for the experience.

nice work and a real creative concept. I like it a lot.

Final score: 7. Sometimes the ball just disappeared when moving the mouse too fast. But it's a nice and simple game anyways.

Fun way to make use of basket ball. Like these simplistic but entertaining games!

Nice work! It is a bit difficult to get the ball in the basket, but it is reasonable level of difficulty. Okay sounds, nice graphics. I feel like the ball falls A BIT slow, making it hard to get off more than one or two shots on most of the levels. Keep it up. 6/10.

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.
