Interesting. Not sure how the game works but it looks and sounds good

Very clean look, pretty hard though. Beat the game in 499. My mouse finger hurts now ;_;
Very interesting level design too, well done!

(My guess is that the theme is that you only get one button?)

Interesting mechanic, very well presented (graphics and audio). Only two ill points: How does this game relate to the theme and: some of the later levels are Evil with a capital e ;)

Gets hard really quickly. I can't really keep up with the clicks. Cool concept though.

I LOVE you for having an audio on/off Button. After approximately 17 critiques and plenty that tried to destroy my speakers. Just. So many hugs to you.

As for the game. I completely misunderstood the "click to change direction" and initially thought the game was bugged. Once I realised I had to click more times it worked great though, and is really polished and well made :)

Awesome game idea... very good result!

Good audio. Interesting mechanic and clean an minimalistic representation. I like the different types of interaction with the environment (bouncy walls, slowing/inverting surfaces). It's also pretty hard :) I liked it.

Awesome game. Great level design. Had a lot of fun playing.

Great game.
I especially like the work on sound. The ones when collisions occurred with bumpers are just perfect.
As people have said before, well done on the level design.
(I scored a terrible 746).

Such clever design and nice aesthetics.

well-done on the single-control mechanic (click to steer ball in different direction); I like the varying environmental changes: reverse the track, bouncy walls. It was very challenging at first until one gets the handle of this single-control gameplay.

Dec 16, 2013 @ 5:12pm

It got tough pretty fast. I think having a few more simpler levels to ease into the mechanic might help.

The amount of space devoted to the current player and play area also seemed a little small. Seeing the next and previous levels doesn't add much when what I really want is to understand the level I'm on.

Excellent funny little game. I Liked the idea and had fun completing the levels. However, I had to read the comments to understand that you have in fact to press the mousse button continuously to play (according to the instructions, I thought that the ball would flow towards the mouse).

And the second levels is a nightmare compared to the others!

Anyway, I had lot of fun playing this

Very hard, but I like it. It runs fine in Chrome, by the way. I would recommend adding some sort of difficulty setting that changes the speed.

Dec 16, 2013 @ 6:22pm

Wow, this is really hard, but very unique, very interesting.

I like the concept - but difficulty ramps up too high too fast.

Fantastic job! My favorite that I've played thus far.

Great little game - as others have said, the difficulty ramps up fast, but it's a rewarding little experience. Pretty too.

Great game, challenging and minimalistic graphics. Also good audio. :)

Sanguine says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 1:57pm

Nice minimalistic visuals and music, the difficulty curve is a bit steep though.

Dec 17, 2013 @ 6:21pm

Great audio and interesting take on the theme! Super difficult though.

This is very good; simple mechanic well polished into a great game - excellent!

Dec 17, 2013 @ 7:32pm

The last one is epic.. great game =D

Dec 17, 2013 @ 7:46pm

Nice one button game :) its getting harder and harder over time, very well done. The effect also looks great.

Really simple and fun mechanic and a great look! Good job!

Nice concept for the theme.
But because of it made on Construct2, it crashes my OS at the fifth level.

Xaychru04 says ...
Dec 18, 2013 @ 4:13pm

Awesome game! I like how the music changes with the gameplay, the concept is quite original, though I don't see how it relates to the theme, but the level design is really clever, the levels are difficult, but sooo fun to play! :D

AtomicVikings says ...
Dec 18, 2013 @ 4:14pm

great game! a one button game! just like ours. this game has a really nice mood, with the deep soundtrack. the tones when you bounce off walls. great work!

Sheepolution says ...
Dec 18, 2013 @ 4:41pm

Really nice concept! And worked out greatly! The shaking screen is perfect, and the music fits!

Really solid game, awesome idea and well executed!

Wow I've never played a game like that, it blew my mind after I learned how to play. Very polished and good design.

Nice job! I would have appreciated some easy stages at the beginning, to learn about mechanic and tactics, but it's ok. Just hard...

javifugitivo says ...

Its hard! But very interesting!

Very interesting game and good use of the theme in a very literal way.

Dec 21, 2013 @ 5:00pm

Excellent !! Really cool idea and execution, and quite challenging. :) I just had difficulties to understand what to do in the beginning, i thought it was a bug. But after finding out, it was really a great entry !

JohnnySix says ...

This would've been cool for the minimalism theme too. Nice crisp gfx and the simplest yet most challenging gameplay for a while! :)

van noctar says ...
Dec 22, 2013 @ 4:40pm

Very good game! Interesting concept! Graphics could be better but the gameplay is very cool :D

Dec 22, 2013 @ 6:35pm

Nice game it is so challenging ! Great work!

I love the simple art style and its 3D effect. Main mechanic is strangely fun and the little twists are nice. Small request for 1-button game: add keyboard support (like space key) for tired finger.

zatyka says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 12:52am

Very nice! It took me a few tries to understand what to do, but after I got it, I had quite a bit of fun. Great difficulty progression, level design, and visual. One of my favorites.

Didn't like the controls, but other than that, good game

Great job on the idea, very good use of a theme. I find this game very innovative and I enjoyed it a lot. Well done!

Dec 28, 2013 @ 3:59pm

This is really neat. It didn't take that long to figure out. Were you able to generate those puzzle shapes from possible paths of the ball? I imagine you could.

HybridMind says ...
Dec 28, 2013 @ 8:08pm

Very tricky. Played for quite awhile. I like the attention to design you put into being able to start playing right from the menu and seeing the other levels along the progression.

Husky says ...
Dec 29, 2013 @ 6:43am

Wow! It's really challenging and fun !
And it's fit the theme well, good job :D

The level design in this game is awesome.
The way you did this "one button game"... is simply amazing!

Great job! :)

Dec 29, 2013 @ 3:27pm

Very cool concept!! The graphics are clean and abstract, perfectly crafted for this kind of puzzle!

Dec 29, 2013 @ 4:10pm

awesome idea! really well done. maybe some easier levels in the beginning ;) it was really challenging

Cool idea. Good take on the theme. I really love the mechanics.

It took me awhile to know how to play the game.

Jeremias says ...
Jan 1, 2014 @ 9:53pm

Nice concept, was fun to play but then it got too hard for me :D I like the visuals and the atmosphere you created with the background sounds and the minimalistic look!

havana24 says ...

Woah, so hard! ahah
But it's cool, fun and well made!

Jan 2, 2014 @ 3:27pm

A level design finely done, very good work.

Jan 3, 2014 @ 11:36am

Very good concept! The games gets pretty hard from the beginning though. There could be easier levels (with more space) from the start until the player gets better with the mechanic.

Erkberg says ...
Jan 3, 2014 @ 12:15pm

A very interesting idea, nicely executed, extremely hard though.

Xanjos says ...
Jan 3, 2014 @ 1:21pm

Difficult but in a really good way. The concept was pretty cool and the level design was great.

Very frustrating. Didn't finish. A warning before a new mechanic would have helped greatly.
