Trippy, movement was a bit odd at first, but the music and sounds fit great.

Great stuff. Stunning visuals and music. I picked up on the mechanic but I'm stuck on the 4th level. I'll definitely come back to this later!

I got stuck on the 3rd level, but other than that this game has a good concept. The controls are so-so, and sometimes I get stuck without knowing why (invisible walls maybe?)

@ yagairudi / anyone:

There are indeed "invisible walls", but they are only invisible on one side of the screen. You have to cross reference the screens to figure out how to navigate around them.

If you get stuck on the third level, try using a bit of momentum.

Wow, this game is absolutely incredible! Congratulations!

Solid puzzle game. I think sometimes, like in level 3, it is hard to tell where exactly the ball needs to be placed. That may just be part of the difficulty tho! either way it was quite enjoyable. :)

Quite interesting indeed ... Sfx & music are cool too .. But quite disorienting :)

Interesting mechanical and I like this mood - strange and sometime oppressive. Music adds to sensation of freedom. Well done ++

I've never seen anything like this before. It's fun but challenging, good game!

That was realy cool! Quit a stubborn ball though :)

Great visual and sound, I like this kind of mood. I realy cant figure out the rules of motion, but after a while, I did managed to finish it twice. Keep up the good work !

The graphics and music are amazing!! The gameplay and concept are interesting. It was weird to understand the movement at first but eventually got the hang of it!

Interesting! Why does it say "Trial Version"?

interesting mechanic, but it is extremely hard to move the ball the proper way.

Aug 26, 2014 @ 11:42pm

Nice music and style in general. Some of the levels, like the invisible cube I just got past them by sheer luck. It's really hard!

One of the best, love the style. Idea is pretty neat, getting hard quickly. Great entry :)

Great job, it's a good idea and very fun to play but I had some problem to understand how works the physic

I'm just going to tell you that I put 5 stars on innovation because that was the most innovative game I've rated so far. Great job!

i like a lot the song.

This feels VERY different! It's so beautiful, I love the minimalism! <3 The controls are super strange, but after a while I got used to it and then it feels natural. Music is fucking great! Great job overall! D:

The level where the left side is completely invisible was strange, I ended up just randomly rotating 'til I got it .. lol

Wow really great soundtrack!

Aug 30, 2014 @ 3:01pm

The mood of this one is great. The puzzle solving, graphics and music just work so well together. Later levels were to difficult for me but I still had fun trying to get the ball in position.

igoramendola says ...
Aug 30, 2014 @ 3:49pm

Interesting concept. Sometimes my brain couldn't understand the logic and relation between both sides hehehe... but I passed doing randomly movements. And the music sounds very nice.

Really like the puzzle. Well done. The mechanics are simple, but the puzzles are quite smart.

Really nice use of shaders and the audio was spot on. Very difficult. It's hard to grasp how the small ball's physics work. But, overall great job.

jprogman says ...

This is a strange game, but not a bad thing at all! Although I do myself annoyed with objects obstructing the view of the ball. The physics is not perfect as the ball kept getting stuck when reaching up slopes. Maybe I need to build speed to reach up those slopes? Very nice game overall!

This is like some weird cross between Bounden and Antichamber and I love how weird it feels. The minimilist level was a bit much. Great simple aesthetic and fun exploratory puzzle. Well done!

This idea has a ton of potential, but I feel like the actual level design resulted in some awkward flailing around. If you could clean that up and make the solutions to the levels a bit more elegant, I feel like this has the potential to be a full release.

Cool concept. Took me a bit to get used to looking at both screens to figure it out but was fun :)

Fun puzzle game. Well done. I included it in part 23 of my Ludum Dare 30 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

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.
