Drop

by pinkmonkeyhead - Compo Entry

Drop, a game where you need to lead the balls to its correspondent cube.

Use the mouse buttons to push/pull the tiles and lead the balls.

I didn't have enough will to do any more levels so I did a concept, showing all the different types of cubes and how they could be used.

I really like this game, i found it hard to predict where the balls were traveling mind, but i think thats more to do with my eyes sight and my own ability to see color.

The audio is crisp but its one of those tunes i can only listen to for a short amount of time before i have to mute, Graphically flawless game, A strong entry ^^

Very interesting game sir! Love the perspective changes. Too bad you didn't have time to make actual levels. Well, enjoyed it anyway :)

The music is kinda repetitive, but its a funny and simple game! I love puzzles!

Great entry. Great combination of physics, puzzler, and mind bending. In the later levels I was just pushing and pulling on things to see how it would direct the flow. Definite game I would like to see developed further.

Whoah! This is reallly well-made puzzle!
At first level I thought that there is nothing interesting. I sppoze that this is primitive "leming" game. But when I figure out that there is 3-d dimension I understand that it's cool! Music good too =)

Great idea. Kinda hard to see whats going on on more complicated levels. Camera rotating would be great.

Great audio, graphics and game play! Awesome idea for the theme! really love this game. It'd be great for IOS maybe you should release it for iOS! Great job!

really fun and clean game! it has a lot of potential!
I dno why you added that random height thing when the level is cleared, just made me confused for a second every time :)

Very nice entry, reminds me of Peggle a little bit in the way of trying to gauge where the trajectory of a ball will take it. I love the perspective and the bright colors. Good job!

Love this! The music, the visuals, the mechanic, the personality leading you between the levels (which I think we could have done more with!) all work so well together. One thing- we need a reset button! Also there's a perspective problem- when I want to push in a block all the way, as it moves back it can move out from under the mouse, causing it to stop being moved. A quick fix will remove a lot of the friction here.

Pretty cool idea with the main mechanic, was a little hard to predict but that's part of the game :p good job!

Super fun concept, really innovative! The perspective aspect was especially interesting though for me it didn't really behave as expected. Hope you continue on this neat idea!

Very Good. You only need to add more levels and sell it. :)

This is amazing amount of fun! Well done! I like how even though it's a 2D puzzle based game you still incorporated 3D physics and depth. Even when I couldn't solve a level, I still had fun just making random ball based waterfalls and playing with the physics!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
