I fixed it... changed web.html to Web.html with a capital letter.

Nice one.
Shadows would help.
Maybe the "player" ball could move faster, adding a fifth button to stop at once.

Got 69 by catching it in the corner and rolling around slightly to tap it on the wall, fun game c: Like vincentd said, shadows would help with the 3d perception.

Hard to tell where to align the ball, but cool concept! Good job

It's kind of frustratingly hard to figure out where the ball is, and at first I didn't know what I was supposed to do exactly or which ball I controlled.

It kept my attention for a few seconds but after a minute or so, it got a bit confusing to figure out where on the screen the ball was and with no sound or really anything other than the two balls on screen, it gets very bland. Sorry if it's a bit harsh, but the game's a bit simple in my opinion.

Added shadows. Thanks for all the encouraging comments. I had hardly any time to do this so it is quite simple.

I've made it bounce 24 times ! Not bad huh ? ^^. First game I try this LD, it's nice !

To help locating the ball, you could place a shadow underneath it.

I've actually never seen something like this cool idea! Ways to improve would be making custom physics and giving it some difficulty. It'd be cool if this was like a soccer head butting competition! thumbs up for you sir!

A bit too simple, but nice idea. Didn't see the shadow in the web you said you added though, that would make it a lot easier to see the depth.

this game is extremely difficult, and I find a lot of the time if your corner it your points can go up a around 20 in 1 second, maybe making a 2d game would make it easier to see the perspective and where the ball truly is, or add in shadows in the game. other then that its a good idea!!!

Nice concept, though it's a little difficult to judge perspective only by scale. I'd recommend adding a projection shadow to the balls. That would make it easier to see how far back into space the ball is and it would make it easier to read its overall velocity/direction.

As already stated: shadows and a nicer placement of the ball when started. Maybe you should even start with just having a board that you steer and then the ball is something you get at a higher level. Continue with this game and make it super nice!

30 for me.
Simple but could make a very addictive game with a bit more work.

Relatively simple concept, but surprisingly fun for how simple it is. I got a highscore of 15. This game cries out for sound though!

I do think there is something here, but for now it's very basic and I lost interest. It did feel right physics wise which is great! Even just a bouncy sound might have held my interest a bit longer. It is just like bouncing a balloon though so props for that.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

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 ( 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.
