Everybody's childhood dream is to have a hoverboard.

Tried it by myself, which probably isn't as much fun :)

Nice art, doesn't seem like there's an end state. Arrows should probably clip to screen edge so you have a better idea where you are if you're off screen.

fun gameplay, but a game end, and a points system could have made some big differences.
its quite cool though, that you can catch the ball again after you have thrown it. :)

The art style is splendid! A very clear mechanism, and PvP game is always exciting, good job!

This looks so cool. I hope this goes further, such as adding stage hazards and power-ups. The graphics look very polished, and the gameplay was nice.

This is another game I come across so far with multi-player functionality. And they have SO MUCH POTENTIAL as cool party games!

overall idea was great however there were some design flaws like how the camera wasn't following the player instead it was following the ball making it hard to navigate through the vast field. I quite enjoyed the gameplay though even though the second player wasn't working for me. Great artstyle! with a little more polish this game will be hella fun! it has potential nice entry!

You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. 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.
