Great game, fits the theme really well. At first I played avoiding reading all the instructions and that didn't went very well haha. The second time even understanding the mechanics I could only get to level 4 because I found it to hard to hit all the canons simultaneously, maybe the hitbox of the cannon could be larger and the timer of the deactivated status can grown just a little bit as the player go through the levels.
Also, I maybe got something wrong, but I mostly repelled and almost never attracted balls, was this made on purpose? Like, attracting balls is for the player to get hit right? Just played a third time, it seems that I can only hit cannons more easily when I'm really at their front waiting for them to shoot, but after level4 it's very hard to go from one to another quickly, but maybe that's just me =)
Great art, good music, good game =)

Great game! I really hope you'll continue working on this. The art excluding the player and the bullets is great and the music while simple fit the game and was not intrusive and easy listen too. Sound effects where great! Only negative thing about the game was that the controls felt a bit sluggish, they could use some work.

Interesting concept for a game, I felt kind of weird on the direction of movement sometimes but that may be my imagination. I just don't understand what the gears have to do with anything? Odd design choice, but ok

Cool liked the idea of inverted controls but felt something was missing.

Awesome! Took a few levels for the gameplay to really pick up, but it got pretty fun and crazy. I love how you worked the credits into the level :)

I felt like the cannons were too hard to hit because the bullets were too hard to control. If the field was stronger yet still had the same range maybe that would be better, for example attract a bullet till its close then switch polarities to shoot it out at a high speed. Or perhaps if your were able to store 1-3 bullets and shoot them by changing polarities. Maybe even have the 4th bullet hurt you so you have to get rid of the bullet quickly.

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.
