It's alright, it's a nice concept at least. However, the "new ball" spawning is very much luck-based, as it can spawn in ways so that it's impossible to dodge it in time. Also it's very much all the same, no progression or anything :/ Overall, nice entry and I think with a little more love it could be much better.

Nice little fun game, did have a play where one of the balls spawned touching the house :/

596 was my best score, more than 5 balls are impossible for me to handle :P
The mechanics are good, you can make it faster to scale with difficulty so that it gets harder even faster, would be more dynamic.

The gameplay is a good concept, spawning could be fixed up a little though. Simple game, good one.

My best score was 536. Great game, but maybe a bit too simple.

This was pretty fun. I do agree, the ball can spawn in unfair ways, but i do like the difficulty picking up with time. the powerups were unique too. thanks for the game!

I got to about 522 on my best game. It was actually surprisingly more fun than I was actually expecting. The addition of the powerups also was a nice touch.

Nice idea but with better graphics would have been better :)
