Don’t want to read all my boring words? Then here are the links to start playing!

Here’s a google link to download it to your android phone:
Google Play

Or, here’s a link to play it in your browser on itch:

(iOS App Store in progress…)

So I started this game about a year and a half ago. I worked on it diligently for about six months and then released a beta version. I waited for inspiration on how to continue further and make the game ‘better’ but I finally decided to just polish up a bit what was already there, and release it as a free game, without ads. And boy, it feels good to have some closure on it.

Funniest aspect of the development process here is that when the game was first designed, all the GUI was created through OnGUI scripting, and it’s no small GUI either. Nowadays, I design my GUI with the editor and canvas design mode, so it’s really frustrating for me to play this game. I see so many small changes which I’d love to make, but without totally redesigning the game in the new style, I guess we all just have to deal with the current state.

To conclude this post I will say that I feel happy with concluding my efforts on this project, and yet I don’t feel the game has reached its full potential… So, I would be willing to allow the right person who is interested in continuing this project towards completion to become a collaboration partner, but do realize that this would be a project which could take months to a year to truly finalize into a glorious finished product. If you are interested, just send me a direct message with some work of yours and an explanation of why you think you’d be a good help to the project.

Like you said, it does need two things fixed.
Sometimes when I press one of my buttons, the ball stays rolling for like 10 seconds.
Also the camera is clipping…
 
But it is something I haven’t seen before. So, congrats on the originality 😀 .
So right now, you’ve finished more games than I have 😉

Thanks for the support!
 
How do you mean clipping? Because it should be clipping some things and definitely not others… and the button issue is just weird. Don’t know what to tell you on that front…

And the GUI is all code too. Never again will I do that.

When the ball moves the side objects are getting disappeared.

Game play is good.
If you would invest more time in it, I suggest you remake the UI and take a look at color schemes for your level design.
To improve your game play “feel”, have a look at your camera movement.

But I really liked to play your game, keep it up!
