Cool, such a unique game, i wonder how did you come up with this idea :D Well done
This game is unique. The concept is something I've never seen and the controls are tight. A little difficult in the beginning but when you really have full control of the situation, I can see this game being rewarding. The 3D to 2D is jarring and my partner and I played the game together and her reaction is totally polar opposite of mine but we both enjoyed it. Looking forward to see what other updates you have. Thanks for making the game!
Thanks ya'll for all the positive feedback! I've got to finish my current large-project before returning to any of these game-jam concepts, but maybe I will comeback and flesh this out later!
I'm really happy to hear all you folks are playing and liking the game!
Really cool idea. Switching to 3D to run is a bit disorienting but it gives the game a unique vibe.
Really interesting game! I liked the concept and it felt like a new approach to pinball. The game was quite difficult and I felt like the ball didn't flip that far, which made it easier for the ball to fall down in the lava instead. The game was a lot of fun as soon as you got the hang of it. Overall a fun and challenging game, keep up the good work :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
a little unweildy could do with a turn around button
Having just been on a virtual pinball kick, I had to try this. The game feel pales in comparison to real tables(which made me miserable) but the concept is worthy. I wish Mr. Flipper's turning was manually controlled.
Made a video
Full marks for the fun and originality of the concept. Would love to see this as a full game, but needs much better controls.
This game reminds me of Parappa the rapper
This does demand some practice, as the controls are a bit unforgiving, and I sometimes wished it felt a bit more smooth and pinball-y (the ball doesn't keep enough momentum to ride all the way through even the short tracks). Mostly this is down too a need for polish, however, and I can't blame a jam game for feeling unpolished.
I can't help but be amused at the frantic nature of this pinball flipper constantly chasing after the ball, and the graphics fit this feeling perfectly.
The sound effects are great. The music gets a little irritating after listening a lot.
Overall it's an excellent jam game and very charming.
A fun idea, but way too difficult at the start. I spent most of my time having to sit in the lava trying to get the ball out.
what an excellent game jam entry! It was really hard for me but I still played for a good long while. I would love to see this become a full game; there's so much possibility in the mechanics.
Pretty unbalanced, but the concept's very original and interesting.
