I was only able to put in about 7 hours, but I think it turned out pretty well. Have fun!
This was a very well polished entry! Everything from the graphics, to audio, to the gameplay, all fit nicely together. I liked that the ball would only react when going down and not when going up, but at the same time this stopped me being able to create a wall if I noticed the ball flying to the side (which could have been intentional?)
Overall though, this is the game I've played the most thus far, and really enjoyed it. Good job!
This game is very pleasing from it's visual and audio presentation. As I'm come to expect from your work.
Fits the theme perfectly and also seems excellent as a score attack exercise.
Unfortunately there are two thing which really frustrated me, while playing:
I felt like the trajectory wasn't always what I was expecting and at times random, which made me give up on trying to steer the projectile and instead just placing Vs all over the place.
I got furious(!) about clicking outside the window all the time. <- a fullscreen mode (even if everything but the intended window size would be colored black) would've helped A LOT.
All in all a great jam game, with a bit of noticeable jank, which surely could've been ironed out, with just a bit more time. Great work!
@elZach I originally though that the bounce angle was wrong too, but I created a trail (which is still visible in the game) and you can see that it's accurate. It's only slightly "off" because there's a slight upward boost for bounces to make the game easier. In case you want to verify it, the math should result in the reflection of the ball velocity over the normal of the platform with a slight upward boost in velocity.
As for clicking off the screen, I made the black bars on the side for that purpose. I could see it being a visual annoyance for some though, so I didn't make that area super big. It's 70 pixels or something.
