BaLLs v1.00

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
BaLLs (v1.00)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqb3OKirbQ8

What is BaLLs?

Balls is a minigame, where you control a ball and where you have to
collect green balls to get points. But there also other balls (red ones) which
want to kill you. They bounce off the walls and if you come near them, you'll die.

What's the objective of BaLLs?

There is no real objective. It's only a small minigame, where you can have
fun. But you can send me a pm with a screenshot, so I can add you in the
Highscores (If your score is high enough).

How can I tell you my score?

Just do that what I mentioned above: Send me a pm with a screenshot, and
if your score is high enough, I'll add it to the Highscore. The Highscore is
listed here. Only the 5 best will be written on it. But I'm not going to write
down the scores right away.

Why should I add my score here?

You don't have to add your score here, it's just for you and the others to
see, how good you are.

    This is map with a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. Hmm the only one minus is that it`s for single player only :( But there is a lot of fun when playing it. 4/5.

    Here is my full revision: The ranges goes from 0 (wich is the worst) to 5 (wich is the best)


    Triggering/Systems: 5/5
    The game is very funny and and gameplay is great. I have nothing to say bad about this.

    Terrain: 3/5
    Terrain is average, but I think there is no much things to do with it. On This kind of game is very hard to think about a good terrain. My suggestion is to give a imported custom tileset that looks more with a computer-ish tile.

    Theme Implementation/Originality: 5/5
    An unique mini-game. No much to say.

    Bonus Points:
    - Very high replay value +1

    Total Bonus Points: 1


    5+3+5+1 = 14/3 = 4,6 = 5.0 (Since it is over 4,5 it goes to a 5.0)
    Overhall: A 5/5 very funy unique minigame. I suggest adding more power-ups and traps.

    I am increasing your rep. Not for the map - for the trailer/amazing trailer music. I also like the map.

    Balls looks really great and promising, yet I don't have the time at the moment to test Balls... :D

    P.S. The mini-map preview depicts a Ball.

    Alright overall i will give this map a 9/10

    My Suggestions
    #1-I suggest that you have a choice of different colored areas to play on or have more customization to the game.
    #2-Add more special effects to the balls (i know you already have some good ones but continue to add more).
    #3-Improve upon the descriptions as much as possible so people can fully understand the game.

    ~Good Luck

    thanks for your review :D (+rep)
    do you mean, that I should make different areas where you can play, so the terrian varies?
    no idea what I can add. ideas?
    where should I write the description? I want a fast ingame start, so I only wrote a small introduction at the beginning. but after one or two games, you know what to do, don't you?

    #1-Yes make the terrain vary
    #2-I meant like more special abilities for the balls
    #3-Okay thats fine i was thinking like a starting tutorial but that would just waste time for this game since its easy to figure out

    EDIT* Or you could even try making different arenas different sizes that would be cool

    This game is too random. Only if collecting something, something else will appear and it can appear right in your face and kill you...
    2/5.
