Neat concept. Is that original? I haven't seen it before. Is it just you writing code? What'd you write it in etc?

I'm kind of cheating, I'm using a program that is made to be easier, but yes, I did the code and the art. I've currently got a guy doing the music.

I prototyped a game last year that was eerily similar (bounce off stuff, tap to slow down) except mine sucked 'cause it had moving platforms and was basically impossible Cool You pulled it off much better! Grin

Actually this does have moving platforms occasionally, but most of them move up and down, and sideways ones move very slowly.

By the way, you should probably pick a different name. To me, "Brick Ball" is a bit plain and I instantly think it's simply a Breakout clone.

I've been thinking that too, but I can't decide on something I think is as good .

This looks fantastic! But definitely consider changing the name. Brick Ball sounds definitely like Breakout, and this looks much more original and fun than that Smile

All too often, art is simply the loss of practicality.

What is the goal of the game?

It's a soccer ball bouncing forever in the air.

Soccer AirBounce
Football Bounce
Bounce Off Everything

I'm sure we can all come up with something better...

This looks really interesting. I agree with others on here though that the Title needs to be changed.
I quite like the concept of the game, looks like some pretty unique. Smile
