OH Balls! Is the name of this game, its a small, rather addictive and I still haven't completed my own game ;)

The objective of the game is to collect the coins, you need a certain amount of coins on each level to complete it, each time you get a coin a enemy ball is created, there are also random bonuses which add to the total and do not create enemies. And of course you can't touch the enemies cause that means its Game Over! It can get rather addictive and rather annoying when your only 1 point away and you just don't look where your going.

There is also a special which if you press space you will become a really small ball, good for dodging enemies, your special increases when you get the coins.

Here are a few screenshots, please don't let the graphics put you off, I have someone working on them now (I'm terrible with graphics):
General Gameplay
Uh-oh I died ;)
Gameover!

http://yottagames.ba...com/ohballs.zip

Controls:
Up, down, left and right - Move
Space - Special
Enter - Pause

You will need to extract it if you want to save your progress, otherwise once you complete a level it will not update the pyramid!

Thank you for trying, hopefully the graphics don't put you off to much, this is the first WIP and as you may see and I think the engine is pretty much complete.

92% of the population has moved to Rap. If you are one of the 8% that has stuck to rock, put this in your sig. RAP SUCKS!

Thanks for the comments.

The next version should see more enemies and other small objects which will make the game more fun ;)

A online highscore table is also being planned, which means you will play a open ended game to try and get the highscore possible!

hmm, not bad:


  • could do with walls not bouncing but stopping (character)
  • better gfx, but there being worked on
  • the "bonuses" not decreasing your "to go" number.
  • visible score variable

also i would have so sometimes you get 2 gems (used to be coins) - the smaller one giving 2 "to go" points

6/10

Im glad you like the avatar ;) but I didnt expect you to hot link it directly from my site
Its currently stored in my misc folder which I use for temporary stuff so it will probably get erased the next time I do a clean up and that would cause your avatar to disapear (or maybe worse :D)

Ive uploaded it to imageshack for you, please use the following link in your control panel, thanks

Sorry I didnt explain about the gm7 thing, we have old pc's here and gm6 / gm7 games refuse to run on them as the graphics cards do not meet the minimum specifications

The gm6/gm7 games load and get as far as asking if it should switch to 16 or 32 bit mode but then when the selection is made it then complains about drawing surface and other things but GM5.3a games run fine on these old pc's

old pc's + no cash for upgrades = gm sadness :P

Nice game. Simple, yet addictive. 8/10

EDIT: But it would be nice if there was some way to close it without forcing it. :ph34r: 6/10
