Glad to hear that Grin but you clearly really haven't read the game description huh? Cranky

yes, you just click and wait for reaction chain on Fate mode. On skill mode, you can click small balls to change their directions (dx or dy one, depends on value). Color has mean here, small ball can only react to big ball with same color. White one can react to any big ball. Big ball can change their color after make a small ball reacted with order: green -> blue -> red.

You forget, this is ra4king you're talking to:

Not that I'm sure it does a lot of good for a OOME, since those tend pop up in random places after you've been leaking memory a while.

As I tried level 20 for maybe the tenth time on Fate mode, the game suddenly froze and it was not possible to get the java error message because of some other bug.

Your Skill mode would be even better if clicking on a moving ball sent it to the closest reacted ball. But right now, it already gives a lot more of a sense of control on your game, which is good.

Thanks both of you!

I'll find time to figure out what happened back there

Maybe I left a time bomb there, as I played 3 times of 20 lvls I didn't get that. It's difficult since I can't find any culprit in bunch of primitive integer and its 2D array. On skill mode I think your suggestion will make the game too easy, but seems nice on new mode Easy Wink

I think this was made as a Flash game first, not sure where I found it though. This 4k remake is a good idea!

If you have some bytes left I would suggest to improve the "feeling of satisfaction" when making balls explode. I think most of this game's interest lie on this stupid "click and watch" thing, it's a bit like when playing with bubble wrap =D At least the first levels should be really easy (and by easy, I mean hundreds of bubbles Tongue), it would also help people unterstand the rules - or at least having fun clicking everywhere.

I guess you could improve the feeling of the game with nicer balls (by giving them a more 3D'y look?), more spectacular explosions (more particles? shock waves?), and why not sound improvements, like a "blowing balloon" sound when balls grow - not sure if it's easily done with procedural sound though ^^

To all who has game froze, please try again this time. Hope no more like that Smiley

worked great for me, loved it
later its like epic space combat explosion... stuff

you gotta reload for a different mode, that sucks
the sounds are cool, little scary at first but later it sounds like fireworks

didnt run into memory error, but I did reload and didnt play more then 5 minutes without reloading

Ok small fix. I'm blaming audio part for memory error. Now the sound is little slow at first time but not later (cached). Please try again, especially you toasten Wink

I'll add a way to go back to the menu when gifted by free time.

For the first time you play a sound, you can do it at startup with volume set to 0. Then first "heard" sound should be fine.

Finished the game on Fate Mode, got no memory crash but the message : "CONGRATS! YOU WIN WITH SCORE 77233". I had to restart level 20 10 or 12 times, about the same number of tries as during my former play that crashed in last january.

I also wanted to suggest you to replace the colored squares of your title, by discs ! But if it becomes unreadable, then just keep the squares.
