Under rating threshold (show) When I accidentally got an extra ball at level 11 on Endurance Mode but I was still able to finish the level, I was happy I survived. But then level 12 came and I discovered that extra balls are carried over to later levels. Needless to say, I died immediately. So why, oh why, do extra balls 1) count for your only life when losing them and 2) carry over to later levels?

Under rating threshold (show) I really don't see why the extra ball cost you a life. This is the first pong/brick braker game I've ever seen doing that and for a good reason. It is stupid and makes the extra ball useless.

Under rating threshold (show) Although this game is 5 years old and the dev probably isn't looking at this ever again, I'll post it for new game devs anyway. In a Breakout-style game, penalizing a player a life for losing an extra-ball is ridiculous.

Under rating threshold (show) I like this game's unique concepts among Breakout-type games, but there's too many design flaws that make the game unenjoyable. Multiball shouldn't make you lose a life for not keeping both balls in play. Mouse control shouldn't be a separate difficulty, and the paddle should keep up with the cursor instead of having a limited speed. The paddle should stop when you release the button and not slide like it's on ice. I'd love the game if the wrinkles were ironed out, but they're not.

Under rating threshold (show) The problem with endurance is, that sometimes you're forced to pick an extra ball, most likely resulting in certain death.

Under rating threshold (show) Just got the impossible badge and heres 'some tips, avoid any red power ups at all cost. Don't get the Nuke looking power up as it will send in two balls and if any fall = game over. Another tip is to make sure your careful when you hit the white glowing power ups epically in the last 5 levels it can cause some chaos and if your going to make it to 15 your going to want to avoid chaos lol anyways good luck!

Under rating threshold (show) The impossible took me years. I got way too good at this arbitrary game. Want to walk the path? Hold the arrow key down in the corners. There are varying degrees of 'Up', learn to bounce the ball first. Target smaller clusters and the lower clusters first. There is no advantage to ever keeping a dropping target in the frame. Hit negative power ups last, less to avoid. Hit all the targets around the blasters before finishing it off. Don't get frustrated if you can't get past the 3rd round, that is the most difficult stretch. First chance to get the power ups, do it, but know that after 2 each it doesn't change anything. Try to knock off the negative power ups first, that way the green ones are there if you mess up. Try to summon the patience of Buddha.

Under rating threshold (show) My only advice is try to keep your eye on the ball and hit it, not caring where it goes. And try to avoid the extra balls power-up, that makes the impossible badge a lot harder.

Under rating threshold (show) There's a mute button? Oh, there we go. Pause first then click. (Why not M or S?) And why no sound effects, just music? I would have preferred sound effects over your choice of music, quite honestly. Nice game, but have you thought to provide mouse support instead of arrow keys? The game has potential, but would just feel better using the mouse rather than the keyboard. Also, why the choice to make the objects that fall look identical to the object you must prevent from falling? Yeah they're smaller, but when a lot is going on, it's difficult to tell which is which. And one more nit-pick (sorry, just trying to provide some constructive criticism) please don't use words like "FAILURE" to indicate game over. You might laugh, but it's really not user-friendly. Seriously. All things considered, it didn't hold my interest very long mostly due to forcing me to use the keyboard. It's a bit frustrating due to the looseness of the controls.

Under rating threshold (show) I used to like this game before I got the impossible badge. Actually the game is pretty fun, aside from the power up that gives you an extra ball. That is just terrible, because it's almost impossible to not lose one if you have two flying around.

Under rating threshold (show) Just earned the Imp. Here are some pro tips: 1. Turn off the chat. 2. Never hold UP. Use it only if ball can't bounce up to orbs left. 3. Never hold RIGHT or LEFT when ball is near end. Rushing at it will only stick it to bat, and if you can''t press UP or stop in the right moment, you are dead. 4. Never bump orbs-bricks. They often do their worst when speeded up. 5. Never pick up Multi-ball. Treat is as an instant death. 6. Don't worry about your bat (especially it's size). If you aren't blind, you should easily get the ball running. 7. Watch out for ball speed. The 2x speed up isn't good, at least if you don't want to get 60x2 points for being extemely stupid. 8. Pause each 3-5 levels and get your fingers back to normal. Level 12 is the hardest I've met, so you might consider [P]ing before it too. It's very advisable to keep yourself out of frustration to beat level 14. That's all I can say. Good luck!
