Default Cup O Balls (in progress)

This is my new physics game that is similar to Salt & Pepper but requires precision rather than random luck.

Cool concept, and nice minimalistic design.

I am stuck on level 4 though. I keep getting the "try again" message even though all balls are in - or a couple of times soon after they start falling, without giving you a chance to get them home!

Ah level 4 has that platform that is through the cup. Are you sure that you aren't touching the side of the platform?

Ah, I think I misunderstood the concept. Are you not allowed to touch the platforms? I thought the goal was just getting the balls in but you could touch the platforms in between - provided you did not lose any balls.

After playing with this for quite a bit, my man grief lies with the difficulty tracing the lines. The input recognition is surprisingly good, don't get me wrong, I was in fact surprised at how precise it was. But, on a phone at least, I found the line is too thin and that creates the main hurdle when playing.

I understand the gameplay element here would come from analysing and determining where to draw the lines, and make those interact with the different elements in the screen to achieve the final goal of reaching the cup.

In my case however it seems the gameplay was more with making sure the lines where drawn properly. I knew where and how I wanted them, I just was not certain if I could trace them properly.

I still like this concept quite a bit, and I think the game is cool. If the smartphone tech had adopted "pens" as the main input element this would be awesome. As it stands though, in my case, I think I should stick to playing this one on tablets, with a wider trace and less difficulty drawing lines.

Despite the above, I found this a solid game. Good learning curve, solid experience, nice pacing introducing new elements and fun. Thumbs up!

As a last comment, maybe suggest a bit more color - the platforms for example - and make sure it is very obvious to the player they are not allowed to touch some elements in the map.
