AWESOME!!!!! I remember playing "Falling Balls" in the early days of the app store. It's very similar to this game and I'm happy to finally see a better and more fleshed out version of it! This is pure nostalgy for me

Interesting, simple and good looking game. I'll buy it day one.

As an option i would like to see: touch left/right half of the screen
to move instead of tapping small buttons (if not aready implemented
in the release). Good luck !

Edit:
Just watched the trailer again and it seems to have precise controls !
Important to fail or enter the hall of fame.

Looks fun, but not 8-bit. Not even a little bit. Has anyone on this forum ever played a real 8-bit game?

If you called it "16-bit Ninja", that I'd believe. Maybe.

8bit ninja has precise controls, and a much bigger touch area for moving. The move buttons will fade out during game.
The game also features a tilt control method.
