whats the point of the game? Roll the ball around and blow up other balls?

Also, is your video sped up or is the game really that fast? It looks hard to control at that speed.

Indigo Ocho is an action puzzle game. The primary goal is to exit each level and destroy the tower as you go by colliding oppositely charged balls and destroying the maze. Each explosion destroys some piece of the level. There is a catch - it is all too easy to trap yourself by destroying so much of the level that you leave no path to the exit. There's a delicate balance to successfully complete a level. In the end, that balance it what makes this such an addictive game.

You're right - the video was edited to be very fast, it jumps from one fast or exploding clip to another. Perhaps we overdid it. In practice, gameplay is much slower than in this video.
