Ricochet Theory - minimalistic physics fun

Hi guys,

I am happy to present to you Ricochet Theory, a minimalistic puzzle game. The game is simple with challenging gameplay. I think I've done a better job with the difficulty scale compared to my last big game, Salt & Pepper.

There aren't any randomness added such as timers or hidden objectives like before, however each of the 80 levels have multiple solutions. The game will likely be released mid-August for $0.99.

Sorry if the preview video isn't M. Night Shyamalan quality, I'm going back to my roots so I'm trying to do everything myself again.

I can see that, Okay is a great game however this game has more of a fixed starting point rather than the free flowing style of Okay. In Ricochet Theory, the platforms are at the player's control rather than the ball's path. I have a more asymmetric style with things as well, I feel OCD to not be symmetric all the time. :/

Anyway, my lower menu was totally inspired by Okay but that developer has a style that I admire.

The inverse gameplay to Okay seems like a cool idea, cant wait to see it when it comes out!
