Polar Rollout: Line-drawing physics puzzler [one-man project]

Hey everyone,

I'm reaching the final stages of development for my first game Polar Rollout. The goal of the game is simple - guide the character to the portal by drawing trails of ice. Master new physics-based mechanics that are introduced as the game progresses.

If interested you can also follow my development here @Supaflyindie

Thanks!

Whoa lot of action, you put a lot of effort into it! Nicely done will try for sure, how much time did you spend to create it ?

Thank you! I've been working on it part-time for a couple years, I had to teach myself how to design the graphics and code everything so took longer than expected

Just noticed that supafly had a thread for this! Really pumped for this release. We have both beta tested each other's games and I can say that this one is extremely polished, especially for a first time entry from a one man dev team. Really hope it gets a feature because it deserves it. Was not expecting the amount of content and detail when I first played. Make sure and check this one out. Dev is an awesome guy as well.

This looks interesting, I'll keep an eye out for its release! Does it have Game Center?
I played some line games before and will try to find the forums, maybe it has comments that are useful for you.

Thanks bud! I actually played sliding sam a while back and loved it. Almost got to the very end but got stuck lol. Also interesting that we both ended up with an "arctic" theme, I guess ice just makes sense when we think of sliding on a path.

The comments have also been really helpful, hoping to improve upon an frustrations players have had in the past with these types of games.

Here's a promo banner as well as animation for the game. I have since improved the graphics and will be posting more of my progress soon. Stay tuned!
