Super Hyper Ball 2 by Neonchimp (Looking for beta testers!)

Hi good people of Touch Arcade!
After the release of Spiral Splatter, I have been working a new game, the sequel to Super Hyper Ball 2!

Here is first the Trailer:


If you haven't played the first game, Super Hyper Ball 2 is hyperactive cocktail between classic ball games like pinball, breakout and pong, fit in a retro style.

So what is new in this title?

- Completely new playfield with a lot more pinball elements, like flippers, a rails, more bonus triggers and a ball lock mechanism.
- Much more dynamic gameplay in Story Mode. You can now choose which letter you want to collect first.
- 2 new game modes: Endless Bricks & Boss Mode.
- Unlockable Balls. (each ball has its own physics/speed etc)
- Lots of new powerups.
- You can now upgrade your powerups!

And lots more!

You can read a bit more information in the announcement post.

I'm currently looking for people that want to beta test game and give me some feedback on the gameplay.
If you are interested, you can sign up for the beta @ www.neonchimp.com/beta

Here are a couple of gifs that showcase the game and the new playfield:

This game looks great. Love the attention to detail and boss battles in a game of pinball. Nice

Beta invites have been send out!

The beta invites have been sent out!
If you are interested in the testing the game but haven't signed up yet, you can still do so at the following link: http://www.neonchimp.com/beta/

Some notes for the beta:

If you have an older device, you can try turning off recording in the settings to improve the performance of the game.
You can also change the paddle sensitivity in the settings.
There will be 7 bosses in the final game, but there are only 4 available in the beta at this point.
Sound Effects are still a WIP. Some events currently have no sound effects.
Ads & IAP's are disabled in the beta.
Everything else should be fully working and playable!

I'm still tweaking all the numbers, so if you feel like the balls are going to fast or slow, the powerups cost too much coins, or progression is too slow, then let me know!

Time to crack some skulls!

You've got two best selling points to hit my interest on this very intriguing looking game, Pinball and Brick Breaker.
Holy brick, look at this skull boss (i guess) shooting lasers out of his eyes. Beautiful stuff.

*first cough*
Now i'm simply wondering why i can't remember any of your original game. After a redownload i know again why i quit so fast. The default (incredibly) little ball went too hard on my eyes (iphone 5s), and the proportion to the playfield (well, everything) didn't fit and felt wrong. Only imho.

I'm very glad to see a bigger ball AND flippers. Involving pinball skills, and more active gameplay overall, makes the exact huge difference to possibly head over to your Beta site.

*second cough*
You hopefully have a new music theme, right?

Yeah, the original game was ok, but it had a lot of flaws. I thought I could do better, so I made a new one!
I agree that the playfield was a bit out of proportion if I look back on it. The new playfield is visually more coherent, and the gameplay is a lot more dynamic which makes the game more fun.

I re-used a lot of the sounds/music from the original in the beta, so I could get it out and get some feedback on the new design/gameplay. But I plan on updating the sound effects as well. (including a new music theme!)

I'm playing.

Holy SH*T this game is fun and intense. Way way way way way wway way way better than the first. I LOVE how you have the controls. It adds to the intensity. Having to move your fingers quickly to the flipper then quickly back down to the paddle.

Seriously. Amazing job dev. I'm going back to the game now. I'll try to find something negative to say as I play more I promise. Lol

I can't believe how much you've expanded on the first game. Seriously well done. People really are going to love his game.

Thank you for letting me be part of this beta. I really love your work. I haven't had any crashes or lag yet. I just updated my OS thismorning too. I'm running iOS 9.2.2

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

Yeah, the game is a lot more intense, it can get even more crazy when you have both the mirror paddle, and the speedup powerup activated.

This looks crazy slick. The beta sign up link isn't currently loading on my browser at the moment. But I'll try again in a bit.
