NaurisAndzans's comments:


Currently the game supports up to 20 online players so I figured the best way to introduce my new title to TouchArcade community is by giving out same amount of promo codes. Ofcourse maximum online player count will be increased if the public will ask loudly enough. Anyway - enjoy.

Wyjf. Big problem I see is you can only drag from the ball so if you get stuck on an edge and can't drag back, you lose.

Well Brawwwn, you never get stuck because you can drag in the opposite direction making it a bit harder to determine the force needed to get to wall and endzone.
This is the strategy part in the game when playing multiplayer modes. Always try to leave the ball in corner or near wall (depending on the location of the endzone), hoping the next round will generate hard wall/endzone combo for your opponent.

I don't get it. Up to 20 online players? What does that mean? That only 20 people can play online at the same time?

Yes fabianb thats completely right. Reason being that I'm using Photon networking free plan that allows up to 20 simultaneous connections, because I did not think that it was smart to invest in networking before game takes off (if takes off). And most of the time the playtime is relevantly short and as game ends connection gets closed and if there is somebody in the matchmaking looking for opponent he will be picked first.

I guess room for improvements - show client count/free slots while searching opp.

Honestly, if you are asking people to pay for the game you should invest as well in multiplayer functionality.

Try to look at this from developers point of view not from consumers. There is absolutely no reason for expansion if there are never over 20 connected users at the same time and Photon gives me ability to check this. If I'll see that 20 CCU are not enough, I'll upgrade to server plan that suits the demand in a heartbeat.

Duly noted Boardumb, sorry for the inconvenience.

Had to redo the preview video because the original was refused by review team due to "App Preview includes content that does not sufficiently reflect the app in use". Got a bit carried away with that one.

Any way I think the new one shows a bit more insight in the gameplay and capabilities ?
