Use skill, strategy, and precision to to protect your center ball and use the points you earn to upgrade your speed, size, and defenses.

Yes. Tomorrow.

Screenshots don't make sense. Imagine looking at the puzzle game Labyrinth with only screenshots. Doesn't work.

Also, if you are interested in the game, start thinking up some catch phrases for the game. Like how Skee Ball has "Balls Out Fun", we should get one too, right?

When we get closer to release, we will hold a contest on the best catchphrase and give the user a free copy of the game for their efforts.

Slogan that popped into my head right away: "Don't Touch My Ball(s)" xP I will probably think of more, but that floated into my head first :P
