Could somebody provide some feedback about the flat gameplay mode?
(You don't have to hold the device at about 45 degrees now, it play just e.g. Labyrinth).
What about the new bubble effect?

Thanks in advance!

Truthfully, I was kinda confused about the bubbles. I'm in a dirty industrial setting and all these pretty bubbles floating around. Yes they're pretty, but maybe more fitting for another setting, like a beautiful nature type scene.

These are dirty, oily bubbles.
I just wanted to express that the balls sublime to lightweight bubbles when the player drive them "home".
Okay, I admit these sprites are probably not the best...
What would you suggest instead?

The new method of holding flat seems to be pretty good! I think it's a bit more intuitive than holding at the 45 degree angle. I also agree the bubbles are a little out of place, but not too bad as they don't last very long. Could you make the hole glow or something instead? Fun pick up & play game.

Put the pretty bubbles in another gameplay mode setting. It's not like the sprites are bad, just not fitting to the setting. There is already a lot of nice design elements going on, it really doesn't need more.

I like secondtime's idea of making a glowing hole to show success.

Thanks for sharing your opinions. I will try to find out a better effect then.
Pleased to hear that you like the flat mode, secondtime. I updated 3D Jingle Balls as well meanwhile, and will be submitted shortly (waiting for the Agon guys to release their update.)

Btw, we will release a new game soon. It's a completely new concept, with great graphics, gothic/misterious themes and challenging gameplay - so keep an eye on us.

Hey Carlos,

For my taste, the new tilt setting doesn't work any better than the old. I still think the game needs a calibration option of one sort or another so that it can be played lying down, etc.

Sorry to rain on the parade!
