Looks really polished. However, the ball looks like it moves really slow.

The ball is a lot faster in the real game

When we did the trailer, we had to run it on the simulator to make a hi-res video, however the simulator has no Accelerometer function so we had to code a separate point and click (touch) mechanism to move the ball which isn't in the actual game. The result of what you see in the video is actually mouse clicking, so some of the realistic physics is compromised (how fast the ball move and the bounce feedback when it crashes into an enemy object), maybe in the near future I will film another actual gameplay video to show you guys. Thanks for the support !

So are you saying that the ball moves a lot faster, in that how far you tilt determines the speed? I think the game looks really polished but after watching how slow the ball moves, (even after the explanation) it is hard to tell how well this will work.

Yes how far you tilt the iphone determines how fast it moves, I guess if we have a chance to upload an actual gameplay video (probably later this week or early next week), it will probably speak for itself.
