Love the idea, but in reality this does not work as it is at present. I found it extremely difficult to launch the ball,once launched, the ball seems mostly to a hit a pin and bounce back down the launch chute. I realize this is a game of skill but swiping that ball is damn near impossible for me. Let me get my finger on the ball please.........

Thanks for your message! I recognize the launching bug and we're gonna take care of it very soon.

The first update to Ballywoo is now available!

Hopefully the delay time which appeared between launch & relaunch is now bearable.

I got this recently, I remember my grandparents had a really ancient bagatelle game, this is very nostalgic for me... It's a nicely made little game, I can't think of any improvements that need to be made, but I'd love it if there was any other designs or extra features added in at some point.

Thanks for your nice words! It's also nice to hear that the game brings good, old memories.

We will surely add some new features and probably new game boards in the near future.

I will pick this up just to try it. How about some 80's pinball games?


Edit: I have been playing this and really enjoy it.

Nice game

Great that you like the game!

We have indeed been thinking about releasing new pinball machines after this first one.

Great ! This is a great classic game and I would love to see some more like this or from the 80's or earlier

Newer pinball machines had too many ramps, plastic, lights etc IMO.

I hope sales go well ! Nice game.
