I recently bought this game and have found myself playing it all throughout school, but there are some things which I would like to address. Do you know if the devs are on TA?

Anything you'd like to share with the rest of the class?

Well... like, why don't you give us your impressions of the game? What are the things you want to address? Maybe these things can help others here make a purchasing decision...

Alright well I'm new at this stuff, but I'll try to make it quick and easy.

3D Spinball (Curvball)

THE GOOD
-Both the Tilt and Touch options are very easy to use
-If on Tilt mode, the game will calibrate every time you make a serve.
-Online Leaderboard and one for just your iPod
-Even if you haven't played the game before, its very easy to learn.
-Adding spin isn't as difficult as you would think
-Two different themes (Aqua and Classic)
-Not too difficult but not too easy.
-If you close the game it will auto-save

THE BAD
-If the ball is close to your paddle it still makes contact
-Getting accuracy bonus is way too easy (I think for the same reason as above).
-The two different themes are different sizes! (I don't know if they did it on purpose, but I think that's unfair)

Even though there's not that many, the bad things about this game are worth telling the devs. I'll let you know if I come across anything else.

i hate that you can't spin serve like you can in the original flash game. that's my mine gripe with the game.

Does anyone think this game is better than 3d vector ball?

imo, since the latest update it brought it up to playing at just about the level as spinball. both are good games, having both I do prefer spinball to vectorball because of the smoother paddle movement. it's close to call which one is better I could easily see one player favoring one over the other, so neither are a bad option.
