I played a couple of games as I'm always on the look out for same device multiplayer games, and it's not bad but to be honest I'd have preferred it if I were flicking marbles instead of pens, maybe a separate app or a different mode?

@ooooomonkey - Thanks for trying it out. Flicking marbles might probably be a different game (given the name of this game ).

Or maybe a pen and a marble for each team. Now you've got me thinking.

Anyways, I hope you can give it a few more tries. Hitting the edge of a pen to send it spinning into the center of another pen is quite satisfying !

I played a few matches and I like it. I am going to upgrade to get rid of the ads.

I like the pen theme and it makes the game unique, I would suggest adding some different colors or styles for the pens just for variety.

You're right, there is a bit of same-ness to each round and I am thinking of ways to add some variation both in terms of visuals (like you suggested, different pen colors) and gameplay (different obstacles, or pens of varying weights and shapes)

That would be cool, different sized/weight pens,
How about having the points from playing games used to unlock new pen skins so each team can choose his/her pen skin?

That is a possibility, though personally I'm not a huge fan of unlocking stuff. So if I do add that, it'll probably be available immediately to all players.

But in general I do want to have some kind of cumulative measure of a players performance. I'm actually looking at the ratings systems used in chess/tennis and am trying to see if I can come up with a global ranking system for pen fights.
