Thunder Balls

3
Your rating: None Average: 3 (23 votes)

A physics-based puzzle platformer with an innovative movement mechanic. Two balls stick to everything and are held together with elastic force: keyboard controls launch them off the surfaces they're stuck to. Use momentum and timing to sling your balls to the exit.
(Trust us, over the last three days we've made every possible permutation of whatever joke you're thinking of.)
