Description

Play as a cat! Collect stars! And... It's pinball!

Use [LEFT] and [RIGHT] arrows, or [SPACE] to use the paddles. You can restart the game with [ESC], too!

Oh, and there's no sound! Sorry...

There's not much else to say... It's pinball! I hope you do enjoy it!

    Cute graphics! I included it in my GM48: Collect! compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/yIsOdyc3NkA

    Super cute little pinball game! As far as I could tell there's no way to lose? Made it feel a little like none of my actions mattered, so I ended up playing a quite sloppily haha, but hey, I had fun collecting stars nonetheless!

    That's a really impressive game, especially on the physics side! Are you using the default GMS physics?

    Honestly, it only lacks some special effects, sounds but also some particles / screenshake. Pinball is the best when you feel like lots of things are happening at one, and I feel like that's the only thing really missing here. Other than that it felt really complete.

    The physics seems spot on, feels exactly how I'd expect it to feel with the paddles and the bouncy pieces. All the little interactable parts that do different things, like the keys to unlock the safety nets on the sides are cool. It's a shame there's no sounds, that's pretty much the only thing I think is an issue.

    This is a really fun and challenging pinball game! The artstyle is great too! It's a bit sad that you had not enough time for sound effects. It would had added a lot to the experience. But nonetheless it is a solid pinball experience!

    One of the best/most cohesive artstyles i've seen in a game for this jam! The gameplay is also done well, pretty juicy, with the design of the machine being pretty inventive. That being said, pinball(cat) doesn't quite have the same punch without the sound effects that you'd expect from it. I'd play the crap out of a post jam version with sfx!!!

    I love the cute pixel art style. I do feel it was a little bit lacking maybe in content, I'd love to see this game with some sound effects, some more boards, lights and flashy bits and bobs! But I'm sure that's something that can all be added in time. I think you've got a really great foundation here and I'd love to see it expanded in to something more! :)

    I liked it, I didn't hear any sound at all in the game. I don't know if it was me or not. A HUGE part of pinball is the sound you get out of the machine, and if you made all the sounds be different cat sounds it would have been extra cute.

      Weeeell that's not a bug. I totally ran out of time and sound was literally the next thing I would have added. Thanks!
