Dodge This

by

One shot, two kills.    Dodge This is a minimalist HTML5/web puzzle game with a very simple premise: eliminate all enemies with a single shot. There are, at the moment, 30 levels. Try to achieve the par on each!  

possibly more levels will be added, depending on the player interest.

Game Graphics Level Design
The whole aesthetic of the game is amazing, I love it. I do not know if it is only me, but during the first 15 min I had an issue with controls, I mean that I thought about the dots that give you the direction from where the force cames, and not goes, as in any pool-like game. Apart from the game feels amazing, but there are a few levels that consist so much on just trying, like 06, that even tho I knew what I had to do the psychics did not follow, it felt kinda unfair, and I don't know if that is what you wanted to accomplish. And would be nice a volume editor, since the music is a bit too loud for me, and there is no option to put it to 20 or 50 %, just muting it.
To sum up, I love the color pallet, and the idea, but there are some kinda unfair levels,

thank you for the review!

the control scheme is in this way because of the game also runs on mobile browsers and when the drop zone is near the edges, it's awkward to have it the other way around. but it may be possible to add an option to have "reverse" controls or something.

level unfairness is kind of on purpose, but perhaps i should move these levels where you have to bounce off circles toward the end.

Game Graphics Story/Writing/Dialogue
I like the look of the game. The difficulty seems to progress evenly, though sometimes it's more about rial and error.

About the only thing I didn't care for was the 'vocalization" sound effects...but maybe that's just me.

Mechanics
The game is very simple but fun at the same time, and the puzzles as you advance throught levels get more challenging.

I like the game graphics that are simple, but the don't look ugly.

Great job, I don't have any negative aspect for this game!

Mechanics Tutorial/Learning Curve
I love the minimalism and aesthetic. The game is simple and satisfying. Great job!

One thing I would work on is helping the users a bit with the difficulty. It's hard for people to naturally understand angles of things bouncing off of complex features.

Maybe show transparent lines from past attempts that failed? Tracing how the ball bounced and where it went? This would help the user learn and make small adjustments by having more information on past attempts.

What do you think?

thank you for playing and for taking the time to review it!

indeed, you make a valid point with showing previous trajectory or target. i do plan some improvements and extra levels for it later on this year (if it somehow gathers more traction), i'll make sure to include such feature in the next release.
