I'm working on a new game and I'm pretty far along. I think it still needs some features though and I'm kind of stuck. If you give me valuable feedback, you will ew put in the credits.

Play it Here
Controls are easy: Mouse to rotate.

Thanks!

I'll make the ball's color changeable.
I don't think upgrades will work, but I'll see if I can make power-ups.
I'll try to add some more effects to spice up the background.
And a high score table will be there for sur.

Thanks!

What kind of techno is good? Are there any links you could give me? I'll see about making the paddle customizable too.

And yeah, you'll be in the credits.

Very nice! I like your style dank!

A few suggestions though:

I would agree that having different ball colors would be cool, especially if they started getting all crazy when the music really starts going.

It would help add another dimension to the game if you added powerups. They could do things such as make your bars longer so that it is easier to catch the balls, make your colors change, etc. You can use your creativity here!

Also, is there a way to condense the music a little more? It doesn't take a very long time, but it would be nicer if the levels loaded faster. I am assuming that it is the sound files that are slowing it down some.

A background that changed colors (not too obnoxiously) might mix it up a bit too.

No wonder you like it. Most of the effects are based on some of John's.
I'll try spawning the balls (I call them notes) in different colors according to the music. I'd like to add long notes, but it's my first time around in AS3 so I'm trying not to get too deep.

it is a fun game, ya power-ups will make it better, and some color change such as the others suggested would make it more interesting and addicting, for the power-ups type idea if you add it may i also add that it would make it more fun and interesting if there also like power-downs that make your bars smaller, make you lose points, or make the balls coming faster, and make it so you have to try to avoid the bad ones, maybe make them big with like a skull in the middle since they hurt you, and they do load slower than most people are used to but it still isn't that slow, and if in the final one if you had a help part on the main screen to explain the different power-ups and bad items, this would make it easier to understand, and the bad items would help for the final difficulty's to make it take some real skill, thats about all i can think off
