This is such a cool idea. It's a pinball game but done in an adventure style with a whole world to explore. The last time I played something like this, it was Sonic Spinball and that was still just vertical boards like an actual pinball game.

I know there are a lot of fans of pinball games on Switch and other consoles. I urge you to go give this a try.

So far I've been really enjoying the exploration and the art direction.

Anyone else playing this?

Yeah, I got a code from NWR before the game's release, and Karen and I just devoured the game. We couldn't get enough of the art, the characters, the humorous dialogue. Karen especially appreciated that you can't die in it.

I was surprised by the difficulty of some puzzles: the game doesn't always make clear what's important to pay attention to. Just a warning for you guys out there. The dyes for your ball aren't just cosmetic.

Our save file is at 100% completion after, I dunno, probably over a dozen hours of playtime? Definitely recommended.

I've been hovering over the purchase button for this for a couple days. Perhaps I'll give it a go.

This game looks really fun. The physics seem a bit off in the videos, though. Are they consistent? Does it feel like pinball?

Absolutely! A couple spots the game ensures you make it through a motion so things aren't broken but that doesn't hurt things and it's only when traveling intentionally long distances.


You won't be disappointed!

Cutesy, lush pinball Metroidvania sounds like it would be quirky enough to be right up my alley, so I ordered a copy just now. Looking forward to trying it out!

Pinball and Metroidvanias are two of my favorite things, so this is definitely happening... after Hollow Knight.

This looks dang fun (and that music! Woo!) so I will have to keep an eye on any sales and/or get some actual income to give it a go. Thanks for the heads up!
