The game can go vertical...
in either windowed mode or on a vertical monitor! just stretch the window to achieve this. (vertical works very well for the game) :)
ALL FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED!
Thank you, not only for your patience, but also for all the help I've received from players and the indie game dev community!
Retro Space Ball is currently in EARLY ACCESS.
This means that it is not a finished product and that it's subject to change.
Games can take a long time to make.
Thank you for your patience! :)

Get the orb to the top!
The player has a cyan shield that can be taken by enemies and their shots.
The orb has an energy level that is depleted by enemy shots and increased by player shots. If the orb runs out of energy, it dies, and so does the player. (a blinking red-orange orb has low energy, a blue orb has high energy)
If the orb falls to the bottom of the level, the player will die.
magenta =spread shot (15 seconds)
green = bullets get faster (15 seconds)
yellow = larger bullets (15 seconds)
orange = impact on ball increases (15 seconds)
red = fire rate increase (15 seconds)
blue = shield +1
THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING!! :) :) :)
ALL feedback is appreciated!
