    Fun game. Felt complete but could improve in terms of design and innovation.

    Nice job on the game - I really liked the design, and the video made it clear how to start a game even when no one else was there.

    I had a few performance issues - the browser was slow to load as far as getting into the game, and I had to refresh a few times and eventually reset the game in order to join on the other window.

    There is a big lag when shooting/hitting the baloons. When using box2d with socket io you should run a sync physics loop on the server and only render on the client - this would make the game more responsive. Also don't like the stretched-out graphics - so probably some improvements on the design side would be welcomed ;]

    Usable only in firefox, not very complete. cool concept though.

    the ballon runs so different. and the sync animation is not so smoothly. thanks for deploying with node.js

  • contestant

    It works, page design is good - but the game itself feels a bit cumbersome. Impressive work given the time frame though

    This really needs a pitch video. Attempts to join existing games always fail for me.

    No idea what was going on. Waited forever for someone to join, and then I was able to move up and down, but there were no balloons to shoot.

      Currently works only in FireFox. Did you try it in firefox? and also two players are needed to start the game.
