Synopsis:  Just a game, and it's not Pong.  Try not to lose the ball, or get hit by the bad ones.  Not quite a bullethell, but maybe more like a difficult scoring mechanic.

Repository:  If you're interested in the code, it's pretty bad.  I almost made the repo public so that people can learn from my mistakes, but I realize I don't really have permission to do that.

Very interesting variation on the original. The addition of the harmful balls makes the game more complex and therefore interesting. The visuals are simple,so it's still Pong in that sense.

I'd like to invite this game to our contest, the Game Development World Championship! We have a special category for jam games.

Hey, thanks for feedback!

I appreciate the invitation, and thanks for bringing attention to the competition.  However, I can't seem to get the submission to work-- the website hangs and doesn't submit, no matter how many times I try.

I'm sorry to hear that. I don't work on the website, so unfortunately I can only send a message forward on this problem. So it happens when submitting a game and not on the user registration form you fill first?

Correct.  I filled out the game submission page multiple times, but it never goes through.  It just hangs, then times out.

Well, I have sent an email about this, so we'll have to wait and see.

Have you found success with it? I got a reply from the admin-side and they said that submissions have worked as they should and they can't detect any errors. Have you tried different browsers?
