A couple of flaws

This is nearly a great game. However, there are two annoying things (developer: I hope you change these!): First, the cells don't bounce off the sides at realistic angles. One would expect the angles to resemble those of billiard balls, but in this game the bounch angle more closely resembles the angle impact (it bounces straight back from where it came, which looks really odd and affects gameplay immensely). Second, when two cells of the same color collide, they're supposed to merge -- but very often they don't.

Otherwise it's a very nice game. Probably would be five stars if these issues are resolved.

Too repetitive

I'm not particularly a fan of the mechanic that everything must bounce once before merging, but that's this game. The only way it changes at all over time is the addition of more balls on higher levels and random rock formations to get in the way, so it gets old quick. Like all billiards style games, nothing even comes close to the real thing.

Great Concept, Flawed Game

Been trying hard to love it but I give up … weird bounce angles, invisible cells, ridiculously crowded at higher levels … just not fun past level five or so. Too bad really because the concept is great.
