Japan and Linux

6 března 2014

We're pleased to announce two big things! First, Ballpoint Universe will be available in Japanese starting today. Thanks to Unity Games Japan, we have a fully localized Japanese version! We'll be premiering the game at BitSummit this evening. EXCITE

Another big dealio--

For our small but dedicated task force, the Linux version is now available! We tried to get everything working the same as the Windows version, however gamepad controls aren't available on Linux.

Anyways, thanks everyone! We're having a week-long sale in celebration of these two events. Enjoy~~

Linux version unofficially out.

19 února 2014

Testing some things with the Steam interface, so the game is technically downloable for linux, but has no guarantees of working as of yet. We will post a large post sometime later to announce it out officially.
Thanks for your patience.

Tuhle hru jsem si pořídil jen dle screenshotů v domnění, že jde o další "uměleckou" skákačku (které mám rád). A jak jsem se panečku mýlil! V jádru jde o klasickou vesmírnou střílečku viděnou z boku, ve které ovládáte vámi sestavenou intergalaktickou kocábku, bojujete s vlnami nepřátel a postupně dokupujete různá vylepšení. Čím více jste ve vesmírných soubojích lepší, tím více dostáváte pěnez na nákup upgradů. Pokud zrovna neválčíte ve vzdálených galaxiích, procházíte nádherným, ručně kresleným světem a smějete se hláškám roztodivných figurek, které potkáváte. Hru doporučuji hrát na gamepadu (já hrál na Logitechu F310 bez jakéhokoli problému).

Konečný verdikt: Půvabná indie hra s odzbrojující vizuální stránkou.

Plosinovka riznuta kosmickou arkadou s originalni vytvarnou stylizaci. Jen to vybaveni lodi mohlo byt levnejsi, nasyslit prostredky na upgrady da peknou praci. A taky to chce dobrou orientaci v teto hezke krajine.

Ballpoint Universe is a beautiful shmup with guns and melee weapons. Between the stages you'll explore the cities like a platform game: running, jumping and talking with characters that tells you the story. The difficult is just right, but if you want a real challenge, try to clear levels flawlessly. There's also an infinite mode to keep you occupied. For this game, you'll get more than your money's worth. On sale it's an absolutely steal!

Cool concept brought low by ♥♥♥♥ controls, ♥♥♥♥ checkoint save system, and nauseatingly bad platform physics. Cool and fun, until it's not.

To elaborate:
1.
Mouse is awesome for the shmup part. Sucks for the platforming part.
Keyboard sucks for both.
Gamepad, which i have not tried, is hopefully decent for platforming, but can't possibly be better than mouse for shmup.

2.
Checkpoints suck for everything.

3.
As for the physics, there's too much inertia and bouncing and sliding off stuff you are trying to land on is the rule, not the exception. Either bounding box issues or, again, the wack controls (and/or just something about the jump trajectory envelope) make it seem cheap and low-tech, like a phone game, or a flash game, as you are constantly denied on fundamental jumps.

Cool and fun, until it's not. I want to like this game but I quickly lost patience with the repetition brought on by the playability issues mentioned above. The game wants you to explore it, but you won't want to. And you can't just go "100% shmup", AFAICT.

I'm still recommending it cuz it's at least worth a check-out, but ..... well, all I can say is, maybe I should have bought "Ballpoint Universe - Just the First 4-5 Levels, Until It Starts Getting Dickish", instead of "Ballpoint Universe - Infinite". YMMV, I suppose.
