Japan and Linux

6 março 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 fevereiro 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.

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.

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!

Pretty bland game with little content, I rather play flash games on the internet to be completely honest.

Generic space shooter, with badly contolled platformer as a wrapping paper. Clever visuals wasted on a boring game, waste of talent.

Jeez, for $3 what is there to complain about here? Nothing. Nice little game. It's like an old arcade side scroller which is a bit of a walk down memory lane, playing things like 'R-Type' back in the day. Graphics are interesting. Music does the job. Nice to see they went straight for mouse control not the x-box controller. Buy it and give the developers a couple of bucks to encourage them on their future path of game design.
