Patch Notes:

-Modified the Blade (power03) power up to now award a point for every enemy that you cut through during it's duration
-Modified the Point (power00) power up to now award three points upon activation instead of two
-Modified the Time (power01) power up to no longer completely stop time. Now the power will slow time to about 25% speed but for a longer duration. This adds more challenge as the enemies still move which decreases the over powered nature of this power up in end game times but also allows players to better get close calls on the slower enemies.
-Slightly altered the overall balancing of enemy spawning and speeds to compensate for the changes made to power ups.
-Changed font throughout to better fit into the games aesthetic
-Improved the look of power up pick ups
-Changed the appearance of text and effects for bonus points
-Better effects and particles for when enemies explode and hit walls
-Softened and altered a variety of particle effects to make them blend better with the overall aesthetics and be more lean for lower end CPUs
-Altered all in game menus to have more noticeable / functional selection methods.
-Added minor new background effects to further the neon / soft / ?foggy? kind of aesthetic I was aiming for
-Pressing back from the round end menu will now back out to the character select screen, and then back again will go to the menu
-Resolved bug where screen shaking continued into pause menu
-Fixed some rare unusual particle layering during the pause menu

I have also created a separate branch on Steam for players that have issues or don't like the changes made, so they can still access V3 through the BETA menu in the Steam Client.

Thanks for all the great suggestions from the community; special shout out to Hex Decimus.

Thank you to everyone for playing and sharing the game with your friends and family I appreciate your support immensely. If you are enjoying my games, make sure to leave brief Steam Reviews and let others know to check them out, this is incredibly helpful for us small developers to get discovered by more players. :)

About This Game

Ding and Dong between the top and bottom of the screen as you attempt to avoid obstacles, collect points, and smash helpful power-ups. Try to survive as long as you can!

Pressing the Ding Dong button allows you to cross the screen from top to bottom or vice-versa. Wait for the proper timing and don't hit enemies. Easy one button control with a Gamepad/Controller, Keyboard, or mouse.

  • Easy to learn, simple controls on keyboard, controller or mouse
  • An endless, fast paced and challenging arcade style game play that constantly gets harder
  • Unlock a handful of unique cosmetic skins for your player, including some from other Nickervision Studios games
  • 'Close Call' system that awards extra points for close calls with obstacles.
  • Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Leader board, and Trading cards (coming soon)! (with emoticons & profile wallpapers)
  • Perfect for playing a round while in Queue for another game :)
  • The in game audio/SFX was provided by my mouth making noises into a crumby consumer mic and some royalty free SFX from FreeSFX.
  • In game song / loops are Difourks - "It's Complextro & Dance"

This is an 'XL' version of my popular mobile game 'Ding Dong'. I have added/changed a variety of things to make it more suitable for the Steam platform and improved a lot of code and features based on knowledge gained since I originally made it. I have been learning to make games by making games and love creating small-yet-solid arcade games with simple mechanics. Please expect 'Ding Dong XL' to be a small, re-playable, arcade score-chaser game where the only basic goals are to constantly beat your previous score and unlock a handful of cosmetic skins for the character. I greatly appreciate feedback and will do my best to ensure support for my games. Please contact me through Twitter, My Website, or the forums if you encounter something wrong with the game, something misleading on the store page, or you just want to say hello.

Thank you for taking a moment to read this; I really hope you enjoy playing my game.
