If you happen to have a VR headset (Rift, Vive, or Mixed Reality) I have my first Virtual Reality game coming to Steam on August 3rd. It was a totally new learning experience for me and I think it turned out really cool to play in 3D with things popping out at you. Make sure to add it to your wishlist if you're interested.

V2

Patch Notes:
-Added a small timer on player to show how long time based power ups have remaining.
-Extended time slow power up slightly, as well as changed so enemies gradually (but quickly) resume normal speed instead of instantly.
-Added a second check when exiting the game to properly shutdown the Steam API which I had reports that it had been remaining open after playing resulting in SteamCloud getting messed up. (will need feedback on whether this resolves those issues)
-Optimized a variety of GFX and textures to improve performance on extremely low end machines.
-Resolved an issue where transition system would get stuck and confused, resulting in some loading not being hidden.
-Resolved correct link for new Developer page.
-Improved some translations with player feedback.

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.
