heyo! the original version I

heyo! the original version I uploaded had a bug that caused the game to crash on load. I've just uploaded a fixed version, so please give it another spin and let me know if you have any trouble. Thanks!

I had a lot of fun playing

I had a lot of fun playing this but then I am the Xena fan who suggested her as a theme for the jam. The use of the dramatic sound clips in relation to something as prosaic as golf really did make me laugh. And I enjoyed the gameplay - not sure if anyone has combined golf with monkey ball style mechanics before but it was new to me. It really did feel like a perfect Grid Grind game - it makes me want to look again at my own current WIP and possibly scrap it to try to make something as light-hearted and joyful and just plain fun as this.

Thank you for the comment

Thank you for the comment and also thanks for suggesting Xena as a theme! It immediately set off some flashbacks to daytime tv in me that really got me into a creative mood :>
The monkey-ball-like movement was more by accident because it seemed a hassle to design a proper golf course. But I'm glad it worked and I also had a lot of fun playing around with the movement.
I hope I didn't topple your current wip plans too much, I'm looking forward to your submission!

I really enjoy this and plan

I really enjoy this and plan to get more familiar with the course so I can provide some competitive highscores. It feels like some really interesting multiple chakram-shots could be made with all that ball-control and the surfing-spice brings that kind of ambition to the forefront.

My friend didn't know who Xena was.

What a shame. This is brilliant.

Very glad I didn't have to collect _every_ chakram. Thankyou for the Linux build, performance is great.

The moving platforms run at a crazy speed on my system -- they might be linked to framerate?

Amazing title, and the game

Amazing title, and the game didn't disappoint

I haven't kept scores but I want to say the lowest I got was a bit over two and a half minutes

I laughed

Very novel idea to basically 'start your platformer' from wherever you manage to golf to. I had fun completing it, and the occasional voice clips were as funny as they were surprising during my intense focus on thin platforms.
