We have been getting a ton of great feedback on Radial 50 - mostly positive, but the overwhelming gripe with the game is that users are often losing sight the ball. We feel strongly that a big part of the “challenging” nature of the game is dealing with the intensity of what is going on on the screen - but losing the ball is not fun and we think fixing this issue will bring a more enjoyable experience while playing.
The primary suggestions for fixing this issue you been…
1) Make the ball glow/make it bigger
2) add a trail to the ball
Below is a video showing an example of the trail effect, followed by a screenshot of what the glow feature might look like.
We want your feedback! Let us know what you think about these options. We are working to submit this update very soon, so now is your chance to give us your opinion.
Checkout the video below of the trail effect option. This would allow you to see the direction of the ball as well as be able to better see its general location on the playfield. We have control over how this trail effect is displayed, but so far we like how this looks.
For technical reasons, we want to avoid changing the size of the ball. Rather than make the ball bigger, an option would be to create a “halo” around the ball. The halo would move with the ball.
The glow affect demonstrated below could be a constant glow, or pulsate.
