Gameplay Breakdown

What is the gameplay like?
It depends on the level. Most single-player levels task you with eating all the balls in the level. This could be tricky because of getting fatter while you eat, or a pillbug attacking you, or a bunch of spikeballs flying around.

How does it control?
You fly around in the level with either the left stick (Xbox controller) or the mouse.
The A button (or left mouse button) let's you boost to go faster. There's 3 "boost stages" to go even faster.
The X button (or right mouse button) hold's your breath and slows you down. You can slam the brakes fast.
Double-tapping X button (or RMB) makes you spit balls which is useful for attacking or spitting things like a cue ball or sandwich piece.



What's up with the sandwiches?
There are a lot of level goals throughout the game that keep things fresh. In the single-player, lots of times you are eating all the balls to win a level, but other times you may be breaking all the crates to win (competing against AI creatures in the level). Or there's survival puzzles where they are tough to navigate and taking too much damage fails you.
There's also levels where you have to build a sandwich before the AI pillbugs do.
And levels where you have to eat all the ice cream. Or stay in the moving circle. Or dodge the asteroids.
Basically there's lots of levels, and we keep the level goals changing for each level, to make it fun.


The local 4-player is pretty much complete insanity.

There's a definite chance. I'd have to get it through Greenlight, but that's probably next on the agenda after this ships and rocks everyone's friggin world! :)

Is there any chance of getting Shoot 1UP on Steam as well? That was one of the very best XBLIG games.
