There needs to be something that adjusts from try to try - otherwise I can get stuck forever. I've played level 14 I don't know how many times - and I'm not getting much closer to solving it.

For example: In level 14, you start at 17 balls. If you lose - maybe it should add 10%-ish for each loss: Thus, the second time, I'd get 19 balls - and then 21, 23 25 28 31 34 - with more balls to shoot - I'd have a chance (eventually) to beat the level. With it always starting over in EXACTLY the same spot - 17 balls, same starting position, same everything: I'm not sure I'll ever beat the level.

Well this is a really really annoying little brain, eye, hand, luck combo. Keeper for me. Fans of pool & chess will get a kick as will those who remember those Island Cannon type of physics time wasters. Bit of all that mixed in. Compelling part is to see just what kind of twist will they have to offer next trial, ahh level. Can toggle sound, music. No timer. At higher harder ones a replay may throw you a bone with an easy starting color ball so if do fail a level just run through it again. Seems if you don't see a colored ball in the initial set then just chuck it away for next color that matches that set rather than place it into the set. Avoids having to match that color from get go.
Windows 10 x 64. Thank GOTD. Having a nice Spring at last. Hung on like Winter before.

This is a fun switch-up from HOG (which I enjoy) but the moving targets make me a little dizzy. In a way, it's good because I can't spend too much time playing before I have to stop and do something else.

Enjoyed my first 15 minutes and will come back to it later. I like the simple graphics and colors - easy to look at and easy to distinguish the colors. First levels were an easy introduction but on the 4th level the target constantly changes. It's a real challenge to aim, avoid the moving basket, and still hit two or more of the color you're shooting at. Took me four tries to get through the level.

I think the countdown timer adds excitement to the game, although it would be good to add a difficulty setting that gives more or less time on each level.

There's an element of chance that mixes things up, and physics seem reasonable. No need for pixel-perfect accuracy. I like how it restarts a level quickly if you run out of time: there are no menus wade through or summary screens to wait for or animations to watch, you just get right back and start again. Very nice! But I don't see it changing "my perception of space and time" - that's pure marketing BS that almost kept me from trying this.

Thanks GGOTD and MyPlayCity for bringing this one to us!

Very quick download, about 2 minutes. You shoot a colored ball and try to hit like-colored balls to pop them. There are a variety of containers that hold the target balls and they move to make it more challenging. I played 3 levels and got bored. There might be more to it further along but it didn't hold my interest long enough to find out. Won't be a keeper for me.

The 'Homepage' link above doesn't work but here's one that does: https://www.bigfishgames.com/games/18060/area-42/

As a player of Space games (Elite Dangerous, No Man's Sky etc) it takes a lot to change my perspective on space and time. This one sadly failed to change it. That said, for puzzle fans, this is fun for a few lost hours

Nach dem Klick auf setup passiert nichts und ich lande sofort auf der Seite "Area 42 aktiviert - wie geht es weiter?" Wenn ich den Link https://www.bigfishgames.com anklicke, steht da: "Hoppla!
Entschuldigung, die von Ihnen gesuchte Seite ist nicht hier.
Vielleicht haben Sie auf einen veralteten Link geklickt oder die URL falsch eingegeben, oder vielleicht sind es nur wir.
Ärgere dich nicht!
Gehen Sie einfach auf unsere Homepage und fahren Sie von dort fort."
Und anschließend beginnt das Spielchen wieder von vorne :(
