Flash Game: Spin the Balack Circle.

This is a very neat but difficult Flash game. I can't be held responsible for any tearing out of hair or smashed PCs :D

Beautifully done, and the physics are spot on.

Made it to "from here on you're on your own", then decided to stop before my blood pressure killed me ;)

I don't get it. From the original post and f0dder's comment and the warning at the beginning of the game, I was led to believe that this was a difficult game.

I'm on this level and haven't had any frustrations yet:

EDIT:

Okay maybe I spoke too soon. The one pictured above did take some time to figure out, but I got it after a couple minutes of trying. This one is hard because the physics are not spot on. You actually have to stop rotating the background to get gravity to have an effect on the ball. It will keep going whatever direction it is going until you stop rotating and it realizes that there is a new "down" it needs to worry about.

Wouldn't say it's difficult in the "have-to-think" way, but my timing sucks... so it gets frustrating. And for some reason, I tend to confuse up & down, so I mess up the whole gravity thing.

The first few levels are very easy, but they start to get tricky. It was fun though.
