A game of reflexes and tactics - zip here - tested in Windows XP and Vista. Also tested in Wine, where it sort of works - there was a strange delay in the menus, and the gameplay was a bit ...sluggy. But playableish.

Very simple, but very fun, and those slugs are cute!
Some small touches really helped to bring this game to life:
- the drums sfx when you hit the balls   Hand Thumbs Up Left
- the speed sliders that gives you some tactics choices  Hand Thumbs Up Left
- the story which made me laugh...  Hand Thumbs Up Left

Lots of options to extend this game in future versions, like more players on each team, obstacles on the field, etc.

Many thanks for your feedback, tzachs! Glad you found the game fun!

Regarding additional features.. a simple game like this inspires many ideas easily, but when the game feels good with a small feature set, you must be careful when introducing new stuff. Smiley Jarkko in particular feels that this version is finished as it is, and a sequel will be sort of its own game.. anyway, I'm thinking that workable new features would include different playing fields (other shapes, perhaps obstacles, even moving ones); and three or four teams (with three/four goals) and appropriate field shapes for them.

cheers!
