To quote: Here is the first and very early release of Swingball 2. Unlike its predecessor it is available not only for Wii but also for PS3 (with a PC version forthcoming).
There were some really cool user made levels for the original Swingball that did things I hadn't even thought of and I’m looking forward to seeing how people take advantage of the new stuff in this game.
There are now blocks that can be swung from but not walked on (they aren't solid). There are also tiles that will change the direction of gravity when you come in contact with them.
I haven't begun it yet but I plan to make a WYSIWYG editor which will make it even easier for people to create their own levels.
There is a lot left to do. The game currently just consists of a single test level.
- Left analog stick = Move
- Right analog stick = Aim
- L1 = Jump
- R1 = Swing
- Analog stick = Move
- Pointer = Aim
