This is fun! It's a very interesting mechanic, with a reasonable amount of story around it. I had some frustration in the beginning not being sure if it was even possible to get a good ending, or how to manage it. But once I looked that up (try to minimize your TFs), I enjoyed it. Worth playing!
It's certainly a unique game. There's reasonable depth to the progression of the TG, the artwork is decent, the overall story fairly reasonable.
Ultimately, what holds it back is that it's just Pachinko, for better and for worse. It's a novel idea, and the gameplay is fairly fun for the first few playthroughs, but ultimately what TG and ending you get is often down more to luck than any relevant skill. It makes it quite annoying when you're shooting for one path in particular, or trying to get a specific ending.
Having more control over what path you get on subsequent playthroughs, either by removing certain paths from the machine or giving the player more control of the ball, would mostly fix this issue.
It's still worth a playthrough, maybe a couple if you're really into the randomness of it. Otherwise, it's hard to recommend a completionist runthrough.
TF pinball. More pinpall than TF. And if you hate pinball like I do (which is something I managed to forget till this game reminded me) then I'd suggest staying away.
On the TF side you get about 4-5 short playthroughs worth of content resulting in 6 ending. Achieved by sticking to one of the 4 "life directions" or to neither one of them. It's not particularly lengthy or deep, but it's solid. Well, solid except for the whole "determined by painball pinball" thing.
On the technical side, some UI elements go off-screen and you don't get to save the game or rebind the controls. But overall it's passable.
I was very skeptical about the concept and absolutely wrong to be. It's a fun little game! You consistently manage to release surprisingly well made games that have stretched the genres of what is typically found. Real impressive, mate.
Pretty fun overall, a few endings to go for to add some replay value. I do wish i could go back and view endings/path's i've already completed, as you dont get a ton of agency when it comes to which path you end up on. It's all very dependent on luck, which is fair, given it's essentially pachinko. Definitely worth a try!
