Soccer Ball Juggle
Just released a major update including all new graphic assets, the ability to collect whistles and use these to unlock new soccer balls and jerseys from teams all over the world.

Would love some feedback.

Hope you all enjoy it :)

Link to the AppStore:

As the name suggests, it is a ball juggling game. What makes it unique and interesting is that it uses built in physics and the joints (ragdoll) extension by captaincomic. This creates an interesting game play, where timing and accuracy mean the difference between a low and high score.

I want to thank everyone on the forums, including Jon, rob1221, Abi, GeorgeN (Vungle extension)

Special thanks goes out to captaincomic for the Joints extension; without this extension, Soccer Ball Juggle would not have been possible!

Good luck with it. Never managed to juggle the ball more than 2-3 times in real life so maybe with a game I will have more chances :D

Thanks GeorgeN ! Well if you would like to practice here is the Android version (hoping for AppStore to finish its review in the next day or so) I'm sure you will score more than 3 :)

Hi id8Games, I see you have the Indie Subscription, is that correct? Didn't think you were able to publish to mobile with that?

Hi colburt187, my signature shows indie, but I'm on the studio plan...

That looks like a fun game.

I noticed that the eyes only move up and down. For a future update, you could make the eyes rotate to follow the ball. Basically, it involves sin/cos, which can be frustrating. However, by using math and drawing the eyes with a circle shape, the eyes can be made to move around in an oval shape.

Thanks Photics, great idea! I will add this in v2 :)

That looks amazing! Well done. Do you plan to post scores to facebook or anything like that?

Yes, actually I am. Problem is I am having difficulty working out how to do it. I have tried the customFacebookShare  behaviour on stencylforge, but it is actually outdated. Facebook has changed how the share feature works.

Also reading on these forums, people are having issues with the [Android & iOS] Facebook Mobile Extension - OpenFL Extension.

So not sure what to do here... Do you know any solution?

If you have a website, you could post the scores there. (HTTP Request Blocks)
Does the iOS version use Game Center?

Yep, Game Center has been implemented for the iOS version - just waiting on AppStore to review the App.
Google Play has it's own Game Services - but no idea how to implement those (anyone working on an extension for that :p)

Good idea with the HTTP request Blocks :)

I'm having the same issues with posting scored to facebook.

Just updated Soccer Ball Juggle.

1. Tweaked the controls to make them a little more intuitive;
2. Added  a  SHARE score on facebook button!!!!

I tested the SHARE feature, and works on my galaxy s3 - only limitation I found is that it does not open the facebook app. It only opens a browser and loads facebook that way - but it still works (better than nothing).

Can everyone with an android device test the SHARE feature - if it works well on many devices then I will upload the behaviour to Stencylforge  for others to use.

Make sure you download the latest Android version:

iOS version is finally live ! Was a nightmare getting it through the app review process - talking to the app review guys at apple through the resolution center sometimes feels like you are talking to a robot - their answers don't even relate to the issue.

Anyway, it was a crazy experience. Here is the link to the AppStore:
