  1. Awesome work! I strongly recommend monetizing this. If this was a native iOS/Android app, you could show an interstitial ad after each Game Over and offer a small in-app purchase to remove all ads. It worked for 2048, and I believe it would work here as well!

    Addictive drop-dead simplicity is repeatable recipe for success in games. I'm working towards this same strategy in my own projects, but I think you've really nailed it here!

    EDIT: Whoops, I just noticed that this was based off such an app. Still, great work on the implementation!

  2. This is a great little time waster!

    Couple of recommendations, in no particular order:

    1. Keep the ball moving even after you die. Instead of pressing start, the user will just click when the ball is back inside the colored area.
    2. You can click anywhere to restart, but you have to click the play button to restart. You should allow the user to just click anywhere to restart.
    3. When you fail, show where the ball was.
    4. As for collision detection, I think you should err on being lenient and count success if the bounds of the circle overlap, rather than the center or entirely. I think this is also due to the rounded linecaps for the arc potentially not counting as part of the valid area.
    5. Show where the next arc will be. This is more of a game design thing. If you do this, quick fade out of the old and fade in on the new would look nice.

    I understand that this was probably a small little one off project, and that there's always more you can iterate on, so I just want to say nice job in putting out a fun little time waster!
