The game looks like it would be interesting to watch with robots needing to use the walls to score points, rather than just directly scoring as in most other games, but it looks like it would be difficult to actually play with only four targets on each side, and all of them needing the ball to hit two walls at almost exactly 45 degrees to each of the walls before scoring anything. If there was an easier target that either needed no wall collisions or just one collision to reach it, it would make it a lot easier for beginners, but would still leave the two collision targets worth more points for more experienced teams. The stop motion looks ok, but the distortion on the images that blocks out half the screen throughout the animation makes it a bit difficult to watch, so it could be a bit better if you only used the photos that were saved normally without distortion and stretched out the video to the same length with only the better quality photos. Other than that, the animation’s clear and shows the game well :) Good luck!
