    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    After 2 seconds, a prompt window comes up: 'You scored a lot of Bannanas yummm.. BANNANAS good job!!!!!'. Then it quits.

    Good game. You could improve the collision detection with the top/bottom of the screen a little better, and you could improve the graphics a little better (the yellow square happy face in particular). You should also make it a bet harder instead of never-ending (ie gradually add more bouncing balls).

    @xsquared: you have to move the monkey before it gets hit by the balls

    @funkydude:thanks for the good suggestions. i know the smiley face is not exactly art magnifico but it is funny and cheap imo. I have problems with the collision detection, is there a way i can make it smoother so that when the face hits the wall it doesnt jump back .2 spaces and just goes back. Also the directions of the ball sometimes go back and fourth instead of more random directions. I will fix these later. Thanks Funkydude

    you might want to have an opening screen, just so the user doesn't die right away when the game starts up.

    I played for about a minute, and eventually all 4 balls got "stuck" together so to speak, bouncing from top corner, to bottom right. It was incredibly easy to get the bananas.

    Haven't looked at the code, but good job for first game.

    That's because one of the balls already hit you before you even get a chance to do a thing. If you run it a couple more times, you'll get a chance.

    You should really add something like "press space to start.." in the beginning.
