Flash Friday: Filler. Fill the 2/3 of the available space using as few spheres as possible while avoiding the bouncing balls.

Is this buggy? I seem to be getting hit when I'm no where near those opponent balls.

You may be running out of balls unixrat -- no offense. Note that there are a set number for each level. If you make too many the "flash" is the same as if you had hit one.

unixrat, I think that once the ball counter (upper right portion of the screen) gets to zero, every additional ball counts as a life.

Must stop playing 22,210...

A couple of levels in I'd try to puff up a big one in a top corner and one of the bouncy balls would appear out of nowhere. Otherwise addictive and enjoyable, thanks!

When a ball gets "crushed" it reappears in the upper right. Good to know if you're building stuff. I got to level 30 once, but it starts to get pretty insane after 20. On the plus side, some magical threshold is reached where the flash rendering really slows down and your reaction times are hence "improved"...

Hoisted by my own petard.

Everyone else is correct - I didn't realize that there was...

a) A ball limit
b) That the crushed balls come out of the right hand corner.

Two thumbs up!

This is getting too slow around level 20 for my lousy work computer. But they won't listen when I say I need a faster machine!

BRAVO! Thanks ooga!

Aaah I get this now. I played this a few weeks ago, and like unixrat, I couldn't figure out why I was dying without touching any balls. Now it all makes sense.

Eek! 20k points, level 11, nearly blind now. Only complaint is that the app window is too small, so every time I slip out while building filler, it keeps growing and I get hit.

Must stop playing...I'm at 51,000 with 68 balls and 26 lives left...but I have stuff to do!

Oh balls, there goes my productivity...

Significant ball speed difference between IE and Firefox -- Firefox felt like sudden death. IE could be described as "pleasant."

May the man with the biggest balls win!

Nothing loads for me, must require Flash 9. Bah! Lazy programmers, always requiring the absolute latest environment ...

I didn't notice the first few times playing that I was able to move the mouse while 'inflating' a ball. After I that the game became much easier for me. I also use some balls as sheilds to deflect the bouncers leaving more room for the next, larger ball.

It is like quix, but easier

Qiite fun, I like trapping the little buggers

My highest score is 77,878. Not amazing but decent I'd say. Don't ask me how the leaderboard scores got up to the hundreds of millions or billions (can't tell due to some formatting error with the date).

38,252 and I have to purge the URL from my brain now.

I am on level 57, with 147,000 points. I can't stop playing this game. MAKE IT STOP

It was fun, but I got bored at level 20.

Reminds me of mono with the hyper-aware twitchiness you develop. Lots of fun.

Hmmm I was wondering why I seemed to be so useless... MUST... RESIST... BOOTING... UP... IE

Flagged as fun! But my question is... How do you make the bouncy balls "orbit" each other. That happened once for me, but had no clue as to how.

Arrrgh! *scratches post out of "stuff to post" bookmarks, goes back to playing Filler.*
