8/10

How would you like to smack some balls around? No? Oh well, this game probably isn’t for you, then. You have a ball…that’s attached to another ball…and you’re protecting a ball from other balls. Confused? Cool. This is an interesting defense-style game that has you defending a ball in the center of the screen.

Your basic goal is to make sure the stationary ball stays just that; stationary. Fling your other ball around with the mouse and strike the black balls to run them off the screen. The faster they are struck the more points you get. In fact, make sure you’re constantly on the move because even if you aren’t busy hitting stuff you’ll still get points for being in motion. Between levels you can purchase upgrades to make your ball faster, the stationary ball smaller, or the boundary circle bigger.

There’s a lot of circles in this game. In fact, the only other object you’re going to see in action are lines from when you strike the black balls or the line going between your balls. Now the music is really top notch for this game and from what I understand it was composed specifically for this game. A very nice touch indeed. There is a mute option if you pause (P) the game during rounds if you’re not keen on the tunage, though. The one disappointing thing was the near lack of sound effects. Not that there’s much you could do here, but something more would have been nice.


7/10. Pretty simple graphics but nice shading.


8/10. Fast-paced and enjoyable game.


7/10. Excellent music but few sound effects.


8/10. Ball-smacking fun!


8/10. Heeeere mousey, mousey, mousey.

This is a fun action/defense game and is definitely worth a swing. 8/10
