Breakout? Arkanoid? Pinball? No, it's PowerBall! A unique and innovative mix of arcade classics with realistic ball physics and addictive game play.

The point of the game is to destroy all bricks while keeping the ball on the playing sphere. There are no walls and you have to spin your bar around the game sphere to keep the ball in play. Each level may contain many active objects such as moving and rotating bricks, beams, etc. Beware of deadly turrets on higher levels - these machines fire rockets at your bar. It requires some skills to avoid the shots while keeping the ball in play. Sometimes you will get bonuses for destroying the bricks. Those bonuses can be good ones - additional fireballs, extra life, score bonus, etc, or bad ones that will negatively affect your performance.


Controls


Clockwise rotation:
'*' or 'joystick left'

Anticlockwise rotation:
'#' or 'joystick right'

Fire fireball:
'0' or 'joystick press'

Time bonus


Each level has a time bonus that is decreasing slowly during the play. If you complete a level before the time bonus reaches zero you'll get the amount of this bonus left added to your scores. In simpler words: the faster you complete a level the higher score you will get.


Bonuses


Sometimes you will get bonuses for destroying the bricks. You can try to catch bonus if it's a good one (green coloured bonuses) or try not to get the bad ones (red coloured ones).

Good bonuses:

+25 score
+50 score
Makes the ball very hot. While this bonus works (some seconds) it burns through all bricks.
adds 3 more fireballs
enlarges your bar
adds 1 life
Completes the current level. All bricks are destroyed (with adding score for each brick and time bonus). The most powerful bonus.

Bad bonuses:

-25 score
-50 score
diminishes your bar


Turrets


Some levels have turrets. These deadly machines fire rockets during the play. Beware these shots! If the turret hits your bar it will be decreased in size. Next time when it will hit while your bar is already small you'll loose the attempt.


Fireballs


Your bar is equipped with some fireballs. You can press fire button to shot the fireball in order to destroy a brick.

Hints: fireballs could be extremely useful when, say, only one brick is left you can shot it with fireball in order to complete the level as far as possible and get higher score as time bonus. Or even when you've lost the ball you still have some time to shot last one or two bricks in order to complete level and SAVE life if you're fast enough.

It's easy to start, yet hard to master. Good luck!

This game does not contain any violence and suits players of all ages.

The trial version is limited to 15 days.
