CNET Editors' reviewFun and challenging, Alpha Ball puts a 3D twist on the Arkanoid tradition. As always, you must lob a ball to break through walls. Here, however, you get a third dimension: the bricks comprise several levels, and a wall may change its shape as you destroy obstacles on the lower level. You can rotate the 3D ground to better view bricks and prepare for these surprises. Your racket looks more like a crossbow and is more effective when launching oblique balls. Unfortunately, you can't configure control keys. Also, the game may run slowly if your video drivers are not up-to-date. The trial version gives you one hour to decide if you like the game, but we could tell within minutes that Alpha Ball would satisfy Arkanoid fans looking for something new.
From Dekovir Entertainment:
Alpha Ball is a totally 3D entry into the Arkanoid/Breakout genre, featuring simple controls and addictive gameplay. Each level has built-in, completely 3D backward and upward functionality, with great graphics and effects. The application also features the new Suspend Game feature that lets you quit a game and return to it later. The program has 100 levels, with random level matching.
