Editors' Review

+
Now here's a walk down memory lane. Modeled after the hugely popular MegaBall for the Amiga, this game maintains not only the look and feel of the original breakout style of game but similar sounds as well. This freeware download is easy to play, but don't expect to be wowed by graphics or fancy features--this is nostalgia, pure and simple. For a more up-to-date brick-smashing game, you'd be best to look elsewhere. However, DX-Ball is small, stable, and free. What more could you want? Bring back the '80s and break out DX-Ball.

"It won't download. I've tried 5 or 6 times."

September 02, 2013  |  By Godsputer

 |  Version: DX-Ball 1.09

Pros

It looks like a cool game, but it won't download. If someone could give me helpful hints, I would appreciate it. When I click on the installer, it tries to download the game but I always get an error message. "Your download cannot be initiated. Please go back to download.com and try again." Also, CNET.COM has no tech help available that I've been able to find.

Cons

CNET.COM doesn't have any tech help available to help me download the game.

Pros

it's free, and mildly addictive, I need to beat my last high score.

Cons

in spite of it's small size, there might be some unnecessary loops in the program, but no viruses.

Summary

if you like old arcade style games, try it.

"A great version of an old classic."

August 16, 2011  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: DX-Ball 1.09

Pros

It's free, fun, and gives an entertaining way to spend a few minutes. My brothers and I love to compete for high scores.

Cons

Nothing with the game, but I hate this download manager thing that cnet makes you use.

Summary

Be sure to look up the "cheats" that let you edit levels and turn on music. I think it's just the ctrl-F# buttons.

"Out of style"

October 27, 2010  |  By Gama151

 |  Version: DX-Ball 1.09

Pros

Easy Download

Cons

It is not very advanced. Many arkanoid style games at least try to give it a modern play while looking old school but this program is too basic.
