Bouncing Balls

Download.com Staff Aug 27, 2009

Bouncing Balls is a basic game in which users eliminate groups of balls by shooting balls of the same color at them. It's a fun game, although we've seen similar games that are a little more interesting.

The program's interface is basic. A wall of different colored balls moves toward the bottom of the screen, while a shooter provides users with a supply of balls to fire at it. Shoot a red ball at a group of two or more red balls, for example, and they fall, taking with them any balls that are attached. The object of the game is to get rid of all the balls before the wall reaches the bottom of the screen. As players advance through the game, the wall moves faster, the balls get smaller, and different ball colors are added. There's no Help file, but game play is intuitive, and the publisher's Web site offers tips. The game is fun, but it could be better. The sound effects quickly became tedious and annoying, and we were glad to be able to turn them off. We wish the program had a full-screen mode, or even the option to maximize the window, as we sometimes moused outside the window when aiming the shooter and then inadvertently minimized the game. Other than that, the game is enjoyable, but it didn't knock our socks off.

Bouncing Balls is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Developer's Description

In this game there is a grid of balls that are slowly moving down. You need to shoot balls to destroy them by forming groups of 3 or more balls of the same colour. After you have destroyed some balls, the balls that are attached to the rest of the balls will fall down and be destroyed. Sometimes you may need to shoot the balls to the wall so that they bounce off and destroy other balls. If you cannot destroy all the balls before they reach the bottom of the screen, you lose.
