PowBall Deluxe

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Another entry in the good old breakout genre, PowBall Deluxe is predictable fun, but it's prone to rendering issues. The idea is to hit the ball to break bricks and collect power-ups. Though the graphics are suitably slick, they are not stunning, and the black background struck us as a bit gloomy. During testing, we had trouble getting the game window to behave. In the window mode it was too small, and in the full-screen mode the game was doubled. The controls are configurable in terms of assigning custom keys and adjusting sensitivity. In addition to other restrictions, the trial version doesn't allow level editing. Retro addicts may find an afternoon's distraction here.
