This cheerful game tasks you with deftly maneuvering a gerbil ball to ensure the safety of a cartoon rodent named Gerry. In Super Gerball, you must keep your gerbil from falling into the abyss by navigating a series of obstacles, such as floating platforms and spinning conveyor belts. You score points by collecting crystals and finishing each level as quickly as possible. The animated 3D graphics are well rendered, while the bright color scheme and happy-go-lucky music lend the game a lighthearted feel. However, some users may find themselves quickly frustrated by the game, as controlling your gerbil with the mouse can be a tricky affair that takes a while to master, even on the easiest difficulty level. You can set the mouse sensitivity to make this daunting task a bit simpler, but you can't choose to play with the keyboard instead. Still, the rest of the feature set is satisfactory, letting you view the game from several angles, disable the audio, and play in windowed mode. Both older children and some adults are likely to get a kick out of Super Gerball.

Gerry the Gerbil loves playing in his ball - he would play all day long if he could. Unfortunately though, the house in which Gerry lives is not safe - if he is not careful, he will fall and hurt himself. This is where you come in. You must guide Gerry around the 60 levels contained within the house, making sure he does not fall off the edge on any of them.
