CurveBall. What a crazy game.
Can be found here: http://www.fetchfido.co.uk/games/curve_ball/curve_ball.htm
Even when finding that link i had to play some CurveBall. SUPER CURVE BONUS!
CurveBall is an insane version of pong. You play in a 3D tunnel, and can put some crazy curve on the ball (hence the name. Genius). However, the curve can get to insane levels and literally have to be in the matrix to win.
You have to progress through each level by getting 3 points against the opponent. For example, you get 3 points against level 1; you move onto level 2 etc. However, you are only given 5 lives over the entire game. Tough stuff.
You are actually given points on the amount of shots you are able to return, however if you are like me and just want to WIN, you don’t care about points and just want to get to the highest level possible (level 8 is my best, try and beat me. It’s impossible).
The gameplay of CurveBall is very smooth with no lag (suprising), however there is a large amount of stress involved with the game. I think this is due to the insane skill of the Ai on levels 7 and 8 (and 9 if that even exists), which will make you want to find the person who made this game and throw him out a window.
The graphics on CurveBall are second to none. You even feel like you are in a real tunnel playing CurveBall with Neo. The big green ball is pretty hard to miss, so even if you are visually impared, you can still get as stressed as the rest of us. I also assume the AIs panel is red because they make you so angry. I’m pretty sure this is done for effect, and to make your anger distract you from ever getting to level 9. Damn you level 9.
CurveBall is curvetastic. Oh yeah CurveBall jargon. If you want a game where you can sit back and relax on for 30 minutes, CurveBall IS NOT for you. If you want an addictive game where you just want bragging rights on all your friends (who all play Curveball, ask them), CurveBall is for you and you really should click the link.
Good luck young Padawans.
