Not to be confused with Paul Nicholas' wonderful The Ballz are Lava!

Hit the boxes with your balls to break them, don't let the boxes touch the floor!

Another demake of another mobile game, I guess that's what I do now. Try the original Ballz on iOS and Android - it's pretty fun!

Forget about being confused with my game (thanks for the shout!)... this is awesome! :D

I've been playing this for about 10-15mins (currently up to #38 blocks) and I'm loving it. Just when I think I've found a good tactic, I go and waste a shot or two.

If you make this while you were just lying in bed and not feeling 100%? Congrats!
(...and hope u feel better soon!) :D

This is so fun. I made it to 105 before my wife suggested we go get brunch. The collision has some big issues (balls bounce in unexpected directions). However, the odd collision behavior doesnt really lessen the playability since it still behaves consistently. Good job! I'd love to see an end screen when you lose, rather than it just starting over (I know it is a work in progress and that that probably isnt the priority at this phase).

Thanks guys!!

My approach to collision is super naive so there's definitely a lot to improve there, I've been spoiled by engines doing it for me!

Very fun. I made it to level 61. (Arrival of the 62 blocks killed me.)

Edit: 140

you really think you can just go around killing people's productivity and still have them thank you?
you'd be right. thank you ;)

Thanks for playing, @ultrabrite!

The updates are really nice! Good job!

Great job! I got up to 103 :)

Very fun gameplay.

172 on the newer (tougher?) version.

I relapsed and the addiction started again. I thought I was safe from this game if I stick with PICO... so, thanks?

BTW, you can sometimes make the ballz go through the squares if it hits the corner just the right way. And I could get the ballz exit the play area on the right side.

That's part of the strategy. Or at least it seems balanced knowing this behavior is there.

I think? Or maybe I'm just a dirty cheater iunno

I did help quite a bit a few times so I was not unhappy it happened. :)

Great game. Totally addicted. My highscore was 153.

Very nice implementation. Great job.

P#44941 2017-10-06 04:20 ( Edited 2017-10-06 08:20)

this is like a whole new game genre, super addictive!

P#44945 2017-10-06 11:18 ( Edited 2017-10-06 15:18)

Fun mechanics (and thought provoking at one same time). Impressed. And though a demake, I think it's a very nice one. Good use of pico8 capabilities.

P#46435 2017-11-17 23:52 ( Edited 2017-11-18 04:52)

A nice remake of a popular mobile game. I got 54.

Past 100, this game just isn't fun. However, that's pretty part for Ballz, so well done.

P#53239 2018-06-03 18:22 ( Edited 2018-06-03 22:22)

Fun game! I'll definitely be playing more of this one. I'd like to see a 4x/8x speed up... at one point I got the ball on a shallow bounce at the top with some 200+ blocks and it got stuck up there for a long time, even with 2x speed. Still, great fun.
