Author's Description: KBall is a game of skill and reflexes, non violent, suitable for all ages.
The idea is to move a ball around the map, without falling, without running out of time, and getting the prizes, in order to reach the exit.
The map has different traps, such as slides, pushers, jumps, falls, walls, etc.
One of the nice features of the game is the easy point 'n click built-in map editor, so anybody can make their own maps.
Maps are viewed from top view, and the walls and player's ball are real-time rendered in beautiful 3D.
The engine is designed with expansion packs in mind, so, after the initial release, is planned to release expansion packs with new levels, prizes and features.

- 100% non-violent FUN
- Suitable for ALL ages!
- Easy to use, Full map editor included.
- You now can do your OWN maps!
- Available with cross-platform support for DOS, Windows, Unix, Linux, BeOS, QNX and MacOS systems.
- Source code also available (under open source license)

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 8.7
  • 8Good art. The fonts could use anti-aliasing. Gameplay is slightly boring. I fell off the map too often.
  • 8may-2004: Looks very promising so far. Could use more levels and some smoother graphics and there's no sound and music yet but even as it is, it lokos very good. It will be an excellent game once it's finnished so keep up the good work!
  • 10This game is really great fun! It's a pity that there aren't more levels. But I think you will make more, because this is only a beta... That's why I give the game "Excellent"-Rating..
