This is part one of the Ball Revamped III game. It took over 2 months to create, and was the brain child of myself and Marc. Two different flash files, split between 100 different levels and two final bosses, multiple power ups, multiple enemies, 10 different atmospheres, and a whole lot more. The files got so big I had the reduce background quality and split the game into two parts. Enjoy! Lightly tap the up key to keep suspended, then start to work in the arrow keys.

Best yet.

Starting this review before finishing, so I don't forget what to say.

1st world - fun to play. Maybe a touch too hard too early imo?

2nd world - nice level design. low quality .jpg (?) is horrible. Maybe you should have made the picture smaller in size and repeated it somehow. Starting to notice how disorientating the sorta reverse parallax is (bg scrolls faster than foreground - opposite to irl.

3rd world - I like the fans. Familiar with a lot of these elements, but you have played about a fair bit. Like level 27 (fan/switch on right, need to head back left). I do think though it would have been nice if we'd have had particles showing which way the wind is blowing. Maybe an option to turn them off, with them being generating by AS if you're worried about lag.

4th - I'm loving the way you have the 1st level of each world be an easy introduction into the 'theme' of that world. Starting to really dislike the fake exits. I just think there's no point in necessiating trial and error.

5th - really love the gravity here. Not so keen on the squids, which can sometimes require a long wait before a level is completable.

Boss - good fun to begin with, but too much repetition imo. Not much fun doing exactly the same thing 10x. Not unless there's some ability to try different tactics for a score or whatever. Having the one 'attack' last for 10 rounds (it seems) is a mistake, I feel.

I've concentrated on the negative aspects as it's them that allow you to improve.

Overall though it was great fun. Maybe have more feedback regarding the score throughout - maybe have a 'par' and a 'personal best' and those would be displayed as you progress so you see just how well (or badly!) you're doing.

Think I've covered all the negatives. I enjoyed it all throughout and though it could have mebbe moved on a bit more from v2, it's definitely the best yet, even disregarding the 2nd half. Presentation is better as are the levels, generally speaking. I love the way the ball returns when you die.

Maybe have it rest on the death point a tiny bit longer though. Like maybe 0.2s longer, just so we're in no doubt as to what killed us.

Awesome work.

Holy Crap!

I thought 2 was good, but my goodness! Is there no end to the awesomeness? *notices that part 2 is also up*. Good God!

Lots of good stuff here, anyone familiar with Ball Revamped Metaphisik (or any of the Ball series) will feel right at home. Use the direction keys to guide the ball... but this time, new obstacles, pausing, and scrolling levels!

Graphics are beatiful too. Good work on the little environmental stuff like spaceships and bubbles. The removal of power-ups is a great feature I must say.

Overall, just amazing... I can't even think of any constructive criticism, very very rare of me. Ok, ok, I don't like the fake portals, but that's just me :P

The new boss was good too. Can't wait to encounter the final ordeal :O I'm off to play Part 2.

Craziness!

Great, great stuff. I love the gameplay changes in each level. The difficulty curve is quite nice, and it actually gets easier as you go for once. I enjoyed this more than Gemini, as the level design is more fun and more puzzle-y. The final boss is crazy hard, too.

This game is way too addicting! The level changes were suprising but made it all the more exciting. I really liked the jungle levels. I played so much I fealt totally worn out hours later. It's fun and challenging.
