Ball Revamped 5: Synergy

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Ball Revamped Five: Synergy takes the Ball Revamped formula in a new direction, with evolving power ups and branched gameplay. The game took 8 months of production time in conjunction with over a year of planning.

Although you'll only play 50 levels at a time in this version, the game has several hubs that allow you to explore new worlds based on your performance and skill. The game has 12 possible routes to the final boss, so it's not just a linear game.

Included is a built -in level editor, so you can swap levels with friends, rate each other's levels, and go for the unique high scores for each level you make!

Hope you enjoy, we worked really hard to bring you this today :).

*** Controls: WASD or arrow keys. Try tapping the up key to get started, then work your way towards using the left and right keys.

*** Flash 9: You'll need Flash 9 to play this game. Update if its not working for you.

*** Cookies: The game stores level information on your computer. If you have cookies turned off, you won't be able to save!

While the most polished looking Ball Revamped, I feel like this is missing something that BR4 had. The synergy system is cool and allows for some neat puzzles, but the mechanics never feel fully realized. Similarly, the alinear style of the game feels like it has potential but mostly just feels like you never get the complete experience, especially since there's no clear way to be sure you've beaten all of the levels upon replaying the game. The alinear puzzle and exploration aspects don't really blend with the arcade style of carefully avoiding obstacles, and while this game is far less frustrating than BR4, I'd argue it's less rewarding as well.

Still, the beauty of the graphics can't be overstated and the music has gotten a big overhaul as well. I specifically loved the elemental animations for the ball, and the effects on the four colors shown.

Ken10Ben, levels 81 to 90 can be accessed from level 60. The portal for access is called "Platycodon" (not sure if it's spelled that way). Also, you can feel free to explore every part of the big levels (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100) to see which realms (worlds) each big level can take you to.
