First off, I do very much appreciate that a company created a game that may be dubbed a sequel to Ballance. The ideas in Switchball and the level design are nice extensions to Ballance. Now a few comments on the gameplay and an assessment of Switchball compared to Ballance.

I found Switchball via serendipity, purchased and installed the full version without a hitch on my Vista system, thinking this game would be a nice Easter present for my kid. On Easter Sunday, however, I ran into substantial trouble getting the game installed on my kid's otherwise standard XP system - I kept getting a blank registration screen during Setup. The game made me waste some 2 hours on Easter Sunday walking through all trouble shooting sections in vain, until I decided to walk through the registry via Regedit and eliminate all and every traces of Sierra. For some reason, the installation then went smoothly - yet a software company should not make parents walk via an otherwise critical editor through the registry of some standard PC. That experience tinged very much the impression of Switchball.

Gameplay: I can't help but compare this game to Ballance, which is a class in its own, way more elaborate than those Marble Madness derivatives, which convey a simplistic impression with respect to the gameplay in general and the graphics when compared to Ballance and to Switchball. The gameplay and the atmosphere with Ballance are much more intense than with Switchball, though. There are three reasons:

1) The music and sound design of Switchball is simplistic, thus getting boring and stale quickly, quite in contrast to the sound design and music coming with Ballance.

Switchball is a challenging game that remains fun at every level in the game.
I bought the PC version and would say you definitely need to purchase a game controller (it usually connects through a USB port) in order to play the game effectively and efficiently. I have a simple Logitech game controller and can't imagine playing this game on my computer without using one.
There are about 6 or 7 levels in the game. You start out with the first level and proceed through about 6 different puzzles within each level. Upon completion of the first level, you unlock the next level and so on. The game gets progressively more difficult as you complete each level. There are "Save" checkpoints within each puzzle so if you fall off the puzzle platform, you will restart at the last Save checkpoint. The problem with this is that as you move to the later levels, the puzzles become more difficult and the "Save" checkpoints become fewer and farther inbetween. This can lead to a lot of frustration when you end up having to re-do a large portion of a puzzle because there aren't as many "Save" checkpoints in it.
There are some hidden paths in a few of the puzzles. If you play the timed version of the puzzles, you can win different medal awards which don't give you anything in the game other than bragging rights.
You can do a search on YouTube for videos of solutions to a puzzle/level in the game. Some of the videos are just for the quickest way through the game which isn't always helpful but at least you know the levels can be solved.
Overall, if you enjoy puzzle games, I recommend Switchball for you.

Game Title: SwitchBall

Game Synopsis: You have four kinds of balls, marble ball, metal ball, power ball, and air ball. By using these four different balls you have to work through a maze, with obsticals in the way! You can interchange the four balls and certain points, and though the game may sound easy, watch out! It gets harder alomg the way as you solve more, and more puzzles! I think there's about 30 in all.

Game Category: Puzzle, Strategy

ESRB Rating: E

TagletGames Rating (TG Rating): ****

Average Community Rating: TBD

Retail Price: $9.97

Available At:

Pros: It has good graphics, and displays very well what would happen if you really rolled a ball up a ramp and pushed a box, or pushed a barrel off a hill. And it is a very fun game, with nice music.

Cons: It gets a LOT harder in the last few levels (in Lava world) and unfortunetly you can not jump ahead to the next level until you solve the one you are on.

While at first it may look like you're average ball roller, this is much more of a puzzle game than Marble Madness or Super Monkey Ball ever thought about being. With roughly 80% of the game completed the difficulty curve has been very smooth. For the most part the puzzles are physics based. None have been brain busters so far but once you know what it do it can be difficult to pull it off.

The background light techno is relaxing. Graphics are clean and attractive. The physics are very well done which is to be expected in a game built around them. There is no built in vsync option for this game and I got some noticeable screen tearing when I first loaded it up. After forcing vsync through the Nvida control panel (which can also be done in the ATI control panel) it looked great.

Long story short; the game is fun. I would recommend it.
