Gardenball (for Windows and Mac)
June 9, 2012

Pot the ball in to the hole! Guide your ball to the end of the level by choosing the correct path. Be careful as the levels have several obstacles that you need to avoid. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that get you inexorably hooked, like playing tetris. This game is no exception.

A simple but classic concept mixed with some very delicately timed skill sections.

  1. I wont be posting a review today; I’m still not 100% and I’m exhausted after my cross country visit to a pain management specialist on Thursday. I’ll endeavor to moderate throughout the day, but it won’t be as regularly as I usually moderate.

    Today’s game giveaway is a Wheemplay game; most of you know what to expect with these flash based and usually simple games. You get 40 levels of simple puzzles from a download of 7.14MB. This unpacks to the usual read me and a dual activation and set up module.

    By default Wheemplay games install directly into the C: \Games\ folder with no folder of their own included. If this is the case today you can easily create one yourself by adding the name of the game to the end of the path during the installation wizards run.

    i.e.

    C:\Games\Gardenball\

    There is a levels editor included with today’s game so if you find this game entertaining you will be able to extend the game play by creating your own levels and maybe even sharing them with the giveaway community by posting links to your uploaded creations. :) (You’d have to upload to one of the free upload sites like Gamefront – formerly Filefront to share them with the community)

    For those interested Steam has a Paradox Interactive sale on at the moment with 50% off all of their titles/franchises (Magika, Hearts of Iron II & III, Victoria I & II, Mount & Blade, Elven Legacy, East India company, Ship simulator Extremes, Cites in motion, King Arthur, Penumbra plus others. Most of their games are strategy or simulation games. At least one Franchise a day is 75% off. At the moment the Mount & Blade games are 75% off. Today’s 24 hour deal is Hacker Evolution: Duality with 70% off.

    Alawar has changed it’s free game of the month to Land of Runes and Realores game is Turtle Odyssey.

    You’ll also find loads of sale items via the didimatic site (thugh there are a couple more sites that list even more games but I’ve lost the links):

  2. When I went to this URL, my anti-virus software found four trojans …

    …………………Moderator comment………………..

    The game has been tested by the giveaway team and is 100% safe. As I’ve mentioned many times before, the giveaway team have never posted a game that has contained malware since the start of this project back in 2006.

    I appreciate that you’ve posted this warning, but please don’t let that stop you downloading this game, the game isn’t the same as the website.

  3. Bad Idea comparing a game to smoking crack
    (In the description of the product)

    …………………Moderator comment……………….

    I agree. I was going to contact them about that, but am still ill, so never got around to it only saw the game was being posted yesterday.

    I’ll have to see if I’m able to edit the description.
