I've been under the weather for several days, so I'm taking a break from posting any reviews over the next few days or so; I'll still moderate, but sporadically. Todays' game I'd already posted last month.

In Brief:
Falco Ball 3D was created by the developers own game engine. It's never been given away here before, but I have seen it elsewhere over the years.

It's a simple game where you have to keep the ball up in the air for as long as you can. Click on the lower part of the ball using the left mouse button by placing the red reticule correctly to make it bounce, then keep clicking on the same spot to keep it from hitting the ground. If it hits the ground, you lose and have to press R to restart the game.

Each round scores the number of times you 'kick' the ball and how long you kept the ball in the air. Your best score is kept as a record; however, this isn't permanent. whenever you restart the game after leaving the best score is reset to zero.

You can see a video of game play HERE
Conclusion:
There's is very limited game play, with just the one thing to keep doing over and over trying to get your best score. It's okay as a coffee break game, but not one I'd play for extended periods. It's something I'd play in between bigger and more involved games just to take a break. There's little skill involved once you've sussed where to place the reticule on the lower part of the football.

My Screen capture programs (Ashampoo Snap 12 and Microsoft's Snipping Tool} would not allow me to take any screen captures so I took some from the video I've linked to above and which was originally posted by Falcoware.

The game could be improved with some additional tasks added; it could also be a game the family could play for short periods where you compete to see who can get the best score. This would be much improved if you could also keep a permanent record of the top score and include a profile page where the whole family and friends could sign in and keep a record of their individual scores, much like I used to do with friends when playing various pinball games like 3d Ultra Pinball: Creep Night & 3d Ultra Pinball: Thrill Ride. We'd spend all night taking turns, trying to beat each other's scores, then ride into work regretting staying up all night (:em>I worked as a motorcycle courier at the time for Pony Express). You can get both of those pinball games for free from various abandonware sites such as My Abandonware.

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 51 antimalware engines. You can see the installed games scan HERE

I have seen talent competitions on television where someone has a "hackey sack" or foot bag and the objective is to keep it in the air for a long time without it touching the ground. Competition for skill is normally a solo person but multiple people can play at once as I've seen people play this game before at parks. You can see what I mean here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacky_sack

This game kind of reminds me of that trying to keep a sports object in the air. You just have to keep clicking, clicking and more clicking on order to rack up a better score.

It's just done in a simple 3D area type setting and there is really nothing more to do here then just kick the ball around.

A warning on today's game. To get a playable game your graphics card should be fairly decent. Unfortunately my Graphics card, while it was able to run this game, it was rather low FPS most of the time and the mouse lagged a bit so I was not able to get a fair shake at todays' giveaway.

If the sport of Foot Bag still piques your interests, there is a game called California Games on NES and also Sega Genesis which has this sporting event. If you're good enough on the NES version of the game you can rack up a really high score in a hurry while the Sega Genesis version ramps up the difficulty quite a bit.

Overall today I'd say this is a "fidget around with it if you're bored" kind of game with no other real meaning.
