Do not allow evil spirits to get to you.

Zball is a physics puzzle game. The goal is always the same - deliver the green ball to the green platform, but the ways change. Blocks can have different properties, some are destroyed when colliding with other objects or from an explosion, some are monolithic but mobile, some moves the green ball.

Usually there is no specific algorithm of actions, you should rely only on your intuition to solve the problem. Every new level is more difficult. Some require dexterity and reaction, some will require patience and caution, others will make you think about the sequence of actions. You can see how to interact with an object by the color of the block. For example, green is the main ball, and you need to deliver it to the platform of the corresponding color. Yellow reacts to explosions from mouse clicks. Blue objects are destroyed when they collide with yellow ones. Blue ones are not destructible, but they can be moved by yellow objects. Red breaks down from the explosion… Gradually you will understand how the system works and will be able to pass all levels

Exciting gameplay will not let you get bored! To the victory!

ZBall
In Brief
A physics based puzzle game with elements of pool (vague)
The Game
This is not Z-Ball, an excellent breakout released 18 years ago. Today's offering is a casual physics based puzzle game where you have to move the green balls to the green area on each level by hitting the yellow balls with your mouse pointer. Hit them in the right point to get the balls to move the green ball or knock down barriers made up of movable bricks so that the green ball has a clear run to the green area. Levels get increasingly complex as you progress through the levels. Once a level is unlocked you can replay it any time.
A positive thing about these Falcoware games that we have been getting on a regular basis during the weekdays Monday to Friday since November 2018 is that they have removed the Falcoware installer which used to open your browser to the Falcoware home page every time you closed the game down and always started with an advert while the game was booting up. The only time you are redirected to Falcoware's home page now is when you first install the game. there is no adware included with their games now, just the registered version of the game.
The game was released on Steam last week, but there are no community reviews of the game yet. You can see a short video of game play via the store page HERE.
The game includes 40 levels with physics related puzzles. Graphics are quite basic and there is little in the way of different style bricks, basically most of the bricks are the same square shape; the only difference is the colour of the bricks. Some bricks are immovable, others can be moved when hit by either colour of ball.

The main game screen is interactive. Start clicking around and you will see what I mean. You can also make the balls that are flying across the screen change their trajectory if you're fast enough.

Happy to see such a game as I am not much into the shooting type games. This downloaded and installed without issue on Win10HomeX64. There are no instructions but there are few options and it is easy to understand what to do. The game is mouse controlled and I'd describe it as simple to play, difficult to master.

One question if anyone knows. The game opens in full screen and there is no option to modify that however, one time it opened in windowed mode and I have no clue how that happened! No biggie, just very curious how/why that happened.

Thank you to the 334Sgame and GOTD teams and, as always, to Whiterabbit-uk. Stay safe, all! Wear your masks. :-)

JardaH,

Check the event logs to see if there is any more information. Are you running a 32 bit operating system?

"%1 is not a valid Win32 application."

Runs fine in Win7 Ult 32-bit VM -- *might* be due to running in XP or Vista?

When you install it you get about 6 other program links for other games cluttering up your desktop.
I didn't see anywhere in the install instructions about the program install about the program installing 5 other program links on my desktop. I deleted it and all of the program links. This is very sneaky of them.

bob,

Hi Bob, every free game site does the same. All of these games are commercial games, but the developers agree to allow them to be given away free. In exchange, they earn money by including adverts and browser redirections, but these Falcoware games have had the Falcoware installer that includes the low level adware removed, so we don't get any adverts or browser redirections once the game has been installed.
The shortcuts installed on the desktop do not affect your system and can simply be deleted with no effect on the game.
This has been a common feature of most free game sites since the financial crisis of 2008, which led to many small developers going into liquidation because casual game prices crashed from an average of $20 to $4 - $6 virtually overnight.
You'll probably find that if you've read the EULA, you've agreed to those shortcuts being installed.

As WR points out, it's common, but FalcoWare also adds 8 icon &/or shortcut files in Program Files or Program Files (x86), if that matters to you.
