DX Ball. Probably one of the best bat and ball game around on the PC.
DX Ball has a very simple objective and that is to destroy all the bricks on the screen with
a little ball and get the highest score. If you miss the ball with your bat you loose a life.
Sounds simple. But here's the fun side to it. There's different type of bricks that have a
strange behaviour when you hit it. Some give you good power ups, some give bad, some explode
causing big chain reactions! When you get the taste of having laser cannons mounted on your bat,
you can't wait to get it again. As you progress through the levels you will need to be quick at
the hand and a blocking killing instinct as the levels get more dynamic with different patterns
of behaviour blocks.
This game can be rather fun and annoying. It will start get annoying on the hard levels when
you have one brick left. You'd wish you had some power up to get rid of it. You could be hitting
the ball for over 10 minutes yet that one brick is still there. There's no password systems to
get to the level where you left off.
Overall this is a good game for all you bat and ball fans. But you'll sooner or later want to
play something different as you can rather sick of repeating the same old levels.
