IncaBall

Game Description: Destroy the balls by getting 3 or more of the same color in a row. Don't let them reach the skull!

How to Play IncaBall:

  • Slide the pad back and forth with your mouse along the bottom of the game screen.
  • Click the left mouse button to shoot the colored ball from the pad.
  • Your goal is to create matches of 3 or more balls of the same color to destroy them. Make sure to stop the balls before they reach the skull!
  • Destroy all balls to reach the next level. (You must do this several times, on each level, before you may advance.)
  • You begin the game with 3 lives.
  • Lose 1 life each time you fail to stop the balls from reaching the skull.
  • There are 28 fun-filled levels of play.
  • After completing some levels, the game will ask if you want to download a full version of the game. If you wish to play for free, just click Continue, and play for free here on Richard's Game Reviews.
  • I am not sure, but I think it may be possible to save a game in progress, if you use the same computer and come back here to Richard's Game Reviews. I have tried this a couple of times after publishing the game, and my game automatically saved each time. But, I am not completely sure this will always work. But, hopefully your game will save too.

IncaBall Game Options:
  • To pause the game, click the Menu button located at the upper right corner of the game screen. To continue your game, click Resume.
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the Sound On/Off button. This button is accessed by clicking the Menu button located at the upper right corner of the game screen.

IncaBall Playing Tips:
  • Make sure your mouse cursor remains within the game screen. If your cursor goes off of the game screen you will be unable to shoot your ball.
  • IncaBall will always show you the next available ball. (You will see the next ball displayed at the bottom of the game screen). Pay attention to this. Knowing what ball comes next can help you plan your next shot.
  • Watch for multicolored balls. A multicolored ball can destroy balls of more than one color.
  • Sometimes the ball in the pad does not have a clear shot at two adjoining balls of the same color. There are four things you can do. One option would be to wait until you do have a clear shot. (Only use this option if the wait will be very short). A second option would be to fire at a ball of the same color. Now you have two adjoining balls for that color. The next time this colored ball appears in the pad you may be able to shoot this group of two. A third option exists if you have a clear path to the top of the game screen without any balls blocking your way to the top. In that case, simply slide the pad and fire toward the top of the game screen. The ball will exit through the top of the game screen and not add to the number of balls that you need to destroy. Finally, a fourth option, which is sometimes available, would be not to fire the ball currently in the pad, but instead, to swap it with the next available ball. To make this swap, click the next available ball displayed at the bottom of the game screen. (This swap is only possible if the two balls are different colors. If the two balls are the same color no swap is possible. You will have to fire the current ball in the pad before you can get to the next ball).
  • Look for combinations. For instance, if you have the following sequence of balls: yellow, yellow, blue, blue, yellow, and yellow; you could fire a blue ball at the two adjoining blue balls and all 6 balls will be destroyed! (Your shot would take out the 2 blue balls because the blue ball you fired from the pad creates a match of 3 blue balls. And, the 2 yellow balls to the left of the 2 blue balls, would join with the 2 yellow balls to the right, forming a combination of 4 yellow balls). Once you become a little bit experienced with IncaBall you will easily learn how to recognize these combinations.

Richard's Rating: 4 out of 5.

Pro: IncaBall is pure fun!

Con: Although I believe this is a very rare occurrence, sometimes the game will freeze and you must helplessly watch as the balls advance into the skull. I tested this game for a couple of hours just to see if I could make it all the way through all 28 levels and the game did freeze on me on level 23. I don't think this happens very often... but just beware!
