OverviewOverview

Ball World Adventures is a rolling and balancing game where you move a marble through an obstacle course, like the classic Monkey Ball game. It's unusual not only for its dexterity challenge but the tactile feeling it creates as you roll along different materials. Each course has a different theme to it such as a cloud city, a factory and an underwater base.

You need good coordination skills and the ability to deftly use the controller sticks to tilt the world and manoeuvre the ball through holes, moving obstacles and along precariously narrow pathways. It is a game of trial and error, so be prepared to fail many times in order to learn the course.

It's a simple game that can be played by a wide age range of people. You can pick it up Ball World Adventures instantly. You also have the option to tackle any level in any order, so there is no danger of getting stuck and not able to see more of the game.

It's excruciatingly hard at times, but rewarding for those who persevere to learn the 13 different courses over two Part One and Part Two of the game in two separate Dreams:

You can turn off music during the game without needing to access a separate menu. You can also turn off some of the more distracting design elements in the game such as clouds or jumping fish at any time.

You play the game with just two sticks, but you do need buttons to access menu options.

The game does track your time on each level, but is low pressure as you can take as long as you like.
