SpaceBall Revolution now available on WiiWare(TM)

Madrid, September 15th 2009

The Spanish game developer Virtual Toys has launched its latest creation, Spaceball Revolution. This highly addictive arcade game is now available through Nintendo’s on-line distribution channel WiiWare TM

Jesús Iglesias, Creative Director at Virtual Toys, says;“Basic shooter elements and dozens of innovative concepts combined with a puzzle format makes Spaceball  evolution an unique arcade game, offering the player one of the most addictive and intense experiences of the moment. The game also features worldwide rankings and it is prepared to expand its content with new levels coming in the future”.

The Game

Fifteen devilishly challenging levels will test the player in making near-impossible patterns with the help of space energy balls. Time and trajectory-blocking obstacles become the players´ nemesis, taking their ability, dexterity and concentration to new limits.

The goal is to finish the different levels of the game by copying the shapes that are shown at the back of the screen. In order to copy the shown image, energy balls, thrown by the Wii Remote™, will activate or deactivate squares of the grid upon contact.

Time is crucial, and that is proven in this Virtual Toys’ game because the player has a limited time to achieve each shape. After each successful shape, a new pattern is generated making the challenge even more difficult.

Throughout the fifteen levels of the game, new obstacles appear including cubes, hoops, laser rays, asteroids, cylinders, pendulums and balls! Each obstacle has unique properties, like being static, mobile, invisible, destroyable and indestructible. The player has to remember every behaviour pattern to evade the obstacles on each throw, ensuring there is maximum time to replicate each shape! The challenges for the players are relentless and they can choose to play the game in two ways: challenge mode, with four different difficulty levels (‘easy’ to‘expert’) or multi-player mode, where two intrepid players challenge each other in a split-screen sabotaging frenzy!

As if the obstacles and enemies are not challenging enough, many“special effects” will make your journey to the end of the game even more difficult, with sudden spins of the world, auto-balls and cosmic cameras all out to disrupt the player’s aim!
