Madrid 4-02-2010

The Spanish game developer Virtual Toys has launched its latest creation, Spaceball: Revolution. This highly addictive arcade game is now available through Sony’s on-line distribution channel PlayStation® Store.

The game

Spaceball Revolution has cool, eye-catching 80’s retro graphics and a funky soundtrack to keep you in the winning zone.

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 player will activate or deactivate squares of the grid upon contact.

Spaceball: Revolution has been designed in a very wide range of players, adapting the gameplay accurately so you never get bored. It begins at a simple level and reaches up to 15 levels of increasing difficulty for the most competitive.

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!

As if the obstacles and enemies arenot 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!
