Bouncing Balls is an arcade game in which your goal is to form groups of 3 or more balls of the same color so that they can be destroyed. You will discover that multiple rows of color balls will slowly move downward from the top and you have to move your mouse to change the direction of the launcher ball.Bouncing Balls is a puzzle game developed by Novel Games. It is a simple Flash animation that combines the match-3 puzzle mechanics with brick-breaking action in a colorful game that is suitable for all ages.
When you start off you will see a sort of platform with colored balls that moves down slowly. With the shooter at the bottom of the screen you need to point and shoot in order to create groups of at least three balls of the same color. When three balls are combined, they will disappear from the screen; the idea is to remove all the balls before the platform reaches the ground. That way you will make it to the next level, where a faster and more challenging game awaits you.
Controls are very simple: you move the shooter left/right and point with your mouse, and shoot with a click. More points are obtained if you manage to create groups of more than three balls, also if you clear the screen fast. The ultimate goal is to survive as long as possible to obtain a great score, which you can then publish on the online rankings or even share with your friends in Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace.
The game has a lively interface full of colors. From the gear icon at the top of the screen you can choose to play in full screen mode and adjust the game's sound and music volume.
All in all, Bouncing Balls entertains for a short while, but its simplicity can be a bit disappointing. It is just a nice little game to play when you have a few minutes to spare.
