Red Ball 3 - Game Walkthrough all 1-20 lvl Boss fight
Welcome to the first in our Red Ball series, where we cover four different iterations of the Red Ball game, starting with Red Ball 3.
First off, it must be said that the game looks great. Sure,
you're just a rolling read ball with a perpetual smile glued to your face, but that doesn't meant that the graphics have to be simplistic. Well, they are simple, but there's a lot of detail and hard work that's gone into those graphics. Whereas a simple vector face would possibly do for the aforementioned ball, this game goes the extra mile by actually animating it, having the little guy blink every now and then or whatnot. The levels are likewise well designed. You'll be getting graphics easily at par with something from the Super Nintendo era, with all the wonderful colors and vibrant detail.
Gameplay is also something of a throwback to the old days of gaming. Controls are simple enough, you move around your red ball and you jump from platform to platform. It does take some getting used to though, as the rolling around and the inertia can make controls feel a bit floaty. Still, it's not too hard to get used to, and the game really eases you through with the first few levels. You won't even be up against any baddies, just you and the puzzle-filled terrain.
Speaking of puzzles, the game is a puzzle platformer's dream. Nothing is simple, and most of the puzzles and terrain will require you to navigate the level more than once. Sure, it's not quite as hard as Mario and it's certainly not Nintendo hard, but there is quite a great deal more challenge than one would expect from casual online games such as these. The major part of solving the puzzles is getting a grip as to how to accurately control the ball. With most platform games, moving about is fairly simple. You run, you move, and you jump. Here, you've got to take your inertia into account and, for lack of a better word, roll with it to achieve the best results. At times, it'll seem frustrating, but bear with it long enough and you'll get used to it.
Sadly, there aren't all that many levels in Red Ball 3. What levels there are though are very well designed and rather creative in their presentation. While you may be skimming along plains in one level, you'll be messing around with the Sphinx and pyramids in another. Other levels even add a bit more to the formula of rolling around and jumping by giving you control over machinery that you have to operate in order to finish the level. Each levels adds a new element to the gameplay, so you can be sure that you won't get bored easily. Sure, 20 levels is plenty, but each level is designed so well that by the end of the game one is left wanting more.
Luckily then for those looking forward to more Red Ball, there are three more games in the series, so stay tuned and we'll cover them for you!
