DX-Ball 2 like the original DX-Ball is an awesome breakout style game. It
isn't your typical style breakout game although the object of the game is the same which
is keep the ball from falling off the screen and clear all the blocks off the screen by
hitting them with the ball. This game is different because of all the objects that fall
when you break the bricks. The objects are expand paddle, shrink paddle, split ball, thru
brick, extra life, kill paddle, set-off exploding, level warp, shrink ball, fireball, zap
bricks, fast ball, shooting paddle, slow ball, super shrink, grab paddle, multiple
exploding, and falling bricks. You have to catch the objects with your paddle or they
don't do anything. As you can tell not all of the objects are good. The general rule is if
it has a red border it is bad, if it has a blue border it is good, and if it has a grey
border you will get mixed results.
You control this game with your mouse. The left mouse button releases the balls and shoots (when you have that option). There is an easy to play kid mode making this a great game for all ages. The main differences between the original and this one is that it runs better and is easier to use not to mention the different levels. The game is really free but you only get 4 levels in each of the six sets available (total of 24 levels). To get all 150 levels (25 levels in each of the 6 sets) you must register the program. This game requires DirectX.
