A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Space Ball is a new take on the overdone Space Invaders and Pinball formulas. In Spaceball the ball can either be shot at the invaders directly or ricochet into the launcher for precision. The key to success is in balancing and mastering these two skills.

Use the arrows or S & D to move the paddles or aim the scope.

All of this game (music, code, physics engine, etc) was made in 48 hours by Fraser Lee for the 2017 GMTK game jam.

Apologies about the physics. 


The current build's restart button sometimes doesn't show up, if this happens to restart close and reopen. Sorry about that.

Also if you encounter the error "A Java Exception Has Occurred" I'm working on a dedicated windows version but for now try Upgrading to the latest version of Java or use the compatibility version.
