Game Introduction

This game uses inertia and gravity to simulate how an actual ball in a maze would roll, under real-life conditions. This is what makes this game fun to play.

The player selects one of four difficulty choices. Once the player completes all of the mazes within the chosen area, the game is over. In this game you rotate the maze to allow a ball to fall within it. The fewer walls it hits the faster it goes.

There are both positive and negative points in the game and time and bonuses can be found within the mazes. When the ball is stuck or the player would like to speed up, the Jump button can be used. If you run out of time prior to reaching the goal, a random matching game is run to allow you more time to complete the maze. This challenge, however, is very difficult to win.
