About Red Ball
Ball games are popular for casual play due to the simple shape and gameplay that comes with bouncing and rolling them. This game is an easy-to-follow platforming game, it's just that the hero happens to be a ball. As you stare at its smiling face while playing, you may feel an urge to smile yourself which can help boost your mood. The more you make the ball roll and bounce in search of collectibles, the more your smile and joy may grow. It's as pleasing as playing with a ball in real life, it's just a bit more technical.
How to Play
Red Ball is a 2D platform game about a ball rolling and bouncing across levels using just the keyboard.
- W/Up Arrow - Jump
- A/Left Arrow - Roll Left
- D/Right Arrow - Roll Right
The goal of each level is to get the red ball to the flag at the end. Once you complete all the levels, you'll be able to unlock Endless Mode and see just how far and long you can roll. The ball has health in the form of hearts shown in the top left corner. If it loses all of them, it has to retry the level again.
While rolling, the red ball will encounter many elements. Wooden planks can be firm or loose and the latter allows the red ball to knock into them to move them around to form bridges and such. Objects like crates can be pushed around to be used as platforms in different spots. There are also hazards like spikes and enemies that hurt the ball on contact but things like pits and water traps will instantly drain all hearts. There are also stars to be collected which can increase your score and unlock different skins for the ball.
Tips and Tricks
Try to control your rolling so that you don't bump into things before you understand how you're supposed to use them. When pushing crates, you should know that wooden planks can't support them and they'll fall through.
