Old Skool Game Refreshed...

I'm sure all the 80's babies out there would recalled playing Arkanoid, a game where you needed to deflect a ball using a bar to clear rows of colored bricks, & getting powers along the way..

Well, the old skool game is back - in 3D this time around! Yup, its none other than Magic Ball 3. Packed with stunning graphics and 80 over levels to complete, one can really get addicted to it, eager to complete each level to see what kinda scene comes up next.

There are 4 themes of 20 levels each, starting from pirates, moving to Halloween, Wild West after that, and finally Medieval. From sharks circling pirate ships to witches having a party, to cowboys, to princess and castles, each scene is eye-catching, humorous even. What makes it even better is the effect when your ball hits them. Instead of the conventional disappering bricks, see pirates ships break, sharks split in half, castle tumbles, animals fall, exploding animations that sure have our inner devils smiling with glee.

Not to forget the various power-ups in the form of lasers, machine guns, inflated ball, spiked ball that will most definitely speed up any destructions. Also, natural disaster power-ups such as lighting & meteor strikes, earthquakes, strong wind, all lending a hand. Of coz there are some negative powers that will caused your spaceship-like bar to break into pieces, and also one that turns day into nite, making it harder to see.

All in all, its a great way to spend time and having fun while you're at it. Just don't get too engrossed and ending up sitting in front of the PC the whole day like I almost did =P ....
