Description

Launch OddBalls from a cannon in this crazy physics based puzzle game! Bounce off walls, float in fans and bend around magnets to solve tricky puzzles using real physics. One OddBall bounces, one floats and the other is made of heavy metal. Combine these traits with special powerups to guide the OddBalls through challenging puzzle rooms. Collect energy points and progress through a facility full of obstacles. Uncover the secret storyline about the OddBalls and leave no OddBall behind!

History

Starting as a physics gameplay experiment, OddBalls began as a project for Graham to learn the Unity3D engine. After refining it with months of testing and tweaking, OddBalls eventually grew into a fully featured game with a good mix of fun and challenging puzzles. As a one-man indie developer working alone in his spare time, Graham saw the potential of OddBalls and decided to hunker down and finish it. Over the span of the next couple of years Graham kept his day job but spent every weekend, evening, and lunch hour working on the game. OddBalls was finally completed and released in May of 2013 as Graham's first indie game launch!
