Doodle Balls

Posted: September 22, 2010 in 2 Hearts, Uncategorized

What can I say, I like video games that take the hand drawn approach. So I found a game called Doodle Balls on AddictingGames. Doodle Balls is puzzle game based on knocking red balls out of a pattern comprised of red and white balls using a cannon. There’s a bucket down at the bottom of the screen that the player controls. In order to get a good score, you need to catch the red balls and not the cannon ball that you shot. Every time you have cleared the screen, a new arrangement appears and the red balls are worth more points. There is a time limit for the entire game, so its a pretty fast play. The time limit is 3 minutes and it doesn’t start counting down until you click, so you can read the instructions for as long as you’d like.

The graphics are cute and have a very cartoony feel to them. The background music is good, a fantasy techno track on a loop. It might get annoying in large doses but its pretty good for a the short run of the game.

My complaint about this game is that there is no way to increase the timer that I have been able to find. This is more than just slightly annoying. It makes playing rather frustrating because once you start getting into the swing of things, the game is over and you have to start again.

So the final rating is a 2. It was moderately fun, but the music got annoying and the game goes by far too quickly.

If you want to play it. There you go.
