Hazard Ball 1.2 | 2.81 MB
Hazard Ball obviously owes a debt to those old puzzles; you control a ball in a maze, controlling it with the arrow keys; it has a degree of momentum, and the longer you hold a key down, the faster it goes, which is useful getting up ramps and such. Points are earned for collecting (running into) jewels and other objects, and there's the whole panoply of things you expect in straightforward videogames: gates opened with keys found elsewhere, powerups that give you special ability, hazards, moving opponents who try to damage you or knock your ball into a hole or opening into space.
New features are added with each level, and while there's certainly a 'twitch' element to the game, it's accessible even to those of us who don't excel at games of that type, since careful motion is more important than reaction speed and mastery of the controls--more of a puzzle than an action game, in the final analysis.
