Amazon Appstore Free App Of The Day – Chalk Ball

Share

The basic concept of Chalk Ball is all about math, physics, and quick thinking. How and where you draw the lines determines the angle that the ball will rebound. You have to be quick on the draw–if you just bounce the ball around randomly and try to keep it alive, you’ll quickly run out of chalk and the ball will drop. Game over!

First, pick a theme–Chalkboard, Notepad, or the newest one, the hip and retro 8 Bits. Next, decide what style of game you prefer: Survival or Adventure. Survival is the basic game–how long can you keep your ball in the air? As you get better, advance to higher levels of difficulty, topping out at Insane.

For a more involved game you can choose your own adventure, including Geometry Abduction, Zero-G, Chasing Badball, 2 Leagues Under the Sea, and more. Each offers different patterns of balls that you must remove. Progress through the adventure levels to complete your mission.
