Cut Down The Play Area In These Action Puzzle Games

The goal is to divide the play area into smaller and smaller chunks. The challenge lies in that there's something bouncing around to get in your way as you cut up the area. The style was originally introduced by Qix, and popularized further by JezzBall.

Dig!

Dig!

Crescent Moon Games

Join Douglas Chase as he digs up his backyard in search of treasures and fame!

*** iPhone 3GS not supported ***

Douglas Chase is a not so great archeologist working for a failing museum. He must dig up objects to save his job and the museum as well.
 Nigel the mummy will be out to get Douglas, but don’t worry, Nigel’s sense of direction is not so great (too many years buried in a tomb will do that), however if Nigel does touch your digging line, all heck will break loose!

Many more enemies will join Nigel so collect hats (magic hats of course!), that will help Douglas along his adventure digging deeper and deeper to the center of the earth…

Inspired by the arcade game “QiX”, Dig! is a fast paced game which requires quick changes of direction and strategy to dig out 75% of each level to complete. Different enemies will add to the difficulty however Nigel will always be close by, wandering around as he does. Collect artefacts for money to help the museum and to buy power-ups and hats. Collect exhibit pieces to put into the museum and earn a paycheck for Douglas.


Description:

•Quick arcade action.
•Interesting areas to unearth.
•Power ups!
•Hats! (that give perks!)
•Unusual enemies; Nigel the mummy, moles with fezzes and many more!
•Artifacts to collect.
•Museum collections to find.
•Colorful 3D art.
•Great soundtrack.
•Appropriate for all ages.

JezzBall Classic

JezzBall Classic

Marcus Bjuhr

JezzBall Classic was created to be just like how the original JezzBall was 25 years ago! The graphics, the sound, the scoring, the physics, the tempo... they are all the same as they were in the original. Of course there are improvements as well; for example there's a much higher frame rate and fixed glitches. Plus a lot of bonus stuff, such as new game modes!


Gameplay:

In JezzBall there are a number of Jezz atoms that bounces around. Your task is to build walls that contain them in as small space as possible. When over 75% of the playarea is built upon the current level is completed and you move on to the next where another Jezz atom is added into play.

Press down to place the origin of the wall, move to determine the orientation of the wall and release to actually start building it. The wall is constructed in two directions from the center, if a wall-half is hit by a Jezz atom before it has reached an already existing wall it is destroyed and you lose a life.


Features:

+ The original JezzBall experience! Into the very last detail; if you came looking for the JezzBall you remember you will not be disappointed!

+ Four profiles (one reserved for guests) with their configurations stored separately.

+ 700 beautiful background images (real life photos). Go to the "Graphics" config screen to enable it. Will place a random image into the black walls each level.

+ 8 music tracks of classic MIDI tunes you'll probably remember! All recorded using SoundBlaster 16. You can set up to 24 music audio events if you want to.

+ 60 fully customizable SFX audio events - change which sample(s) to play or change individual volumes. A pool of 300 sounds are available from various old games.

+ Automatic saving of all games in progress. Stop and continue whenever you want to!

+ Local high score lists. In the Hall of Fame your name will last forever and on the three other lists you will see the daily, weekly and monthly high scores.

+ Level records. All your best statistics are saved on each and every level you complete. Profile records are comparable.

+ Smart and very customizable controls. If you have a touchscreen you can play using your fingers.

+ 83 mods that once activated changes how the game is played! Use none or pick one/several at the same time in any order. High scores and level records are stored separately for each combination. Some mods will just change the amount of time/lives you have while other will drastically change gameplay (allow you to use two wallbuilders at the same time for example).

+ 22 preset mod-combinations are provided in addition to the original JezzBall experience to give you variation.

+ 100 rooms that will stimulate your intellect as well as your ability to time your deployments! Can you solve them?

+ There are also missions available to inspire you to break your personal bests. Completing them all is an achievement!


If you enjoyed similar games like Qix, Xonix, Barrack or KBounce you will love JezzBall Classic! It may not be near as well-known as the biggest arcade puzzle games but JezzBall stands its ground as one of the most addicting ones and I promise you will find JezzBall Classic both challenging and enjoyable.


+ Do you wish to try the game before you buy it? There is a lite version available!

+ The game is also available for PC on winterdust.com if you'd like to play with a mouse.


Good luck containing those Jezz atoms!
