JohnBAs anyone who's worked in an office knows, staving off boredom is your primary objective. Enter Binball Wizard, a simple flash game similar to Cyrkam Airtös. All you have to do is kick a ball into a trash bin located somewhere in the office. Control the power, height and direction of the ball and smash objects in the room. Then sit back, finish your coffee, then maybe file that TPS report when you have time.

Hitting the bin is either an exercise in sheer luck or binballing skill. You can bounce the ball off any object, but sometimes you just have to shoot blindly. Trial and error are the keys, taking shots and adjusting speed and direction very slightly to get it to the goal.

The game is part of, a job search engine based in the United Kingdom. There are a few optional survey questions at the beginning of the game and a few promotional links at the end, but in-between it's all game. Ten levels of binballing wizardry, to be more precise.

Analysis: The game's presentation is very simple and intuitive: just move the mouse and click a button. That frees up your time to experiment with kicking the ball around the office. Sometimes it's more fun to smash everything in sight, so be sure to take that detour after you've become a binballing wizard.

The ball-bouncing physics sometimes feel a little soft, but not so much to be completely unnatural. The last level was quite a bit more difficult because of the collision detection, but it's the last level, so I suppose that's the point. Overall the game is quite well-balanced and a good diversion. Combine it with a healthy dose of Cyrkam Airtös and I'm set for the afternoon.

Binball Wizard is an excellent time waster, perfect for the cubicle-bound or anyone looking to have a little fun.


Thanks to Bj8rn for letting us know about this one!


Ill have to say :P to them putting the bin in the glass office. Its almost a matter of chance then :\ Fun though. I think the other more popular office bin game requires more skill. This was a lot like a mini-golf game so that was good too.


It's much easier to get the hang of this than Cyrkam Airtos, although level 10, as you mentioned, is very difficult.

Hey. I just thought I'd tell you the image isn't coming up on this one for me. Thats all. -MANAX


I can't believe they would copy such a good song for the title. Well, they didn'y copy it, but they only changed one letter. I mean, Pinball Wizard is the best song EVER!!!!!!!


Made level 10 just after time, ending up with a score of -1 x 7 for -7! Bounced it off the wall to your left first to get it through the door.
