Slick Ball

Slick BallI stumbled upon this Shockwave demo of a larger standalone game product called Slick Ball, created by a German company named Procontis.

The object of Slick Ball is to roll the ball around the platformed environment, making your way through the maze to the end of the level. Obstacles and puzzles stand in your way, like finding a switch to open a gate that blocks your path. The gameplay is very similar to the classic game of Marble Madness, however Slick Ball's graphics are 3D rendered and photorealistic.

With there being only one playable level to the game, I would have passed on posting it here since I try to highlight only games and gadgets that I feel are exceptional for one reason or another. But when I started up the game and began to move the ball around, my jaw dropped from its excellent Director 3D implementation. I have had some experience writing 3D simulations in Director, so I am aware of some of the problems in creating a game like this.

The game is easy to get started playing, however all of the in-game text is in German. Just remember that "Spiel Starten" means start game. To move the ball, simply use the arrow keys on the keyboard. The X key will change camera views.

Also, use the space bar to brake the ball.

That's a very handy tip to know, as my ball kept falling off the track while trying to stabilize it. Thanks David! =)
