UK vacuum sweeper manufacturer, Dyson, has just released a new Flash game to promote their brand new line of cleaners. Similar in quality to their Telescope game previously highlighted here, The Ball Game is an action arcade game in which the player guides a yellow ball to the goal in each level.

Using just the arrow keys for navigation and the space bar to brake, the object is to avoid all walls and obstacles while trying to find the goal hidden within each maze-like level, and all in the shortest time possible. Each level increases in complexity and difficulty, and the game saves your progress so you can pick up later where you left off, or try to best your previous scores. Three difficulty modes support various player skill sets, and more is yet to come.

Once you complete all 10 levels, the game announces there are more power-ups coming as well as tournaments to challenge your friends, and even a level editor to create your own levels. Will have to keep an eye on this one.

A shout out to Chris for suggesting the game.

If you're having trouble playing this game, make sure you have the latest Flash player installed. I have played it on my PC and my Mac with no trouble at all.

I really liked the game. The movement was very err.....controllable.

Would anybody care to elaborate on how to pass 11? I deativate the first two switches but there's no geometrically feasible way to step on the third! (the one in the middle of the box)

Just completed this game - couldn't tear myself away - but fortunately it only takes about 30-45 mins.

To do level 11 - get the switch in the top left of the main arena, then go bottom left for the second, and finally follow the path at top right for the third switch.

There's a room at middle right that remains locked. It's either a secret or bonus or a left over - I couldn't unlock it either.

To do level 12 - just go up, grab the switch, back down and take the right hand path.

To do level 17 - go right, into the rotating wheel, grab the switch, and then back to the left hand side and into the wheel again.

rotating wheel tips - timing, and speed helps. pick your angle, and remember one wall is moving out of the way while you go through. You can also circle in the middle while you pick your moment.

I found the hardest levels were 9 to 12, then after that it got very easy.

A very good game considering it came out in 2005! At the end it promises more updates, but I really don't think that will happen.
