"Ignite your inner soccer flame with Boostball!"
You're in control of boostball. Knock your rivals out of the way and win the tournament! Tilt your device left and right as you guide boostball past enemies and into the goal! Collect powerups to smash anything that comes in your way! This isn't your mother's soccer, this is boostball!
Not ready to go for the Tournament? Try your hand at the never-ending Training mode! See how long you can last!
Compare your scores with your friends (or enemies) with OpenFeint score integration.
You'll never look at plain boring soccer the same ever again!
Nicely done, albeit hampered game.
Boost Ball's gameplay is one that can be traced back to the driving games of the early 80s. In this case given a Football/Soccer theme.
The primary objective of the game is to hit the boost pads to keep your speed up. But miss one and your speed drops heavily; to the point where for the rest of the game you're constantly wondering if you'll make it to the next boost, even if you never miss another. There seems to be little recovery from this.
The other problem with the game...
Starting a game. Restarting a game. Going back to the main menu. BB always seems to need to load something. Until you get a feel for the game and can last longer than a few seconds, you'll be spending more time staring at the load screen than anything else.
Those things aside, Boost Ball is a nicely made game. Whimsical presentation, controls well.
AWESOME take on Traditional Soccer!
This is a very unique game that gives a different take on how we all play soccer. Instead of trying to shoot the ball into a single goal, you are instead compelled to tilt you device, roll over the arrows to make your ball go faster, collect FIRE to hit the goalie players and get bonuses, and collect coins to increase your score. At the end of every level there is a goal that you have to get through in order to proceed to the next level. In short, Boost Ball is a very compelling game with a unique and outstanding take on American Soccer, that will keep you coming back for more time and time again. My score was 4985 on level 3, see if you can beat that! AWESOME GAME! GREAT PRICE! OUTSTANDING INTERFACE! THANKS!
Fútbol on Crack! 8^)
Actually this game is more in the tradition of Cabanalt or Doodle jump, in that it's a distance game.
That said: I love Boostball. It's got such great graphics and the gameplay is fine-tuned, balanced and seriously fun.
It's got very diverse levels that seamlessly flow together. The soccer theme really fits well and brings a purpose to your travels.
OpenFeint is excellently integrated in this overall winner. Kudos Blacksmith Games.
Btw, hurry and catch Plushed a very wonderful platformer that the same devs designed it from the ground up for the iDevice. It's free celebrating the release of Boostball!
