Introducing - FizzBall!

After the success of gold star game Professor Fizzwizzle, Grubby Games have not been idle. Their latest creation is the Arkanoid-like FizzBall, which (while very different in style) features the star of their previous game, the titular Professor himself. Still aimed at kids and big kids alike, this game is too good to just sit on the Bytten Review Queue without some mention now.

A typical, mayhem-infused level.The premise is simple enough - the Professor and his FriendBots are visiting the islands when they notice that the animals are all going hungry. The Professor decides to collect them all up and look after them in his animal sanctuary, using his new invention, the FizzBall. Along the way the mystery deepens!

I said earlier that this game is Arkanoid-like. This is not entirely accurate - yes, the main aspect of the game is that you break through boxes and fences and so on by bashing the FizzBall against them, but there is much more to it than that. In order to collect all the animals, you need to first make the FizzBall bigger - and to do this, you need to start by collecting *small* things, like acorns. There are too many other features to mention here!

Look at the rescued animals in the sanctuary!A full review of FizzBall will appear in the course of time, but in the meantime, take my word for it - this game is amazing, addictive and a sure winner with young and old alike.
