The Ball Competition

Posted by GG Goblin On November - 15 - 2010

Discover the secrets of ancient subterranean ruins with only a gold and metal shelled ball to aid you in this puzzle action PC game from Teotl Studios. We have two boxed copies to give away, complete with mouse mats.

 
Whilst working on the slopes of a dormant volcano in Mexico, 1940, the player gets stuck in a cavern that, as it turns out, contains ancient ruins that have been hidden for centuries. You also discover a strange artifact that gives you control over a gold and metal shelled ball. It is with this ball as your only tool, that you venture deeper into the volcano to reveal some of mankind’s greatest secrets.

 
With stunning graphics, innovative gameplay, puzzles to solve and zombies to squash, The Ball has been likened to Portal for it’s unique gameplay. Using the Unreal engine, the game started life as a short mod. This has now been extended to a full single player game with more than eight hours of gameplay. The boxed version of the game ships with an autographed developer postcard and a soundtrack CD.

    I would take a about 50 blocks of wood. I could turn the wood into sticks and mining picks and a crafting station. Then mine stone to make stone picks and an oven to smelt metal. Hopefully i could find some coal and metal and maybe diamond. With metal i would make a sword and some armour for the creepers. /minecraft
