DescriptionJezzBall Classic is an enhanced remake of the original 1992 JezzBall and aims to be exactly the same, just with higher resolution and frame rate. Optional extra graphics are also available.
Two Jezz atoms are bouncing around in a capture chamber. The player's job is to deploy wallbuilders in vertical or horizontal directions until over 75% of the chamber has been filled with walls. If pending walls are hit by an atom they are destroyed and a life is lost. Each wall is built as two parts from the deployment location, if one half is destroyed the other could still make it to an already existing wall and thereby successfully become solid. When a level is complete the player moves on to the next, where another atom enters the chamber. The final level is 50.
JezzBall Classic also features missions (which works similar to achievements) and rooms (stand-alone challenges or puzzles). In addition there are many mods available that can be combined in different ways to create unique game modes. Several pre-defined combinations are provided, version 2.0.1 comes with 23 named presets (including the original unmodded game). High scores are saved into a top list, which also keeps track of the each game's stats (such as how long a game took). Level records are also kept track of and are comparable between the four local profiles available, one of which are reserved for guest players.
Controls are extensively customizable, supporting playing with both a touchscreen and a traditional mouse. Graphics have many settings as well, ranging from hundreds of random background images to different wallbuilder destruction animations. Max resolution is 7168x3840 and framerate can be set anywhere between 1-120. Each individual sound event is fully modifiable, both in volume and sample. On PC it is possible to add custom background images into the available pool and new sounds or music can be added as well.
One of the mods ("Wallcrawler") changes the deployment of walls to become more QIX-like. Instead of deploying walls at a specific location you take direct control of a wallbuilder and deploy wall behind you. Another mod ("Drawing Walls") makes it so that you draw the path of the wallbuilders using your finger/mouse instead of using the default deployment behaviour.
