Description

In Anchor Ball the player controls a stick man with an anchor. The aim is to swing the anchor in order to keep a football in the air. If the ball touches the ground again, all points are lost. For every successful hit the player gets one point and even five points are earned when the ball hits a gold coin in the air. After having gained ten points the player is able to activate a shield which will automatically kick the ball back into the air. The player enters automatically the next level after a timer reaches zero. The stick man is controlled with the arrow keys of the keyboard. Pressing up arrow key results in swinging the anchor, left and right arrow are for movement. The shield is activated by pressing space bar.
