Description

Michael P. Welch's DX-Ball is essentially an improvement over the classic Amiga game Megaball by Ed and Al Mackey. It is a fairly straightforward Breakout/Arkanoid clone with many levels - manipulate the ball in order to take out the cubes at the top, while collecting bonuses (extra shots, extra balls, extra life, etc.).
