Description

FizzBall was obviously inspired by Breakout/Arkanoid, and the cult hit Katamari Damacy. In the game you bounce a small bubble around the countryside; when the bubble hits a tree, the tree will drop apples, acorns, pinecones, etc. When the bubble hits one of these objects, it will capture them and grow larger. The object of each level is to grow the bubble large enough to rescue all of the animals.

The story begins mysteriously... Professor Fizzwizzle notices that all of the people have fled the islands, but he doesn't know why! He decides he'll solve the mystery, and rescue all of the poor animals who have been left behind, stranded. He rescues the animals with his FizzBall, and keeps them safe and well fed in his animal sanctuary. As he progresses through the islands, the mystery begins to unravel!
