I had a lot of fun trying to get the gold medals in the different courses, but I had the most fun competing for points against other players online. It is one thing to play for fun, but to compete for the top rank really appealed to me. Again, this game is actually a lot of fun even though it is so simple a concept. Shooting an orb at a star doesn't sound too complex, but mix in the other features including power-ups, points, rankings, medals, and different courses that get unlocked, not to mention the networking mode, and this game is a real winner!
Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Orbz may initially seem childish to the gaming elite, but the last laugh belongs to 21-6, as the sneering uber-Quake fan gets hooked and spends hours desperately trying to nail just– one– last– star! I myself went into Orbz with low expectations. My first impression was that it would be, at best, a 15-minute distraction I spent many hours slugging through to piece together a fair review. Good thing I’ve learned to ignore first impressions as needed. What I got was an immediately engaging experience; a package of graphical candy that mixed challenge and fun in equal parts, has more pros than cons, and achieved the almost unthinkable: It got my wife hooked. Orbz is simplistic in the extreme without sacrificing a single ounce of fun, dripping in laugh-out-loud moments and resplendent in its staggeringly wide appeal. It delivers the goods. 21-6 has produced a little winner, and with the right developer support, Orbz could blossom into a true classic.
