Vortiball is an action arcade game where the player controls Vort (the ball) to complete fixed-screen levels and collect the required number of coins. Money is required to open the exit gate indicated in the HUD on the right side of the screen. Vort is constantly moving, so only the arrow keys are used to determine the direction.
There are two enemies in the game: traps and ghost balls. The first kills Vort immediately, while the second causes Vort to lose money. Vort can pick up power-ups that provide protection against traps or kill the ghost balls.
The game is distributed as shareware and the unregistered version allows for ten games only.
