Attention span: 4/10 It gets too hard.
Controls: 7/10 Hard to change ways line go.
Implementation: 8/10 Based on the arcade PC classic.
Overall: 6/10 Good game but too hard.

Many of you will be familiar with the game called Jezzball. This game was based on the computer arcade classic game where the objective was to trap the atoms in small containers.

First, you start out with one ball in a large room to trap in. You use the arrow keys to move the cursor around, once you find the good place to divide the room, you press the 2ND key. This will place a line dividing the room. If the ball hits the line while it goes in 2 directions, you will lose one life. If you manage to trap the room to a specific percentage (75 0n the PC version). You will go to the next level. In every new level there is one more ball added to the room, making it harder and harder to avoid the ball hit the line that is dividing the room.

The scoring system is fairly simple; the faster you divide the rooms into small containers, the more points you get.

This game is very hard to play, since the ball moves very quickly, even with the speed set to 3 (the slowest speed.) You can probably get to around level 3 as your highest level before you start to die quickly. One of the hard things about this game is that when one of the ball hits your lines dividing, you have to start all over in dividing the room. So all of your hard work on that single room is gone.

This game is mostly for Jezzball fans, since this game is really hard to play because the ball moves too fast. So I don't really recommend this game to lots of players since it is too hard. If you want to try it out though, go ahead and download it and see.
