Grubby releases Fizzball
Grubby Games has released its new independent game, Fizzball. Based on the classic "brick-busting" style, Fizzball offers something for all ages: "Bounce bubbles, rescue hungry animals, and solve a mystery, all at the same time! Something strange has been scaring the animals that inhabit the forests on a group of islands. It's up to Professor Fizzwizzle, and his bubble-like Fizzball to whisk them away to safety at the animal sanctuary. Watch as the Fizzball starts off small and then grows enormous enough to envelop large animals like cows and horses." Fizzball features 180 levels, 40 bonus levels, 60 animal species, a special kids' mode, and numerous trophies to unlock. The game offers "frustration-free, brick-busting gameplay," a global high scoring competition, and a 60-day money-back guarantee. The full version is $20 and it runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later (on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs).
