Inspired by Barrack of Ambrosia Software, after i started making this game i became aware of the classic game Jezzball, so i assume most people will call this a jezzball clone.
coded in mmf with a variety of music and graphics, 10 arcade levels featuring different balls and challenges with a online hiscore table. enjoy!

This game is played using the mouse pointer, press left mouse button to build a vertical line and right mouse button to build a horizontal line.

The aim of the game is to cover at least a certain percentage of the gameboard, you do this by creating lines, you can make a line between balls to separate them or on the side to fill it.
you get 1000 bonus points for each percent of the game board filled more than necessary.
The game has 10 levels, when you lose or complete them all you may submit your score to the online hiscore table.

Each round has a time limit, if you finish the level while the yellow timer is running you will get a time bonus.
after the yellow timer has finished the white timer starts, if the white timer reaches 0, you lose.

this game is still being developed, please press the "check updates" button regularly to get the new versions.

you can now download game as a zipped folder!

Umm, I haven't tried it out yet, but if this works just like the original Jezz Ball did, I'll be impressed.

I never actually tried for more then an hour to create a Jezz Ball system, because it seemed more complex then what it was worth, but props for giving it a shot and actually doing it.

I really don't want to start an argument over this but couldn't you, please, upload it as a compressed folder instead/also?

The gameplay slightly differs from Jezzball, as in your game, when a ball hit a wall while it's creating, the whole wall disappears, not only the side of the wall which was hit. So it's harder.
The graphics, musics and sounds are good.
The differents kinds of balls and walls are a great idea, but you could have donc more levels, in order to "introduce" these ideas. Like, in the 1st level there could be 2 normal balls, then 3 in the 2nd one, then 4 in the 3rd one, then you could make a level with only 2 evil balls... 10 levels is not enough.
Your game could really become better with some updates.

Great graphics and good gameplay. It's not "just" a jezzball-clone, this brings something new.

No1 likes installers, though!

Yeay, I'm rank 3!

Good work on this one! Drawbacks is 1. I don't like Jezzball, and the gameplay is almost identical. 2.Installer. As toxic avenger said, no1 likes installer, and i'm not no1.

Wow, great game! Love the online highscore! Did you make all the graphics?

Jezzball? Never heard of that one. Sounds like a Geordie porn mag or something. This game looks like that really old game Qix to me, spiced up a bunch. I liked Qix, so I'll give this a go later, when I'm not at work like.

Jezzball is a microsoft-clone of Qix.
