Hi,

I've been wondering about an old Klik game that I seem to remember I got from this site long ago, but cannot find anymore. It might have been called "Letterball" or something other "...ball" and was a top-down game where you played as an orange ball, rolling over letters in a park to spell a word (always the same word, but I don't remember what it was).

It supposedly had music by Reel Big Fish. Does anyone remember a game like this? I can't find it in the Wayback Machine either, so I may be misremembering the name or even the website. It was definitely Klik, though.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for the list, but unfortunately I don't think it's on there. I've also looked at screenshots on Kliktopia already and didn't recognise it. Maybe it was called something completely different, but I wouldn't know what it was then.

It's weird since I remember the game quite clearly, especially the music being credited to Reel Big Fish, who I had not heard of before. In my memory, it was featured in the TDC site news and everything, hence I downloaded it. I guess it could have been a different site, like the German Clickzone, though that appears to be down, and the Wayback Machine archive is incomplete.

I made a rough drawing from memory of what I remember it looking like. The levels were grid-based and had nice little details like you're in a park.

P-Tux7 has suggested on the Kliktopia Discord that it might be AHS Chomp or AHS Chomp 2 which is also my best guess at this stage. See:

Hi,

Thanks for the guess, but unfortunately, that doesn't ring any bells. It didn't have openable project files, and I feel like I remember clearly that it was like the picture I posted; a ball in a park. It was kind of a slow-paced game, just rolling through a maze and rolling over the letters. I don't know what the difficulty was, and maybe there wasn't any - I remember getting bored since it seemed obvious where to go but the ball was moving so slowly that it took a while to get there.

I have also been looking and spent a lot of time going through all The Daily Click news archives, but I didn't see anything about it. I also found an archived game listing for Clickzone and it's not there either. I can't think of any other sites it could have come from, so I'm not really sure what's going on anymore. I remember it was somewhat hyped up as a game that had been in the works for a while, and I recall thinking about how it was made from a technical point of view (it seemed to have custom movement, with the ball rolling smoothly between fields but confined to a grid), so it was definitely "Klik".

There was a mention of Reel Big Fish, but I don't remember if it was on the website, in the readme, or the metadata of a music file in the game folder. I hadn't heard of the band before, so I know this with absolute certainty. Searching for that has also not brought up any results, though.

I didn't expect such a mystery when I started my search, but I got no more ideas.

Ah, that's a shame. I did do a check for "Reel Big Fish" in the readme txt files of all the games I have in my Kliktopia archive and it didn't come up with anything.

I would like to ask for the game "Psycho Burger" which was pretty lame... However, I liked it.
I would also like to see "Amal Games" that was made using "Klik and Play" which is a collection of 4 minigames made from leftovers of unfinished games by it's creator as this is the reason I invented "Bubble Girl"... I would like to see this game again...
