Game SiteSticky Balls:Working Title: STICKY BALLSPlatform/OS: PSP(possibly others)Genre: Puzzle/??? Rating: E - Everyone Release Date: ????A totally original game that is as easy to play as it is fiendishly difficult to master.A simple concept with simpler controls that will grab you instantly; yet the game, depth and strategy will keep you coming back for more.Control System:One of the most important features of Sticky Balls is that it has one of the simplest control schemes ever divised, allowing the game to be adapted to a wide variety of platforms.Mouse/stylus system:The only control needed is a single tap or button press. On a standard console controller the controls are equally intuitive, requiring only a single button to play the game.How the Game Works:Sticky Balls has a simple set of rules which can be adapted to an almost unlimited number of game modes.Balls & Tables:The game is played on a Table with a number of differently colored Balls. The player can shoot any of the Balls on the Table (much like pool), rebounding off the edges or other Balls.Clusters & Snakes:If the Ball you shoot touches another of the same color then they will be permanently stuck together as a Cluster. When up to 7 Balls of given color (or all the remaining Balls of that color) are connected the entire Cluster will be removed from the Table. This is the basic game mechanic behind all game modes. A special Cluster called a Snake (balls connected in a line) earns extra rewards.The Bonus and Scoring:Every clean Shot by the Cue-ball increases the Bonus value by a set number of points. Ever non-clean Shot by the Cue-Ball resets the Bonus to zero. Keeping the bonus as high as possible, for as long as possible, is the key to earning big scores.Sticky Balls has been described as "an exercise in pure gameplay".The game has already become part of a University Degree course in game design, even before its first release. The early prototype even attracted the attention of the prestigious Edge magazine.Game SiteWrath & Skeller, Possible Fourth Game?

I thought I saw a clip on Johnny Whatever on one of the G4 shows (Pulse?). I thought it looked pretty good. AT

Sticky Balls
I know the feeling, if ya know what I mean :wink: That has to be the worst name for a game.... hope it's subject to change.The "Johnny Whatever" game seems interesting, it's a rip of the Sex Pistols if I ever saw one, but the game looks like it could be good, if a bit stereotypical

Yeah that was Johnny Whatever on Pulse. When I was watching footage of the game that they showed I thought "Whoa, this game looks awesome. What the hell is it?", I'm glad I found out.InnerLogic wrote:

Reminds me of Project Rub for the DS and the goof on the GameSpot page. It was such a pain in the ass because I had to type that entire description for Sticky Balls that was on the .jpeg file, damn you Sticky Balls.
