I've been a fan of ball and paddle games (:p) since those long nights playing whatever that game was called on the Mac Classic at my old front office job. This is by far the best such game I've ever played [subsequently dethroned by Kirby's Block Ball], with tons of stages, lively powerups, crazy little thingies that wander down from the top of the screen and knock your ball in unpredictable directions, simultaneous two-player, and a simple yet powerful level editing tool--the very first stage I slapped down turned out fun and fiendishly tricky. Oh, and hitting different blocks makes different tones, so heavy ball-bouncing action (:p) sounds like a manic symphony. Two-player mode is surprisingly intense.
Very nice.
