2006-12-03 02:00:40 PM  
I am struggling getting past level 7. This would be fun multiplayer
2006-12-03 02:18:54 PM  
Meh, Curveball has been around forever. Looks like someone just decided to change the colors.

/always gets stuck on level 6
2006-12-03 02:30:59 PM

Prefers origional colors
2006-12-03 02:42:15 PM

orange is gay.
2006-12-03 02:42:28 PM  
c'mon now. This has been around for ages. I swear i first saw it poted here MONTHS ago.
2006-12-03 02:42:40 PM  
It's been a few years since I've seen this, but I got to level 9. Hard game.
2006-12-03 02:43:05 PM  
posted, even.

I refused to ever play again after reaching level 10 and crying.
2006-12-03 02:47:15 PM  
15835... anyone?
2006-12-03 02:47:23 PM  
Your head asplode.
2006-12-03 02:47:57 PM  
Yes, it's been around for ages. I played it as a DOS game originally. It certainly wasn't orange then!
2006-12-03 02:48:23 PM  
19690, at a lowly level 7 >.
2006-12-03 02:49:23 PM  
I got to level 6 with all my lives, then I got subsequently pwned.
2006-12-03 02:50:20 PM  
level 8 but OMFG! I want to throw my monitor from the balcony!
2006-12-03 02:50:23 PM  
It's pretty easy if you just circle your mouse around a bit before you hit it. Super curveballs every time.
2006-12-03 02:50:25 PM  
not enough naked chickies in that game
2006-12-03 02:53:04 PM  
this used to be called "shatterball" on the old mac os7. awesome game!
2006-12-03 02:53:30 PM  
I ran across a version of this that had blocks on the bottom you had to destroy, ala breakout. Anyone know where that is?
2006-12-03 02:55:02 PM  
22610, level 7. I've made it as high as level 8 once or twice, but that was when I was playing it regularly on AlbinoBlackSheep. The key is to hit the ball with a diagonal stroke so you keep getting the super curve bonuses. If you do it on serve, they won't be able to return it until about level 5.

A biatch to play with a touchpad.
2006-12-03 02:58:56 PM  
It's so old it's new again!
2006-12-03 02:59:03 PM  
24305 -> lvl7
2006-12-03 02:59:17 PM  
22770 on level 7...used to do a lot better when I played Curveball more often. A Traveling Man is right - it's all about the big curves and high bonuses on the early levels.
2006-12-03 02:59:57 PM  
I remember playing this as Curveball five years ago. Every few months or so I return to it and play for a couple of minutes.

I've never, ever been able to make it past level 8.
2006-12-03 03:00:42 PM

2006-12-03 03:02:44 PM  
Level 8

2006-12-03 03:03:48 PM  
Ive been playing once in a while for the past year... usually make it to level 8, havn't made it past. Evil game.
2006-12-03 03:03:58 PM  
I got to level 8 with 4 balls left and I got it down to 2, then it destroyed me.

Ah well.

Another place to play it that's been around for years:

Level 9 is friggin hard.
2006-12-03 03:12:02 PM  
I remember playing this game with its original colours at least two years ago, there was also a different game with the same set up called "3D Pong" or something that was way crazier, I would use this game as a warm up for it. It had a different scoring system where you started with about one or two points and whenever you scored on the computer you gained a point and whenever it scored on you you lost a point, anyone know what I'm talking about?
2006-12-03 03:14:29 PM  
Beats playing WoW
2006-12-03 03:16:48 PM  
I played this game back when it was written in Abacus++, and it took a giant hall full of elderly Chinese men four and a half months to render every frame.

And I stil couldn't get past level 8.
2006-12-03 03:23:15 PM  
What is WoW anyways? I have never seen it. Please help!

2006-12-03 03:26:04 PM  
Wow = world of war or something like that, it is an online game.
2006-12-03 03:27:17 PM  
Ahh man, stupid submitter

Whenever I play this game, I play it for hours.
2006-12-03 03:27:39 PM  
Meh - got to 8.

Anyone try the reaction time test from the front page?

Post ur 'sults.

/wonders what kind of results pro video gamers like Fatal1ty would have...
2006-12-03 03:29:28 PM game, but it's been around for years. It's one of the fee "3D" versions of a classic game that really works. There was a tetris too that was decent.
2006-12-03 03:29:29 PM  
World of Warcrat. MMORPG. Sucks lives away.

Never played it, myself.
2006-12-03 03:29:33 PM  
This is my favorite Flash game, I like the original colors better. And I got lo level 10, it's not so hard...
2006-12-03 03:30:07 PM  
I have gotten to level 10. But I have been playing it on and off, for over a year. It has been around for a long time.
2006-12-03 03:31:45 PM  
i've been playing this forever...i can get to level 9 consistently with a few lives left, but i've never scored a point after that.
2006-12-03 03:34:06 PM  
I used to compete with my roomate for the high score in this game. I wasted days of my life playing. I still have a screenshot for 32,230 points on level 9.
2006-12-03 03:36:08 PM  
The "game of the day" when I was a Sophomore in college was Lode Runner.

4 of us would fight over the computer to get in a few hours of it.
2006-12-03 03:36:21 PM  
Better version:
2006-12-03 03:39:20 PM

2006-12-03 03:43:22 PM
