If I'd have more credits I'd definetly gave this a try, I love the beat mixed in to the puzzle action!

Wow! Brilliant match-3. Might say, one of the best in the store. The soundtrack alone is worth the money! (was purchasing it after reading that music from Com Truise is in there too). Presentation is fantastic for a match-3 (even randomly created backgrounds). Controls are perfect and with some fresh elements. No critics at all. Perfect game, highly entertaining and seriously addicting. Gem!

Game Impressions

Radballs is extraordinarily good. It matters not if Match-3 style games aren't your boom, because the quantity and quality of features here exceed the typical Match-3 by a factor of ten.

Yes, you do Match-3, but you also create uber-blocks like Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, you create massive chain combos, and you do it to a beat. When the Lumines-style bar sweeps the screen, you "scratch" it and the music back and forth to burst uber-blocks for uber-points.

The soundtrack is populated by excellent Electro tunes performed by "real" known bands, which alone would be worth the price of admission. As if that weren't enough, you can slot any and all of your own iTunes library songs into the mix and it beat-matches them perfectly.

The artwork is nothing short of brilliant. If you had the displeasure of living through the eighties, you will recognize every saturated, paint-splashed portion of the interface and love the game for it.

This game was quite clearly made by a team that adored every last detail of the project and wanted to ensure each component was perfect in the final shipping product. I'm happy to report, they've done just that. The 80's are back and you can almost smell the moussed mall hair. Buy this game immediately, as I've barely scratched the surface of what makes this game great.

If only it had some music from the 80s.

Don't know, I'm still on the fence. Wouldn't mind seeing a video of unedited gameplay.

I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.
