3-D Vector Ball 3.0 Has Been Released

Just a head's up -

I've just released version 3 of 3-D Vector Ball. This release addresses some issues a lot of players have been experiencing, such as difficult to hit corner shots, and a larger paddle.

As you go up in levels, the paddle gradually shrinks, adding to the challenge and smoothing out the learning curve for new players.

New sound effects have been added, and the frame rate is a bit smoother, still at a whopping 60fps!

Have a look, and send in your comments/suggestions if you have 'em!

Great update, hadn't played this one for quite some time cause the dead zones in the corners made the game frustrating & unplayable. Thanks for addressing the corners this will be put back into the rotation. Anyone that doesn't already have this game needs to pick it up now.
Almost forgot welcome to TA.

What a big difference with the update. Like this game a lot but couldn't volley but for a few minutes. Update has made this game playable and will be doing so from now on. Thanks

Hi William!

Have bought it after 3.0 and love it!

Have just submitted a 5 start review in iTunes

I guess an Internet-Mode is not planned, due to servercosts?

Here is my original 2 star appstore review written November 12, 2008 for 3D Vector Ball.
Give me a larger paddle

I tried tilting and adjust tilt sensitivity. Utter failure. Then switch to using finger to control which is better but still way too hard. Two player games would disconnect constantly. App would just hang/crash. Make it easier either by increasing size of paddle or shorten the open goal area by 20% or so.
Wow much better now.....took only 6 months for an update....hehe.

Vector Ball is better now with ease of playability. The corner shots used to be the big killers for me. If you're on the fence, this is a much easier decision to buy now.
