PaintBall Review

Developer: CrazySoft Publisher: CrazySoft
Release Date: November 20, 2003 Also On: None

PaintBall is yet another good game for your pocket. The entertainment value for this title is quite large, considering there is any number of different scenarios that can play out while playing the game. Three different difficulties help contribute to the already extensive amount of variation and replay value.

PaintBall is adjustable for high-resolution devices, along with horizontal and vertical ones. It’s also tuned for the Zodiac with vibration and hard keys. The graphics are 16-bit, with smooth animations, and a bright display.

The objective of PaintBall is to make groups of three or more balls of the same color next to a warp pipe. The pipe will suck the same-colored balls and the paint meter will increase. Every color can make a group, except for black balls.

To change a ball’s color, tap it with the stylus. The “next� shows what color is currently being used. Again, all colors (green, blue, orange, yellow, and red), except for black, can makeup the groups. Painting the balls reduces the paint meter, but rises when groups of balls are sucked into the pipes. If you run out of paint, you lose.

High scores show the top five players. The three different difficulty settings have their own high score categories. Names are displayed out-of-the-box and are replaced when you beat the already existing high scores.

The hard game mode works like the normal game, except your paint reserve is leaking. If it runs out, you lose. In chroma, you play using a color wheel. If a ball is blue and you use red paint, it turns purple. Mixing opposite colors turn the ball black.

PaintBall is a unique, addictive, and enjoyable strategy title for the Zodiac, along with PDA’s compatible with the game. Hours can be spent playing this at a time, or because of the Zodiac’s sleeper, can be played for a couple minutes, turned off, and returned to hours or even days later. CrazySoft has delivered another Zodiac title worth looking into.
