Ballz is a new game for the iOS and Android by Ketchapp, and one of their most popular ever, that can best be described as endless Breakout meets bubble shooters, with math. Your goal is to break the blocks by hitting them the specified number of times with balls that you shoot in the air, and avoid letting a block hit the ground. Read on for some tips and tricks for Ballz!
You have two different types of collectibles in this game. One, the white balls, is arguably the most important one as for each one you collect, you’ll shoot off another ball when you fire again. The rings are the currency of the game, and you can use them in the store to purchase new types of balls. The new balls change the look of the game, but not the gameplay.
When the numbers of the tiles start to get big, it’s best to fire off a diagonal shot, carom it off a wall, and aim it at the side of a specific tile. The balls will typically bounce off, hit other tiles or hit the wall and the ceiling, and take out loads of tiles and collect rings and white balls before coming back down to the ground, allowing you to avoid a jam or get out of one entirely.
Go to the main menu and go to the store, and you will be able to buy other balls if you have 200 rings or more. If you don’t and the earnings are coming too slowly, hit the video button in the store to win 20 rings in exchange for watching an advertisement. Watch as many of them as you want in order to earn an essentially unlimited number of rings.
If you want to play the game with no ads, a quick in-app purchase will turn them off for $1.99 or the equivalent in your local currency. The optional ad videos for rings will still be there. If you don’t want to pay to turn them off, switch your phone into airplane mode while you play, although you won’t be able to earn rings that way.
Hit the high score button (the one that looks like a wifi signal scale) to compare your scores to the ones achieved by other players globally, to see how high you rank. Any that appear unrealistically high are probably hacks. Any that appear high but doable by an expert player are real.
