A reader has submitted this news item concerning the release of RiotBall:

IronCode Software have released the linux version of their popular game, RiotBall. RiotBall is a hardcore arkanoid style game with fun new twists.

Break bricks, bounce coins, collect gems, fight bosses, and make a big score in this new breakout game. RiotBall is more than just breaking the bricks with the ball.

Bounce coins to get lots of points, but don’t take eyes off the ball! Collect the green gems to play bonus levels, and collect the red ones to play bosses! Try to score as much as you can in the bonus levels, but be wary of the paddle jammer. Hit the boss with the ball, but be careful about the items he drops! Pull off tricks with the ball and the paddle to gain extra bonuses!

RiotBall is available at IronCode Software for $19.95

    Their website mentions that RiotBall was inspired somewhat by DXball for windows, but DXball was almost based completely on a game called MegaBall for the Amiga.

    Megaball is actually freeware now. It’s playable in UAE. Check it out here:

    I remember Megaball on the Amiga and DX Ball on the PC. And this resembles them in playability. I ordered this one, it’s great, and I have a good feeling supporting linux and linux developers.

    I like supporting developers who support Linux but this game is way to similar to LBreakout2 to pay 20.00 for. JMHO.
