Rival Ball 1.5.6 is a block-bursting game, like Arkanoid or Ricochet. The object of the game is to destroy every brick on the screen, by hitting it with a ball, which you will have to deflect with a paddle. You'll have to hit the ball with the paddle, to prevent it from falling down. While being destroyed, blocks will release some power-ups or power-downs, which you should catch with your paddle to activate them. The power-ups will make your paddle and ball bigger, making things easier for you. Or they will blow some blocks. Or strike them with a thunder. Power-downs will make your paddle or ball smaller. Rival Ball can be played online, and you will be able to compete with other users. As this game is a sequel to DX-Ball, you can play DX-Ball 2 boards with Rival Ball.
