Audiball

Audiball is a rhythm-based puzzle game designed around a guitar controller for Xbox 360. It was the first release from my company, Indiecisive Games, and it was a launch title for the Xbox Live Indie Games service. I was responsible for most of the game’s physics and UI code.

Introduction

In the world of Audiball, sounds become audible when tiny spheres known as “audiballs” pass through them. Use your guitar controller in a completely new way as you trigger sounds to guide the audiballs through each track, producing music as you go. Go slow or go fast. Steer audiballs away from obstacles or use them to your advantage. The game’s soundtrack dynamically changes depending on how you decide to play, meaning each time you play results in a new audiovisual experience.

Audiball is available now on Xbox Live Indie Games for the low price of $0.99! Click here to go to the Xbox Live Marketplace and download the demo or buy the game. You can play without a guitar controller, too.

MTV Multiplayer featured Audiball as the inaugural title of their “Xbox Live Indie Games Showcase.” Quotes from the article:

  • Audiball is the kind of title that justifies the whole Xbox Live Indie Games initiative.”
  • “…takes the idea of music-as-gameplay well beyond this generation’s rhythm games.”
  • Audiball is moving you beyond the simple single-melody structure of Rock Band and teaching you how to track a fugue, a much tougher and more satisfying activity.”
  • “If you’re a fan of rhythm games and have a Guitar Hero controller you’d like to find a new use for, it’s a must-play.”

Quotes from Destructoid’s 7/10 review of Audiball:

  • Audiball is a competent puzzle game with a refreshing style.”
  • The last level…is perhaps the most striking example of good design coupled with decent puzzle gameplay.”
  • “Neither repetitive nor distracting, the songs and sounds of the game add to the experience…”
  • For 200 Microsoft Points, it’s hard to find a reason not to buy this game if you’re a puzzle fanatic armed with a plastic peripheral.
