The 1970's and 80's were a golden time for video games. Impossiball pays homage to one of the original greats of that era, but with a 21st century update.

The aim is to score as many points as you can by getting balls past your opponent, whilst stopping as many as possible from getting past you. By rotating your ship you have fine control over the direction balls will bounce. The first player to reach the score limit wins. There is a variety of Power-Ups and 'game changers' like Magnet, Invisiball, Inversion, Shield and Impossiball to make your game easier, or your opponent's game harder.

Time-tested, classic game-play upgraded with 500 balls on screen and 3D graphics. You can try to beat the AI (with three difficulty levels) or challenge a friend.

We have drawn inspiration from Pong (of course) as well as Geometry Wars, Speedball, Break Out and Arkanoid among others.

Anyone for doubles?


To coincide with the latest release of IMPOSSIBALL (version 0.3) we have put together a new trailer that introduces players to all the game modes available:

IMPOSSIBALL - Pong with 500 balls and power-ups!

DODGEBALL - Having done your best to return all the balls, it's time to avoid them as they get bigger and faster!

LONEBALL - Our love-letter to the original Pong - one ball but in a retro, neon-soaked style INCLUDING an 8-bit chiptune.

DOUBLES - Play any of the above game modes in 4 player mode where any combination of players can be AI controlled.

The trailer also makes it clear that the game is now available on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

Impossiball is currently in Early Access on Steam:
