B-Ball - A C64 game that never was, now finally available to all via Genesis Project


As promised here's another special for Monday, as this one comes from Genesis Project with a game that never was called ' B-Ball ' for the C64. Now I'm not sure if you've ever heard of this game before, but if you haven't, it was due to be released by Prisma Designs but sadly after the game vanished into the void, it wasn't until AFL had the first preview back in 1994 that gamers had the first chance to see a preview of the game. Well now it's 2019 the game has finally made a proper appearance, as Genesis Project has made the game available to all as NTSC-Fixed, one filled and a preview on disk 2.


In the 1970's Bushnell and another guy called Alcorn released a Pong prototype at a local bar named Andy Capp's Tavern, yet it wasn't until 1975 and through a long history that Pong actually appeared in our homes, and on my very own Atari 2600. This game is based around Pong, however according to GTW "The game has a few twists to the standard Pong theme it seems – where you must try and score extra points by hitting a randomly placed block before your opposition does. The game at this stage seems to have some basic AI and a good chunk of the game does indeed seem to be present".
