Ballz is a fighting game, but what makes it uniqe is the fact that your player is made out of balls.
Ballz is a fighting game in which the characters are completely rendered in balls or colored spheres. Choose from eight characters (Boomer, Bruiser, Crusher, Divine, Kronk, Tsunami, Turbo and Yoko) as you make your way through 15 futuristic arenas with eight bosses to fight. A villain known as the Jester has organized the contest and will insult you each step of the way on a background scoreboard. Move through the ranks of fighters until you come face-to-face with the Jester himself.
Characters rate from one to five in 12 areas, such as speed, punch damage, and charge attacks. Special moves include the ability to morph, perform aerial attacks, and cause explosions or cyclones. Characters all have between 7 to 16 special moves, and can taunt or beg for mercy to increase damage or replenish health, respectively. Options include setting the number of matches in two-player mode (up to 21), choosing one of three difficulty levels for the one-player game, and adjusting handicap for two-player fights. Ballz also features several voice clips to humiliate opponents. The game includes support for AT&T's planned but never-released Edge 16 modem peripheral.
The game has a detailed 3D engine with a fixed camera. The game plays like your normal beat 'em up game. This game supports 2 players, 3 difficulties and up to 21 matches.

Ballz isn't your typical fighting game. First, you'll notice that the characters are made up of colored spheres resembling human forms. Secondly, the game has a scoreboard, which doesn't seem out of the ordinary, but this scoreboard talks trash like nobody's business. Aside from that, the gameplay itself contains the standard fighting fare. There are eight characters to choose from, as well as eight nasty bosses to fight. If you're in the middle of a brawl and you pull off a particularly impressive move, you can watch it from any angle imaginable in the Instant Replay mode. In terms of attacks, you'll find about three times as many moves in Ballz as you would in your average fighting game. In other words, if you don't have Ballz you're missing out.
