Hey Anthony,

I'm extremely glad to have this game. I've purchased your Renaissance release a few years ago and I'm glad I did.

One thing I feel I'm missing is the elite levels. I remember in the original "Coming Soon" thread that Elite and Retro levels were going to be made. Retro levels appeared last year. Did you scrap the elite level pack or is it coming anyways?

Cheers and also thanks for the memories with the original Powball way back in 1996.


So nice to receive such kind feedback, especially from someone who played the original - thank you!

I did scrap the Elite levels idea unfortunately. Renaissance wasn't as well received as I had hoped; and I got some quite vindictive negative feedback (see Steam reviews). So far on itch, this game has only 1 review of 1 star - again, seems very vindictive? 100+ levels take a long time to design, so I decided to close this project up to focus on new ideas - which I have lots of . The retro level set was easy and fun to make because of no background, a simple set of bricks and most levels were inspired by other breakout games, so I'm really glad I put the effort in to make them.

I hope you will follow me closely and  see what I can come up with next.

Dude, it sucks that one user got vengative by posting a shitty review all of which is false and mal-intentioned.

And so sorry about the elite levels. I was really looking forward for a true over-the-top extra challenge, since I completed all levels in the game.

Well I guess I'll have to develop my own levels and have a sip with it.

I'll look forward to any of your projects. As I said before I have played PowBall since it's original release WAY BACK in 1996 and I think it's one of the best arkanoid clones. Even my niece enjoys the original game by a lot.


1996. Makes one feel old, doesn't it?  lol.

If you can design levels suitable for the Elite set, I would be very interested in seeing them. I was hoping players would submit their levels to me actually. I could make a whole set that includes the best pick of player designed levels.  You never know, the Elite set might get added one day.
