Description

Boom Ball is a lighthearted, full-body Kinect game that mixes tennis, Breakout and gratuitous explosions.

History

Virtual Air Guitar Company's entry to Xbox One and self-publishing on ID@Xbox began its life as a finger-controlled game for the Leap Motion Controller. After a graphics upgrade and a complete overhaul of the gameplay to better fit the physical full-body control of Kinect, Boom Ball for Kinect had become a completely new game, even though the core idea of hitting bricks with a ball had remained the same.

Features

  • Throw and bounce balls to smash all the cubes and blow up all the bombs in 55 different levels.
  • Guest starring: Explosions! Portals! Multiballs! More explosions! Ducks!
  • Anyone can play, regardless of age or height.
  • Doesn't require much playing space.
