IMPORTANT NOTICE - The current video and images are only the alpha version of the graphics, we wanted to focus on presenting the gameplay and mechanics of the game. The graphics will be greatly improved!

Pixel Ball is an competitive, 2D, multiplayer, dodgeball game where you play 1 on 1 matches with the objective to hit your opponent 5 times with any ball. Dodge, catch and throw dodgeballs in your attempt to outsmart and outplay your opponent. You can choose to challenge your friends, play against random people online or even try your hand and at the "Grandmaster" AI.

  • Easy Controls: Pixel Ball features easy to understand controls with and simple mechanics. Anyone can jump in and play!
  • Intense battles: Pixel Ball will keep you on your toes with high speed dodge-balls, awesome screen shacking explosions, blood rushing head shots and much more!
  • Customization: Choose from tons of skins and effect to represent your character as well as a plethora of dodge balls that can affect the outcome of a match!
  • Aim to be the best: Battle people all over to the world to increase your rank to become one of the top players!

Pixel Ball includes a bunch of mechanics to give the game-play more depth and keep the game fun to play.

Double Jump: Press the jump key while in their air will allow you to double jump. This gives plays more control in the air and one of the most basic mechanics that sets up for cool last second air dodges as well as tying in with other mechanics.

Fire Balls: If you catch a live ball out the air it will turn into a Fire Ball. A Fire Ball is thrown with increased speed and cannot be caught! Certain dodge-balls also have certain effects while on fire.

Head Shots: Head shot happen when a player is hit in the head with a dodge ball. Although head shots don't seem like anything special(except for the "rekt" graphic), they can actually break through basic shields. No one is safe from a Head Shoot.

Leg Shots: Unlike a Head Shot, the Leg Shot doesn't have a cool graphic, but they also cannot be caught. So watch out for those low blows!

Ball Spin: By holding the jump key while throwing the ball will inherit the players vertical speed. This mean while falling down you till spike the ball and while jumping up you will throw the ball upwards. This is a hard mechanic to get used to but is the difference been a good Pixel Ball player and a great Pixel Ball player.

Ball Mechanics: Some of the dodge-balls in Pixel Ball have special effects that are granted to the player current holding the ball. Some include speed and jump bonuses, explosions, ninja like invisibility, protective shields and much more!

Played it at PaxEast 2016 and it is amazing!! The "Basketball" ball is completely overpowered but other than that thegame is well developed and balanced
