Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jet Ball is a fast-paced block-breaking arcade game that may be too challenging for younger kids, but doesn't contain any objectionable content. Parents should be aware, however, that the game does offer the ability to connect to the OpenFeint social gaming network.
Is it any good?
Anyone who enjoyed old block-breaking games like Arkanoid or current retreads like Brickbreaker, will enjoy JET BALL. It's the same basic concept -- you slide your shelf back and forth at the bottom of the screen to bounce balls upward and shatter the bricks above -- but the "blocks" are often round, and many of them are in motion. The kinetic structures that must be broken up keep you constantly on your toes. And the power-ups are fun, exciting additions, including a magnet that allows you to grip the ball until you want to release it. Jet Ball feels like a real evolution in the genre.
