    Jezzball 3DS is a clone of Jezzball for the 3DS, now in stereoscopic 3D! Jezzball is a simple yet addictive game in which you have to fill most of the play area while avoiding bouncing balls. Supports highscore saving. For more information about the game please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JezzBall.

    If you're taking suggestions, maybe you could add a mode where it uses the touch screen. I was wondering why it didn't in the first place until I noticed it had 3D support. But the touch screen would make it much easier to control for people who don't care about playing in 3D (or can't, like if they use a 2DS.)

    Also, one way you could improve the keyboard would be to use the built-in OS keyboard. Though considering I haven't seen any homebrew that does this, I wouldn't be surprised if no one's figured out how yet. (Though that leaked SDK might be of help.)

    Finally, how about posting the source code?

    The game does support touchscreen controls (edited first post with controls info). About the keyboard, I didn't find a way to use the built-in one, so I simulated it. I also plan to post the code but it needs a bit of cleaning.

    Long ago, there was an operating system called windows 95, which came prepackaged with some simple addictive games. This is one of them.

    Sorry to bump an old post but this seems fun.

    Anybody that looks at this think they could pick it up and work on it?


    Edit: Didn't realize that someone had the same idea I had. Found this two days ago back in old pages and tried it out. Loaded the page back up and just posted before reading.

    Never heard about this game until now lol but I played and I found it awesome! Also really great port! If you're interested in releasing a (brazilian) portuguese translation I could do it, I can't code at all, but a system where I would only replace strings and stuff like this would work.

    It's from the beginning of the year. Still works great. Fun game with plenty of nostalgia.

    But it seems the balls move way faster than they should...

    My favorite version of this type of game was Bally on the Amiga. Die Fire!
