Magic Ball 2 New Worlds
I have no idea why I cannot stop playing this game. Perhaps it has some hidden message to make you completely addicted to it.
The basics of the game is older than BFG itself - it's based on the ancient game of "Breakout." You have to keep a ball in motion or boom! you lose a life. You start with three lives.
Instead of beating up a plain wall of bricks, however, you're dealing with something that looks like "Legos for Children" Meets "You Did What?". Each "level" is a little scene depicting something - a car being driven, a beach scene, a zoo, etc. There are sometimes little animals, and when you hit them they go flying off into the sky. The graphics are so cheesy that they're absolutely adorable.
To make things even more fun are the various power-ups that come from breaking the scene apart. They range from changing the speed of the ball, the size of your "bat" (the controller), giving the bat weaponry, and more.
The worst upgrade is the hearts -- a broken heart will destroy your bat but a full one will give you a new life, and sometimes, in the heat of battle it's hard to tell which is which. The best is the multi-ball, giving you two more balls. It is possible to get multiple multi-balls in a row. I once had about 20 balls out there, it was crazy fun.
I'm terrible at video games -- I always have been, ever since playing Pong on a bar-table video console in the early '70s. So if you're someone who plays video games regularly and ace them, this will probably be easy for you. But for someone who doesn't have that kind of coordination, or even for kids, this is a fun game.
Just be warned, it can be addictive.

It Really Is Fun
I agree with the first reviewer.
I usually don't like these sort of games as you tend to get bored easily.
But this one has a really good twist to it.
The music needs to be turned down but the graphics are quite good,
I Liked World2 the best - here you keep the ball bouncing off of camels, penguins, reindeer and other sorts of animals.
It can become quite frenetic with triple triple balls going at once (I didn't get twenty but about 9 going simultaneously).
The best items to pick up are the bazooka and machine gun.
If you like pinball type games you should love this one.
