Pushing the limits of what mobile games can do, Whacky Ball is a fun free title that literally puts you in the game. Released last weekend by local developer Alistair Mann, it has already been featured in the ‘Best New Games’ category on the Australian App Store!
In Whacky Ball, your device’s camera transports you into a world of challenging ball games. Using motion recognition, you whack the balls virtually on the screen using your hands or head as if you are really there.

What makes a mobile game a hit? Having something fun, easy to play and unique is a certainly good way to get the ball rolling. Local developer Whacky Brew is working on a game that does just that, and now they’re looking for iOS beta testers to take Whacky Ball for a spin.
Whacky Ball is a challenging game of balls for iPhone and iPad that uses your device’s camera to transport you onto the screen and into the game action. Use your hands or head to keep the balls up in the air before shooting for goal.
