DX-Ball is a 'breakout' game based on the popular Amiga game Megaball
by Ed and Al Mackey. It attempts to take the best aspects
of Megaball and mixes them with a few fresh ideas. A great deal
of effort went into the game's "Amiga" look-and-feel.
( 60 frames per second animation, copper bars, sine scrollers,
boing balls, dot flags, snappy game play, etc... )

show this one to your non-computer buddies. :)
