Developing

Ballex is one of the new rolling-ball games derived from the 3D video game Ballance. It supports high-quality video images, fancier graphics, and more modules with less bugs and glitches; its gameplay is commonly thought to be better than Ballance.

Ballex is made by MushREB from Chinese Ballance Forum, with Unity as its game engine.

Though some elements in Ballex are similar to those in Ballance, their size, physical parameters and there usages are not totally the same; most of the gameplay is also different from Ballance, thus confusion must be avoided.

Basics operations & elements

Not to be confused with the wood/paper/stone balls or other elements in Ballance. They are entirely different in Ballex.
  • Basic operations: hold down , , , to control the movements of the ball; Space to expand the view field; A, D to rotate the viewport.
  • 7 types of balls: wood, paper, stone, ice, rubber, steel and glowing balls for use; each type of ball has its special features and feelings of manoeuvring.
  • Modules & floors: some existing types of elements from Ballance replaced with new textures and models are added to Ballex, along with numerous new elements such as red boards (trampolines), falling boards, pressure plates, fire sprayers, TNTs, one-way gates, password gates, magnets, waterpools, which have improved the gameplay greatly.

Game modes & future outlooks

  • Record mode: two timers corresponding to HS (high scores) and SR (speedruns) are included. Scores can be uploaded to the online ranking list in Steam.
  • The shadow challenge: by enabling this option before starting a level, the path of the ball will be recorded, and a shadow ball will appear to confirm the performance of the player. Try to go ahead of it!
  • The creative workshop: level editor is included in the game, which enables the player to make own custom levels and upload them to steam for everyone to play.

Present situation

The official version of Ballex on Windows and MacOS has been finished and released on Steam, with the latest version of 1.03 and map maker 3, pricing $ 2.13. For Android and iOS system, only the beta version is released (Android: TapTap; iOS: App Store).

History & user feedbacks

Version 0.4[1] and 0.5[2] of Ballex were released in Chinese Ballance Forum initially.

Since the release, Ballex has been welcomed by a large amount of players and gained a group of trustable users.

Community

Though Ballex was released worldwide, only a Discord server (join) is available all over the world.

System requirements

Because of the high-quality video, the system requirements for Ballex to run smoothly is far higher than Ballance.

Below are from Ballex on Steam store as a reference:

Hardware / Software Lowest Recommended
RAM 4 GB 16 GB
Disk space 2 GB 4 GB
CPU Intel Core i5 6600 Intel Core i7 6800K
Graphics driver Nvidia GTX 660 Nvidia GTX 1060
Operating system Windows 7 x64 Windows 10 x64
DirectX version 10 12

However, most computers with normal system configurations can run Ballex at least with the lowest graphics smoothly.
