Ambrosia Releases GooBall
7:54 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software has released GooBall, a 3D action game. In GooBall you roll, jump, and slime your GooBall through dozens of fanciful worlds of wonder as you control the cutest little alien around, the Goober. The game is available for download from our sister site,

Here's more from the press release:

Life as an intergalactic vagabond was a blast: warping from universe to universe, surfing the Milky Way Wave... that is until one wrong turn at Alpha Centauri slams you into an asteroid belt, forcing a crash landing in the desert on a little out of the way planet called "Earth."

The next thing you know, the black helicopters are circling, men in black suits pull you from the wreckage of your StratoSphere 2000 spaceball, and some annoying pencil-neck named "Mike" starts calling you a "Goober." Pot, kettle, black, buddy!

Thrust into a viscous gooey ball -- that they call a "life support system" -- you're now the object of affection for a bunch of guys that curiously are all named "CIA." Poked, prodded, and massaged in ways that'd normally cost several thousand credits in the seedier parts of Beta Pictoris, this is a far cry from a casual holiday!

In any event, now they have decided to figure out if you're "intelligent" by forcing you to navigate through a bunch of obstacle courses like a rat in a maze. Earth to Mr. CIA: if you wear dark sunglasses indoors, you're no judge of intelligence!

Ah well, this little GooBall they have you stuck in is actually kinda cool: you can zoom around without fear of getting hurt, and it can deform to become "sticky" for quick turns and scaling walls. Plus the buzz you get from spinning around is better than inhaling a can of SpaceDust! Wooooohoooooo!

To download GooBall, head over to GooBall costs $25 and requires MacOS X 10.2 or later and will just on just about any Mac.

Update: Users are encouraged to download the game via Bittorrent as our regular servers are currently at capacity.
