IMG Reviews Orbz 2.0
2:18 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review of Orbz 2.0, the second game powered by GarageGames' low-cost Torque 3D game engine.

Here's a clip from the review:

Set in a colourful, low-poly environment reminiscent of Nintendo's Mario franchise, gameplay consists of shooting bright electric balls around fourteen playing courses, knocking off targets in a race against time, AI-controlled players called Botz, or up to nine other human players, either competing over the internet or a local area network.

Beginning on a large blue floating pad, players use a point-and-power style aiming system to knock their balls (or Orbz) around the course, similar to the aiming set-ups used in most computer golf or pool games. Numerous star-shaped targets litter the course and can either be found in easy-to reach, wide open spaces, or crammed in hard-to-get corners of the miscellaneous architectural details that define the style of the course. The positioning of the targets indicate their points value - yellow and orange targets being the easier to reach and the lowest scoring targets, while the more valuable red and purple stars require greater skill and strategy to find.

Be sure to check out the review by following the link below.
