You play the game with up to 12 people. There are a few all against all modes.
- Arena: Filled with spheres of your colour and your opponents. You must try and avoid hitting your opponent's balls.
- Trails: Collect spheres to grow longer than your opponents. Then block their path and pay attention to your own. And should the other players try to keep their distance, just fling your spheres at them.
There are a few team modes:
- Multiball: Team game like football where you are trying to knock the right coloured balls into the goal.
- Blizzard: Defend against a whole shower of spheres at once, and send them right back where they came from.
It's the sort of game that looks a little strange if you are not playing it, but as you build an understanding of how it works it becomes really tactical and great fun to play with a lot of people.
