“Stripping away modern complexities to return to a simpler, more challenging style of gaming, Ball laB is a straightforward precision platformer presented in minimalistic greyscale pixel art graphics. Each puzzling stage fills a single screen, with the objective being to get from one end of the level to another without falling victim to spikes, pitfalls or other hazards.
You play as a ball. You can roll along flat surfaces, bounce to ledges, hop onto platforms or ride elevators to reach your goal. If you hit a hazard, you’ll instantly respawn at the beginning of the stage, adding to your death counter with each attempt. How many tries will it take for you to clear all 60 challenges?”
Now I knew I was in for something interesting when I couldn’t figure out how to start the game. It turns out you have to finish the starting screen of the game to actually begin the game itself.
Once you have started the game for real make your way to the bubbles coming from the ground, as this counts as completing one level, and each time you do this the landscape changes.
Continue to make your way to the bubbles 10 times to pop all of the level trophies. At this point all you will have left is the deaths trophies, and you need a total of 300 of them.
After the level 10 trophy pops you will be in a stage where you can tape down, or rubber band your controller to have the ball keep moving left, in order to farm the deaths you need.
