Timeball a/k/a Blodia (an anagram of Diablo) is a simple but addictive tile shifting game where a ball moves slowly and inexorably down a track, and you have to move pieces to give it MORE track so it doesn’t fall off. This is similar to Loco-Motion on Intellivision (which uses trains) or Pipe Dream (which uses flowing water and pipes).


It’s all the same concept but how much fun it is all depends on how much you’re into puzzle games, so be sure to try it out in emulation first before buying (even though it’s rather inexpensive).
