Pro:
OK graphics
Low system specs
Upgrades via in game xp
Steam Cards
Low system specs

Push:
Achieves coming soon

Con:
The view makes xp catching a problem
XP catching while allowing upgrades is just distracting at times
Difficulty spikes are an issue

Overall:
5/10 +1 cards, +1 graphics, +1 upgrades, -1 difficulty spikes, -1 pov is less than optimal = 6/10

This game is often on sale. For me this is not a $5.50 game, so wait till it's 50% off to grab it.

A great game especially for the price I bought it for. Ionball 2 has a campaign mode with upgradable weapons/advantages and the other being a challenge mode, which feels no different but then again I haven't really progress far enough to tell much about it.

The only negative thing I can say is the visual might be too much and will probbaly throw you off in the location of the ball but the developers provide you with an option to configure it to your liking. I have no idea what to elaborate on, its a pretty straight foward game. (Nice visual, fun, and simple but yet challenging at times)

This would be a great addition to your steam library.

Very challenging little arcade "Breakout" type game. Nice graphics, no bugs I could find. Levels are nicely designed. Takes a real soft touch like any breakout type game, and god relexes. Had a lot of fun with this.

Only real beef is the silly having to catch your XP mechanic, so you're basically having to watch the ball AND try to catch your XP at the same time = 2 different visual tracks to follow at same time. This can be helped though with an XP magnet upgrade. Very challenging game to say the least. Aside form that...

Great reincarnation of the classic arkanoid style game.
Many power-ups, cool fx and tough end bosses, plus additional Tower Assault mode, which means 90+ levels of pure brick madness. Higly recommended arcade action!
