So, youve found this Web Site! We take it that you have probably wasted an unholy amount of time trying to master this simplistic, but captivating game. One that is not much more advanced then the old game of pong, from the mid-seventies. The whole game will fit on a floppy disc with room to spare.
It was part of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack a decade ago
We have no connection to Microsoft who owns all rights to this game. We are not computer gurus and cannot make JezzBall run in all operating systems. The problem is that Microsoft has no interest in updating this game, since there is not enough money in it. This web site was created and is hosted by David & Tia Rich of Lake Oswego, Oregon (just South of Portland). We started this back in 1997. This web site is not to make any money off this game, as David makes a living through his company called Dynamic Metal Rendering, where he designing and fabricating custom copper roof caps and and Tia is a Professional Tantrica. Tia is a gammer, but has not developed an inerest in JezzBall. David played it on his first PC back in 1995, and figured out a way to score high without cheating. He is just simple fans of the game, such as you are.
"We had nothing personally to do with the development of this game."
game is like this where you can play non-stop for over 6 hours before it plateaus at level
Yes, LEVEL 49.
In this level there are more
atoms flying around than an angry hornets nest.
Fifty of them, count'em, 50.
After this level it will continue to rack up a radical score, but will repeat itself as level 49, and not add any more atoms to split up. You also will not be awarded any more lives to fight the good fight.
There is lots of good tips to get up to these high levels without cheating, where most serious players do not get past level 10 playing it the obvious way.

There is several JezzBall clones out there now.
JezzBall Clone is
at http://www.jezzball.org with
upgrades like a save feature and works in modern operating systems.
Another is at The Arcadevillage called: 'CatchBall' Click on that name to go there and play it. It is pretty good, but we did not see where you can compare your scores to others. There is nothing to download onto your computer. The best part is that there are no annoying banners like the next on-line clone
Denny Cronin made a real slick clone of JezzBall that he calls Bolaloca, which is Spanish for "crazyball" and even has a domain name for it at www.bolaloca.com. It is a very good clone that is played on-line as well. We would say it is even a little better than JezzBall, so go there an have fun!
Mo Kakwan recently did some research for us and found these JezzBall clones:

We do still host this web site, and make changes from time to time, but Mike Boeh bought www.jezzball.com from us to promote his games, so this is no longer www.jezzball.com. We left these pages up on our personal web site at http://mind-temple.com, since Mike did not seems to be interested in using the pages here that we spent thousands of hours creating for the fans
