About the Story
A port of an age-old Commodore 64 game in which you have to build walls though a playfield without being hit by a target in the process. Mail the author with comments to receive a cheat code.
Language: English (en)
Current Version: Release 1.0B
Development System: Inform 6
Baf's Guide ID: 244
Yet another arcade game in Z-code, the least promising environment for arcade games ever developed. The author says it's based on Jezzball, which seems to be a variant on the old coin-op game Qix.

After looking at several of this type of program (SpaceInvaderz, SameGame and others), I have arrived at the conclusion that Inform isn't that good at games where quick movement is required. ZassBall is a nice demonstration of programming ability, but that is as far as it goes.
