The essence of Spaceball: Revolution is a hand-eye coordination challenge: players are tasked with filling-out a 3x3 grid in accordance with the displayed image. Shooting a ball will fill-in or remove the background from a box on the grid, hitting a line will do the same for all boxes immediately connected to that line. Simple enough as it starts, Spaceball: Revolution soon builds in complexity by adding foreground cubes that obstruct your shots, asking players to monitor their movement and time their shots precisely. As players continue, further objects eventually force players to rebound shots off the surrounding walls to land correctly on the grid with the addition of floating asteroids and swinging pendulums. All of this must be done within a strict time limit, with the grid moving further away as the time remaining decreases – lowering the accuracy of shots.
