Game Vortex: "The physics-based puzzler is a relatively unpopulated niche of a genre, but most of the titles I've played have been worthwhile experiences. I'm talking about titles like Portal and Penumbra, which are fantastic in every sense of the word. Every time a new physics-based puzzler comes along, I usually go out of my way to at least give it a try. I just finished Tripwire Interactive and Teotl Studios' The Ball, and it's worthy to stand among the few and the proud. It gets off to a very slow start and there are some notable design flaws, but in the end, it's a good game offered at a more-than-reasonable price."
