IMG has posted a review of Orbz 2.0, the second game powered by GarageGames' low-cost Torque 3D game engine.
Here's a clip from the review:
Set in a colourful, low-poly environment reminiscent of Nintendo's Mario franchise, gameplay consists of shooting bright electric balls around fourteen playing courses, knocking off targets in a race against time, AI-controlled players called Botz, or up to nine other human players, either competing over the internet or a local area network.Be sure to check out the review by following the link below.
IMG Review: Orbz 2.0
Beginning on a large blue floating pad, players use a point-and-power style aiming system to knock their balls (or Orbz) around the course, similar to the aiming set-ups used in most computer golf or pool games. Numerous star-shaped targets litter the course and can either be found in easy-to reach, wide open spaces, or crammed in hard-to-get corners of the miscellaneous architectural details that define the style of the course. The positioning of the targets indicate their points value - yellow and orange targets being the easier to reach and the lowest scoring targets, while the more valuable red and purple stars require greater skill and strategy to find.
