KBounce is a single player arcade game with the elements of puzzle.

Kbounce is a clone of the popular Jezzball game originally created by Microsoft. The game is very simple but it needs skill, timing and patience to finish it. You will win if you can fill at minimum 75% of the area with the bricks. You have to do it fast because you only have 90 seconds.

How to play?

  • Open Applications > Games > Kbounce.
  • When you start the game, there are 2 balls that bounce off inside this square area.
  • All you have to do is click the cursor on any parts inside the square to create bricks partition (wall).
  • The bricks can be built horizontal and vertical. The default is horizontal.
  • To switch between Horizontal and Vertical use Right Mouse Button.
  • You have to count to the right time and position before you start to click the area because you only have one chance.
  • First time the ball hit your ‘growing wall‘, the wall will be disappear starting the hit part.
  • Second time the ball hit your ‘growing wall‘, you lose.
  • The easy trick that I have is separate the balls.
  • If you can do it, it will be easier for your to focus on one ball first.
  • Then start build vertically, finish the first area then continue with the other area.

  • If you are lucky, you can fill 50% area directly.
  • Then start build it vertically.

  • Continue until the area is getting smaller.
  • But you have to be careful, because once the balls hit your ‘growing wall‘ you have to start the again.

  • After you finish the 75% area, you will go to the next level.
