Switchball is basically a remake of Crazyball, both from Atomic Elbow but using different engines. The original was pretty impressive in terms of graphics but amazingly everything looks even better in the sequel, partly thanks to the capabilities of a new engine and reworked textures.

Your task is to guide a ball around various traps, contraptions and obstacles. A morph machine can be used to change your ball's properties, which is a requirement in some situations to successfully navigate around some of the floating maze.

The ball can be steered by using either the mouse or arrow keys, although keyboard controls are recommended as they're more accurate. It's difficult to judge the game based on one level, but things do look extremely promising with twenty levels planned for the final release.
