Road to Ballhalla

Rhythm-driven Gameplay

Move with the music to overcome even the most difficult hazards, like laser beams or insane camera angles trying to explode both your balls and your brain.

Dynamic Music and SFX

The dynamic music by Emmy-nominated composer Nicholas Singer is tailored to the rhythm and style of each level, with sound effects adjusting to the level's music. Without it, you'd fail even harder.

Epic Storyline

Not included. Instead, be guided by floor texts that make fun of you when you fail and drop awful puns even if you unexpectedly don't.

Scavenger Hunt

Discover secret areas that lead to other secret areas which in turn lead to other secret areas 1. You get the idea, and maybe even the rainbow that awaits you at the end of the treasure. Probably you'll just google it though.

Speedrolling

Replay levels in Rush mode as fast as you can and prove that you are a good person by beating other players' highscores.

Style your Balls

Be rewarded with awesome bonus contents like tasty new colors 2 and trail effects for your balls.

Workshop Integration

Community levels are probably better anyways - create and share your own challenges with the level editor.

  • Road To Ballhalla is a delight. It rises above its inspirations to bring a new musical sensibility to the action puzzle genre. While some levels can be frustrating or even punishing, it never feels unfair — clearly a huge amount of thought has gone into balancing the difficulty, and anyone who brings a steady hand and a good amount of patience will find one of the most wonderfully kinetic puzzlers around.

  • Road to Ballhalla is an insanely difficult rhythmic puzzler. It’s enjoyable and agonizing in equal measure, tossing a variety of trials at you then teasing you when you don’t overcome them on the first try. For those who can fight their way through and remain cool-headed, dozens of neat features and hours of playtime await.

  • It always has another trick or another joke up its sleeve. This is a gem with the neglected rolling ball games.

  • It is a shame that every level is so well done and all required so much work, in terms of visual and audio presentation, that it means there are so few levels overall.

  • For all its early indulgence in balls (and the suggestion of which that line of “comedy” might head in), Ballhalla is still at its heart a clever little marble-rolling puzzler with plentiful moments of delightful frustration.

  • The one concern I would raise is game length. If you aren’t that much of a completionist, you can “complete” the game in an afternoon however the game compensates with so much extra content of repeating levels again and other secrets.

  • Despite the punishing difficulty, Road to Ballhalla just has that special something that can keep players coming back.

  • Road to Ballhalla is a lot of fun, with a great visual style and soundtrack, let down by a unenjoyable difficulty level.
