Game Play


Object Of The Game

Each player controls a rolling ball in a world containing a ramp with various tricks and traps. Whoever is currently the highest amoung the players (including AI players) is the "King" (depicted with a crown over the player's ball) and accumulates points while in that state. Collect as many points as possible by rolling up the ramps and knocking other players off. A Hint Guide is available.



Each player accumulates points for the duration that they are "King of the Hill". Points are displayed on the right and arranged by player color.
