The ball speed will increase gradually as the score increases and every 100 points (GAME A) and 1000 points (GAME B) the speed returns to slow temporarily.
If you play BALL Nintendo Game & Watch in high-temperature ambients you may experience the ball overlapping when the speed is up.

In this game 2 balls move in the air. To proceed the game, it's necessary to receive the balls by the skillful control of the juggler's hands using both left and right buttons.

- control the juggler hands using the left and right buttons
- each time a ball is received you will score 1 point in GAME A and 10 pints on GAME B
- when the ball falls and cracked the game will over.

Though the speed of the ball increases gradually, it will slow down temporarily every 1000 points. If the speed of the ball becomes faster than a certain degree such as 280 points or more on GAME A or 2800 points on GAME B the balls will overlap with each other under a high ambient temperature. Thus, the balls may appear to be overlapped.

Cheats and tricks

Remember that the speed of the ball decreases every 100 points before gradually increasing in speed again.

This might be a good time for a little breather. At high ambient temperature you might experience the balls overlapping when the speed has built up.

Here you only have one chance. If you fail to catch a ball, it cracks and the game ends.
