In MagicBalls, you must select two balls to swap that will create a row of three balls of the same color. Mark one of them by clicking on it with your mouse, and then mark its neighbor. Only moves that form a row or column of three are allowed. The group of three is then removed and the empty space is filled with balls on top. The game stops when there are no possible moves left.
High scores are recorded, and an honor roll keeps track of the family experts. The smaller the game field you select, the more points are added for each ball removed. Depending on the final score, you receive an appropriate rating and funny picture. The graphics are great and sound punctuates the game action.
