Each level provides a unique challenge with the use of different obstacle types that change the game play. There are also collectable targets in each level that boost your score, if you can collect them all! Are you up to the challenge?

Ricochet brings a new and different twist to the puzzle game genre. A physics based puzzler, Ricochet tests your skills in solving puzzles with angles and bank shots.

The difficulty is changed by limiting the number of planks you can use to change the angle of your shot around the level. You also are penalized for each attempt you take on each stage, so those high-score junkies will want to get placement just right before taking your shot. While the game has a relatively simple concept, the high-score aspect will keep you coming back for that best route through the level.

Ricochet can bounce into your Xbox LIVE Indie Games collection for just 80 MSP.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
