The game has six different board packs: DX-Ball, Retro, Fun, Challenge, Super, And Surprise. Like Pocket Tanks (also developed by BlitWise) this game follows the standard shareware computer game paradigm; there are trial and fully licensed commercial versions, with the latter having more levels and bonuses. The upgraded version (known as the full version) is called Super DX-Ball Deluxe, and features 150 levels. One can also obtain some expansion packs for Super DX-Ball Deluxe after obtaining the game:
Note: Surprise Pack now included in 1.1 version, with a 3-board demo available in the demo version.
The game also has the "Mega Ball" pack that has 20 more levels. One can access the "Mega Ball" mode by clicking on the Mega Ball Power-Up on the Power-Ups menu. Also note that the original DX-Ball set is no longer an easter egg.
The add-on "treasure pack" contains 10 new boards for the game. There is a secret message encoded (via binary code) into the final board that reads "DX-Ball 1996 to 2006 and still the best ; ).
Super DX-Ball has been updated to 1.1 to add board shuffle, unlock, continue, and difficulty features. (there is already a difficulty feature, but the number of difficulties have been raised).
Having this software installed at MPI Research caused some people to be fired. Unfortunatly the true culprit got away.
