Ballz 3D is a two-player 3D action fighting video game for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, the Super NES (SNES) and the 3DO. It was developed by PF Magic and published by Accolade in 1994. Ballz 3D offered three difficulty levels over a total of 21 matches. Its distinguishing quality was that each of the characters were composed completely of spheres, giving a 3D perspective.
These are the characters in the game’s lineup of fighters:
Boomer: A clown from the circus. His air jumps and the tricks up his sleeves make him the most humorous fighter.
Bruiser: A bodybuilder who gets quite a workout. His buffed-up body and powerful blows make him a formidable fighter.
Crusher: An enraged rhinoceros who prefers to charge at his opponents directly.
Divine: A ballerina dancer who twirls around gracefully. She’s the only female fighter and will sometimes give a spanking.
Kronk: A caveman from the dawn of civilization. He uses his club to cut his opponents down to size and hits them like a baseball.
Tsunami: A sumo wrestler who enjoys leaping on top of his opponents.
Turbo: A superhero who glides along the arena and blows as strongly as a hurricane. He is the only fighter who uses ranged attacks.
Yoko: A monkey who often breaks wind. He enjoys ganging up on you and slapping you silly.
Zombie: Only appears in the director’s cut version of the game. He stalks and slashes at his enemies.
These are the bosses who appear in One-Player mode. Each boss defeated earns a different colored belt, and these change the fighter’s coloring scheme.
Guggler: The first boss in the game. Guggler is an ostrich who pecks at her opponents and tosses them around with her beak. Her “jump and kick” ability also makes her a boss to be reckoned with. Defeating her wins the Red Belt.
Bounder: The second boss of the game. Bounder is a kangaroo who wears boxing gloves and uses punches and kicks. He often jumps around and balances on his tail while using his legs to fling opponents across the arena. Defeating him wins the Green Belt.
T-Wrecks: The third boss in the game. T-Wrecks is a gigantic dinosaur who relies on an aggressive temperament as an attack. He will grab opponents in his jaws and creates devastating ground shock waves with a powerful tail. Defeating him wins the Blue Belt.
Lamprey: The fourth boss of the game. Lamprey is a mystical genie whose swift attacks and magical powers make him a formidable foe. He possesses the ability to turn himself into any creature, such as a bull, a scorpion, or a snake. Defeating him wins the Black Belt.
The Jester: The ultimate boss. The Jester is the one who challenged the fighters to duel in the tournament at the start. He dons a black-and-white outfit and can be seen juggling balls in the opening. As the final boss, he is the most difficult character to beat. He can disassemble himself and move about the floor, and has physical attacks that are very strong. The damage he does can take off much of the player’s health. After being defeated for the first time, he reassembles and comes back for more. When the Jester finally falls, he grants the fighter’s wish – to play as the bosses.

Ballz 3D (SNES) ROM Download
Question : Is It Illegal To Download and Play a ROM of Ballz 3D ? Answer : Yes it is illegal. We will not supply any links to download the Ballz 3D rom file as we want to keep this site legal. Nintendo have posted the following on there website “whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet” which makes it clear that downloading ROMS is completely illegal.
A lot of people say this is a grey area, Some say as long as you own the game on the SNES you can download and play the ROM as a backup to the physical media, this is not true. Nintendo see ROMS as a threat to date to the intellectual property rights of video game developers.
