I thought it was 3.1, but it's all a 16 bit haze to me anyways.

The only place I ever saw it was on the Apple computers at school. Never had it for windows.

The interface is a little clunky. You lose a lot of time by clicking to swap between H and V.

Whoa, what an awful implementation..

You don't know how happy certain members of my family will be about the prospect of competitive jezzball. Almost enough that I can predict that NEXT holiday season, scores will be compared.

Hm, it's not the classic jezzball interface, but it's OK. Sam.Burdick, try right-clicking the mouse to change the line orientation. Same as the original! :)

Sam.Burdick: you can right-click to change directions.

was saving comment2k for something special but there it went.

Not nearly as fun as Jis-ball.

Yay! I haven't played Jezzball since... well, since I downloaded Best of Windows Entertainment Pack.

don't tell Bill, he'd be inconsolable

Huh. I'd not played this before, but it's definitely a progenitor of Filler.

Oh glee. Thanks for this link, I haven't played this game in ages and was always partial to it.

Wow, "Jezzball"--really? Snicker.

I liked this better when it was called Qix.

When Filler was linked here recently, I thought, "This is good, but it's no Jezzball." I was building chimneys again as though I hadn't given up the game for these past ten years. Good times.

Awesome! I've missed you Jezzball.

Threadjack, but anyone know of any good Mac OS X versions?

Don't let Jezzamyn see this.

a) You owe my boss an apology.
b) Right-click does indeed toggle between vertical and horizontal. Unfortunately, it also brings up the RIGHT-CLICK MENU!

Wow, I haven't thought about this game in YEARS. I was definitely hooked back in the day...

I love me some jezzball, but this is pretty buggy. Thanks for the link though. One more thing to do instead of actually working.
