The first version of DX-Ball 2 was written by Longbow Games' founder Seumas McNally as a successor to the freeware DX-Ball written by Michael Welch. The sequel launched in December 1998 with new high-colour textured graphics, new difficulty modes, more power-ups, hotseat multiplayer, and an iconic new soundtrack by SideWinder.
The full version of the original DX-Ball 2 is no longer supported and is not available for sale. If you purchased a copy of the original game and need to replace it, please contact email@example.com for further assistance. You can also capture the feel of the original game in the new anniversary edition by disabling the updated graphics and features from the menu screen.
