Ball laB II from eastasiasoft and Viktor Yurchuk is a minimalist 2D precision platformer with single-screen challenges to take on. There are 50 levels for you to take on, with an increasing difficulty curve that will test your skills. You can play through this game by choosing one of the three different available difficulties: Easy, Normal, or Hard. When playing in Easy, there will be no timer to worry about, so you can play at your own pace. For Normal, there’s a time limit for completing the level. As for Hard, on top of there being a time limit to complete the whole game, if your time runs out, then you have to start from the beginning!
This is a simple game with simple gameplay mechanics. You need to get from point A to point B as you work your way through levels of increasing difficulty. You’ll control a small white ball by using the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you jump and double jump by pressing the X button. Avoid running into spikes or falling into bottomless pits, and you’ll be good to go.
And since this one is a Cross-Buy title, your purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost, and each one will have its own trophy list for you to work. Each list has a single Silver trophy and 11 Gold trophies for you to work on. As long as you complete the first 30 levels and die 100 times, you’ll be adding another Platinum to your collection. If you need some extra help, you can check out this Ball laB II Trophy Guide.
Ball laB II is a minimalist 2D precision platformer with single-screen challenges to take on. There are 50 levels on offer, with a difficulty curve that introduces new elements and challenges as you progress further and further.

It’s a Cross-Buy title, so you’ll be able to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
