The game stems from browser versions of flash games with the same concept that got immense popularity in a relatively short amount of time on the internet. Introduced in an age where flash gaming was the latest thing, the original brick break based flash games quickly gained a loyal and devoted player base because of the ease of access that they provided to players who wanted to play sports but could not be outdoors all the time. The unique and extremely addictive gameplay was also a huge motivating factor for players of all ages and gender to join in on the flash games bandwagon.

The gameplay mechanics of Nonstop Balls are fairly straightforward and the game is designed to be played by players of all ages and genders so naturally the difficulty level is quite low. However, earning the title of an Ultimate Nonstop Baller in the game is something reserved only for the most dedicated and passionate players. The game has an exponential reward rate but that comes coupled with an even more sharply increasing price rate for upgrades and power ups in the game.
Purchasing in-game items or the Golden Balls as they are referred to in Nonstop Balls is also an alternative option for those players whose fingers start aching from tapping and swiping on the screen too much or if you think swiping the screen too fast might be detrimental to the health of your smartphone. Therefore, if you are not a pay to play player, this guide includes some tips on how to proceed with the best playing strategy in order to level up the fastest and follow the fastest path to becoming the best Nonstop Baller for miles around!
1. Always Follow Your Instincts
Yes you read that right! Instead of blindly following the leveling up pattern that the game has set out for you, it is prudent to go for a much faster and easier route of gameplay. Nonstop Balls is a game where you have to define your priorities at the start of the game and act according to them. So first of all you will have to decide whether you are a true swiper or just someone who likes to play the game in his or her leisure time. A true swiper is at the true core of this game and spends hours upon hours swiping on the various different paths in the middle of the screen and ensuring that the balls never fall down to earn as many coins as he can and undergoes a lot of mental stress while trying to find the best sweet spots for maximum bonuses, not to mention the endless swiping that the screen of your smartphone has to endure.
Once you have decided the role you want to take up in Nonstop Balls, you need to focus on developing the right set of skills for the requirements depending upon the type of gameplay strategy that you chose for your time in Nonstop Balls and always remember that your choices will determine the outcome of how the game progresses going forward. In Nonstop Balls, it is quite tempting at times to let random events and luck take you on a wild adventure where you score points entirely by virtue of the random algorithms that the game developers have put in place for Nonstop Balls.
However fun this style of gameplay might be, it is not always the best strategy when you want to become the Ultimate Nonstop Baller and truly showcase your balling prowess in front of your family and friends because leaving your fate to luck and chance will only get you so far on the earlier levels and when you progress to the higher levels, you will be faced with much harder and time limited challenges and to surpass these you will definitely require a gameplay sense that can never be learned through playing on luck and chance alone. Therefore read on to get a true flavor of what lies in wait of you when you progress to the higher levels throughout the game because one thing that is guaranteed is your victory if you learn and play along the way.
2. Battle Your Greatest Enemy: Time
Nonstop Balls is one of the few games on the market which pits your reactions against a fixed amount of time and you have to score as high as you can as soon as possible in order to avoid being a victim to the continuously running clock. The clock timer is indicated by a white bar with a small wall clock on the left side and is located at the top center of the screen of your smartphone. The time bar is also animated which means that it keeps reflecting the state of sensitivity on your stage. So, if you have very less time remaining, the clock bar will start shaking to point out the importance of your time running out and you will have to decide quickly about the move that you want to make or forego your turn for the stage and start from the beginning.
The constantly ticking clock also means that you will have to act as soon as the new stage begins because as you move to the higher levels, it becomes harder and harder for you to keep track of time as there are many obstacles between you and the final target behind all the bricks and you have to decide the best swiping path all in the very limited time that you have on your hands. The best trick to overcome this issue of a very limited time is to make a basic swiping path with your finger while the next stage is loading.
Although this takes like 2 or 3 seconds, but it is quite sufficient for you to formulate a good swiping pattern so that when the stage really starts you are ready to fire your balls and win that coveted extra time bonus. If you manage to complete a certain level before the timer clock bar reaches half of its full value, you will be entitled to a sweet bonus after you complete the stage at the scorecard screen and even though this bonus may initially seem like a very minimal amount, it really adds up to a lot of gold coins if you manage to follow this completion pattern successively.
Another trick to keep the coins flowing and your sanity intact as you battle your wits against the ultimate foe i.e. time is to ensure that you always have a clearly defined trajectory in place for the balls before you attempt to release your finger from the screen. This helps to make sure that whenever you release your finger from the screen, the balls will not just fly off into a random direction or slow down suddenly after striking the ground because once that happens, you do not have any other option but to watch in pain as you will have to repeat the entire level once again and from the beginning. Therefore it is important to play Nonstop Balls with a combination of wits and brain as well as a cautious sense of physics and the trajectory that balls are supposed to follow through the air.
3. Earning Coins And Using Combos
In-game currencies are getting increasingly popular these days and just like any other new game, Nonstop Balls also has its in-game purchasing currency which is known as “Gold Coins”. You will first be introduced to the gold coins and its various purchasing options during the beginning 10 levels of the game. Nonstop Balls will also give out 30 gold coins to you upon the successful completion of all three objectives listed for level 10. Remember to not spend these coins on the purchase of any other perk except for the “Power Shot” and “Shooting Range Increase” upgrades. The earlier upgrades are really not worth the spending of gold coins and neither should you be tempted to spend these on the “Lucky Draws” and “Random Coin Scratcher” machines.
Just like any other brick breaker arcade game, Nonstop Balls has combos as the bread and butter of the gameplay experience. Performing combos will get you through a level much faster and also grant you point multipliers which can greatly contribute towards attaining a huge high score. How you can perform a single combo will be explained by the tutorial at the beginning of the game but you will have to master the skill of performing multiple combos as you progress through the game. A good way to perform a solid multiple combo in this game is to wait for at least three blocks of different colors to appear before you initiate the combo by striking on one of the blocks with the balls. Once this happens, the balls will continue striking other deeper wedged bricks in the series and this will lead to the stage clearing up much faster for you.
Be mindful of the screen however because this elusive opportunity passes by in a flash and you have to display lightning fast reflexes in order to catch it in time. In a way this promotes another positive aspect of Nonstop Balls which is that it increases the concentration and attention span of dedicated players while also markedly improving their reflexes. Therefore it is up to you to decide what is best for your continued progress at all times throughout the game and depending upon your gameplay style, following the tips and tricks mentioned in this guide will surely help you become the Ultimate Nonstop Baller!
