DX-Ball is a freeware computer game for the PC first released in 1996 by Michael P. Welch. The game is patterned after classic ball-and-paddle arcade games such as Breakout and Arkanoid. It became a massive cult classic in the Windows freeware gaming community during the late 1990s. A level editor was made available as well.
DX-Ball has been followed up by two direct sequels: DX-Ball 2 by Longbow Digital Arts in 1998, and Super DX-Ball by Michael P. Welch himself in 2004. While DX-Ball 2 was later succeeded by Rival Ball in 2001, the latter merely relates as a spiritual successor to the original DX-Ball, being developed on the branch of Longbow Digital Arts. Unlike DX-Ball, these games are not freeware.
