IceBreaker

IceBreaker

IceBreaker is based on a game called Jezzball, originally written by Dima Pavlovsky and distributed as part of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack for Windows. This was a quite popular game, as we can see from sites like David and Tia Rich’s Jezzball Club House. However, Microsoft no longer produces this package, and you no longer can obtain the original Jezzball legally. You may find it out there from grey-area abandonware sites, but I encourage you to download IceBreaker instead. It’s totally completely legally free, and it makes me happy to see people benefiting from my work.
