You control a glove and your mission is to find your way out of the space maze by destroying blocks with floating balls. Certain blocks unlock exits that lead you to other rooms with different enemies and obstacles like pool pits and steam tunnels. To find them, use the glove to hit balls on the walls or hit them with your limited supply of balls. The ? Icons contain useful power-ups that you can use to recharge your ammunition or get items like triple balls and bombs. When set up correctly, the Power Glove is surprisingly accurate. Your movements are mimicked incredibly well, and actions like grabbing the ball are more intuitive when you simply close your fist. There is also an exclusive pull when you wear the glove that allows you to curve the ball by turning your hand.
The game supports the regular controller as well and it works just as well. Provided you have enough bullets to clear a whole room of blocks, it's not overly difficult and fun. If you run out of them and you have to rely on your glove to attack, it will take forever and get boring. The gameplay is very repetitive. Despite its simple premise, it is difficult to play as there is only one correct route through the game and no map screen. So if you are not sketching your progress, you are wandering aimlessly. The 3D graphics are superb and the shadows make it easy to see where your glove and ball are. Super Glove Ball is an interesting concept, but despite the innovative and well thought-out control scheme, the gameplay falls flat. It may be a bit too ambitious and if you're not a patient player the whole maze aspect gets way too boring after a while.
