Show me Ball-based rendering

People love to hate it and hate to love it but rendering 3D positions with 2D balls is a unique look. I wanna see all the balls!

To start is the game that brought this topic to mind, Docchi Mecha, a good unique RTS on PS1.

My hope here is to discover the indie scene that has pushed ball rendering to the max. 2million balls per frame.

This reminded me of many old Amiga cracktros

“Vaxine is a game in which the miniaturized player character fights a deadly virus from within the body of the President of the United States.”

Also Catz, Dogz, Ballz etc.

Lmao that cracktro gets dirty with it (about at halfway mark).

Vaxine looks like perfect nonsense.

Catz were indeed a descendant of Ballz?
