Red Ball 2 features 20 new levels; each level becomes significantly more difficult than the last. The first three levels are designed as tutorial levels to teach new players the primary key controls to help them learn the game. For instance, in level one, players will learn how to move Red Ball from left to right as well as jump from platform to platform and over obstacles. In level two, players learn how to jump and control the ball while jumping and floating through the air. Level three teaches you how to manipulate certain objects in order to advance through the level, such as moving solid boxes to jump to higher platforms.
As you progress through each level, you also need to collect stars along the way. In order to pass each level, you will need to collect a certain amount of stars; you may make it to the end of the level, but if you don’t have all the required stars collected, you won’t complete it! Each level requires a different amount of stars collected. Here’s an example of the various amounts you may be required to collect for each level.
- Level 1 – 3 stars
- Level 2 – 6 stars
- Level 3 – 7 stars
- Level 4 – 9 stars
- Level 5 – 2 stars
- Level 6 – 12 stars
and so on.

In Red Ball 2, you will see many of these same obstacles, as well as some new ones that you may be unfamiliar with. In this version, players can also float through the air and dive underwater in order to collect stars, but be careful! Those nasty thorns are everywhere!
