Gem Ball is a single-player mini-game that was first released during the Beta Testing in 2010. It is located on the second floor of the Chamber of Knowledge, across from Mira Says. Like most games, it can also be played at the Sol Arcade and through the Games menu.


The player controls a spring-loaded rod that tosses the ball into the grid of pins. The speed of the ball can be controlled by clicking and holding down the button to increase the power of the spring. If the player hits and consequently lights up all three Zios faces, they will receive a 75 Gems bonus jackpot. The ball will eventually land in one of several slots that are numbered based on their Gems value.


There are six achievements that can be earned by playing Gem Ball:
