It's not impossible, it just required some forward planning.

You just had to make sure that the 3rd part of level 6 was the last part of the game to complete.

I grew up with Wizball on the Atari ST and I would play it over and over again, and I completed the game numerous times.

The ST version was not bad at all, one of the better ones by Peter Johnson. The graphics window is a bit small and the sound a bit poor, but it plays very well.

It seems like the ST version has a horrid bug though. After having finished the 2nd blue level, it is disabled and does not allow to collect any more blue drops. On the C64 it stays intact as there is no 3rd blue level.
This way, it is basically impossible to solve the game.

One of the first games by Sensible Software (creators of Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder). Wizbal is truly an amazing and original game. Pure classy nostalgia! And an unforgettable chiptune!

There was a follow up created a couple of years later called Wizkid.

"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'" -- Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve Jobs, on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal computer
