Practice mode in Winkel Ball allows you to hone your skills for other modes or just chill out and bounce the ball around. When you start a practice game, the room is randomly generated based off the setup options that you selected.
The objective for practice mode is still to get the key and get out the door. The difficulty in doing that is up to you based off the options that you choose during setup. This mode is similar to Endless mode in that there are no stars to collect, however you can still get a score if you choose to turn that option on.
The simplest default setting has no spikes, just the regular blocks and everything can be broken inside the room perimeter. This can be great to relax and just watch the ball bounce around or to sit a young child down with as there are no time restrictions and you cannot lose any lives.
