The bumbleball is a new puzzle element created by Skotty and Moth of Team Citruz.

If the bumbleball is outside of the players view it will bounce around every 2 seconds, making a distinctive sound when bouncing. They're *very* different to spheres, and behave differently to blue painted cubes, making them unique in this respect.
