Bounce off the floor instead of going splat. Great for travelling a few extra meters.
This gadget activates immediately after Barry's death. A pink sphere encases Barry and bounces three times before breaking. Barry's velocity when he hits the ground determines the Insta-Ball's effectiveness. Barry will bounce higher, and subsequently farther, if he dies near the top of the screen, or while falling from the top of the screen than he will bounce more than if he dies while running on the ground.
Barry will bounce no lower than the midpoint of the screen and no higher than the top (so he won't bounce off the ceiling). The height, and subsequently the distance, Barry bounces decreases with each bounce if possible. However, if the Gravity Belt gadget is also being used, his bounce height and distance increases if possible instead of decreases after each bounce.
If the Insta-Ball is used with the Freeze-O-Matic, the Insta-Ball will activate first. Once the Insta-Ball breaks, the Freeze-O-Matic will activate, increasing the distance traveled after death.
