Description:
Roll your marble through 30 levels of ramps, loop de loops, and interesting landscapes. Along the way find power ups to increase your speed, jumping ability or strength and use them to collect the hidden gems, race through the checkpoints and get the fastest time.

Marble Blast is an action arcade game employing a standard FPS interface (or a “simple” interface for newbies) to roll your marble through 30 levels of timed action. Some races involve pure speed and finding the best path from the start to the end goal. Others are more adventurous, requiring the use of power ups, collecting required items, speeding through checkpoints, and avoiding hazards.

Power ups will include SuperSpeed, SuperJump, StickyMarble, SuperBounce, Indestructo, and TimeBonus.

Level objects will include Teleporters, Elevators, Trampolines, Magnets, Wind Tunnels, and some form of interesting Lock/Key combinations.

Hazards include falling off the edge of the world (although this is not the focus of the game), getting smashed by pistons or swinging pendulums, getting sucked up by vacuum cleaners, hit by rogue marbles or being blown up by a mine.

Combining all of these objectives, power ups, and hazards into both large and small levels creates a satisfying progression of levels that begin quite simply, then progress up to complicated and interesting. Some levels will be timed Treasure Hunts, others will simply require that your marble survives to the finish line.
