Description




MarbleBlast is an arcade action game with simple yet addictive gameplay, suitable for players of any age. In the rich cartoon landscape of MarbleBlast, players will race their marbles through moving platforms, dangerous hazards, sparkling treasures and power up enhancements in an effort to complete each course in record time.

MarbleBlast introduces new players to the game with a set of progressively more difficult beginner training levels, each designed to showcase a power up or game hazard. The hazards players will face in MarbleBlast include powerful fans, whirling tornados, land mines, pinball-style bumpers, narrow catwalks, moving pistons, dizzying chasms, and more.

To get past these obstacles, players can find and use five different ability enhancing power ups - the SuperSpeed, SuperJump, SuperBounce, Shock Asbsorber and Gyrocopter. Some levels contain gravity modifiers, which allow the player to change the direction of gravity.

MarbleBlast comes with more than 60 whimsical and challenging levels, as well as the tools for creative players to craft and share their own levels. MarbleBlast is sure to provide many hours of fun for the whole family.

Community Reviews and Discussion

Customer review from Kevin Durrell, Nov 30, 2001 at 00:00 GMT

"Perfect. I don´t know how better to describe the game. The levels are a blast to play. It reminds me of playing old NES games as a kid where they where challenging but never something you got too frustrated with. The only problems I see is that it´s addictive in the past couple days I have almost beat all the levels (though it´s not a short game). Don´t expect to be able to stop once you start. The other problem is that I wish there was more levels. While it´s longer than most games it´s something that you don´t look forward to seeing end."
