Description: Marble Land is a physics-based puzzle game that was designed primarily for VR. The purpose of the game is to guide a rolling marble on the correct path to its target destination by changing the configuration of the elements in the level. The game contains 45 levels of increasing difficulty, split across three different environments: the desert, the cave and the mountain.
There is no time limit on the puzzles and you can try as many different approaches as you like in order to find the solution. Marble Land offers an immersive and comfortable experience that doesn’t induce any VR motion sickness. It can be played using a gamepad or motion controllers, either as a sitting, standing or room-scale VR experience. It can also be played as a non-VR game, with mouse and keyboard or a standard controller.
Review: Marble Land is a classic style marble puzzle game where you have to get a ball from point A to B. Graphical wise this game is OK. While the scenery around you doesn’t really change the levels do and to be fair they are nice looking and surprisingly detailed. With some nice sound effects and freedom to look and move wherever you want there is a lot to love about this game. Sadly its price point is on the edge of overpriced in my opinion. While you do get 45 levels to play (and that will take you a few hours at least) for its non-sale price of £11.39 I do think it is a little too much. But I did still enjoy the game and found myself getting into it for a few hours at a time. While some will fly through this game and question what they paid for, others (like myself) who are not that great at puzzle games might find this a long-lasting challenge and worth the money.
