Description: Marble Mountain combines the retro gameplay of Marble Madness and Super Monkey Ball with the cinematic experience of Indiana Jones to deliver an exciting adventure anyone can enjoy, but with depth for gamers to master. Balance, roll and puzzle your way through increasingly difficult levels on your way to the top of the mountain.

Most Marble’s spend their days drunkenly smashing into each other or hide in constant fear that the finger of god will come along and flick them. However once in a great while there comes a Marble who is brave enough to leave town and seek glory by traversing to the top of the Mountain and seek the treasure every Marble knows to be there!

Review: Marble games have been around since the start of video games themselves. From 80’s Marble Madness to newer games like Marble Blast Ultra. Now it is time for marble games to enter virtual reality and it has to be said that it kind of works! While a little nauseating at times, whizzing your marble around is a lot easier to control when you have the depth perception that VR gives you. You get to the point when you instinctively know if your ball will break from a drop or not. While I did find the marble town a little weird I did still enjoy finding all the missions and finished off the levels.

Graphics wise this game is more than adequate as with the sound. But it is gameplay where this game shines the brightest. If feels very intuitive and fun at play, even bombing around the marble town is fun! The list of older games I would love to see in VR is almost endless, but marble run wasn’t one of them. But after a few hours gameplay, I am happy it is here.
