About This Game

Oh look, it's just another "marble" game. What is this, 1984? Wait...I can control three marbles at once? Well that's completely different and kind of cool. I get to use my marbles together to solve puzzles, all with tight controls and awesome physics? Tell me more!

Well thank you for asking. Each marble has a different material and special power: Rubber can jump, Paper can shrink, and Metal can boost. They interact with the world as you might expect: Rubber floats on water, Paper burns in fire, Metal uses its sheer mass to destroy things. Combine the strengths of each marble to overcome a multitude of hazards as you race to the end of each level in search of the fastest time!

Welcome to Lost Marbles. We hope you enjoy your stay.

3 marbles and one goal - survive deadly puzzles and make your way to the end. Well, actually the puzzles aren't too difficult, because solutions came out by themself when you play and it's kinda good. Each marble have its own ability, rubber can jump, paper can shrink and metal can boost. All of them have to reach finish line to complete level. Controls are more "sticky" ones, so there are no acceleration at all after releasing directional button. Cartoonish graphic style included.

Lost Marbles concept is pretty straightforward: control and guide marbles, from the beginning of a level to the end. There are three types of marbles you will control. First, a rubber marble that can jump, swim in water and survive electrical damage. Second, a paper marble that can change its size to fit into smaller spaces and moved away on wind. Third, a metal marble that can be affected by magnets, ignore damage from fire and spikes, and accelerate forward to break through barriers. All of the marbles must reach the end of any given level in order for the stage to be completed. The puzzles require coordination and straight up puzzle solving. The controls are incredibly simple: roll your ball with the WASD keys, and change your camera angle by moving the mouse. Beyond this, a hardcore mode is available, tasking you with having to complete the levels perfectly in a raw, while failures sending you back to the beginning of the previous level. Which can be very disappointing and annoying, but fun in some wicked sense of humor way. Lost Marbles is a solid, decently polished game that delivers some well crafted challenge. If you are on the hunt for a new puzzle game to challenge you, this one is at least worth a look. Overall, the game was pleasant, refreshing and frustrating.

Fun puzzle game in the vein of Lost Vikings (once you get past a few levels), wherein you control three spheres of various materials (paper, metal, rubber), all reacting to different obstacles in differing ways.

Only suggestion I'm going to give you: don't play on Hardcore mode, because when they tell you 'no checkpoints', what they really mean is 'every death is going to send you back a full level', and yes, this CAN lead to negative progress through the game.
