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.

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.

It may not have the most eyecandy visuals, but boy does the gameplay make up for it! It can get very challenging. If you like puzzle games, you will really like this!

9/10 Very addicting gameplay. Loving it so far. I expect that I'll be coming back to this again and again when I need a break from my serious gaming.

A bit sad to give this one a thumbs down. If you expect something with the quality of "Ballance" (the one by Atari) or Hamsterball, you will be disappointed. In it's own way it's kinda nice. Having three balls with different abilities is kind interesting, but: The marbles just feel odd, mainly because there isn't much in terms of inertia - they halt almost instantly and that just feels unnatural if you've played (for example) the other two I've listed above, they also all feel the same. Here and there I miss some checkpoint and it just feels a bit amateurish. I'll play it and kinda enjoy it on the basis that there is a lack of alternatives, but I can't really recommend it either. If you feel adventurous and if you are a die-hard fan of that kind of games then you may still wanna give it a try. Also: Use mouse and keyboard - just doesn't work that nice with a controller.

I had the balls to make this game without guns, zombies or Minecraft in it. Do you have the balls to buy it? Also this game has balls in it.

I'd love to tell you this is a nice Marble Madness/Monkey Ball-type-of-game - but sadly, it isn't anything like those games.

First problem is that the thing you control may look like a marble/ball but it doesn't act like one. You control the ball (not the world ala Monkey Ball) and the ball has minimal inertia (unlike Marble Madness) so if you release the controls, the ball just stops (that's not how balls work!?)

Second problem is the visual style. Whilst not unpleasant to look at, it completely fails to give you any sense of depth or position in the world. There's almost no way to judge jumps unless you're constantly panning the camera (you cast no shadow until you've almost landed) and objects cast minimal-if-any shadows which means there's no sense of depth/distance/perspective to work from either.

I didn't get that far in, but even early-on the levels veer away from 'game of skill and reactions' to 'memory test with stuff you don't see until it's too late' and that gets pretty frustrating.

All that said, it's perfectly playable as-is, but it feels unpolished and I think a lot of people will be disappointed...
