A rather short game I picked up for $2.00 while it was on sale. The price by default is a little steep, so if you get it I'd recommend getting it on sale. The gameplay reminded me of Marble Saga: Kororinpa for the Wii, and that pretty much sold the game for me. Controls very similar to that game as well, gave some nostalgia. After you clear all the levels, you get a level creator that I think could benefit a lot more from Steam Workshop integration. Lots of fun mechanics and levels, especially the last world.

What's unique about this game is that you have the freedom to ride on the walls and even go upsidedown. I like all the textures and the marbles are cool. Collecting them all is really fun. The music is enjoyable and adds to the gameplay too. The levels have a progression that teaches you how to control the ball so that if you fly off the board you can save the ball by landing back on the course.

I really like these types of marble games (marble madness, etc) but this one can barely run on my laptop which can play a lot of AAA titles ok. Definitely potential but unplayable at 10 frames per second

Shockingly enough, the controls are horrendous. The marble barely responds to the mouse moving the platforms; it's absolutely embarrassing how hard it is just to make the marble collect one star. I also disliked the full 180 degree turn the camera makes if you make an attempt to look at the levels better, so essentially you only get two distinct angles of view. And even then when you flip the camera it spins around so quickly that you barely have any time to re-adjust the angle of the floor before the marble goes careening off the edge. The marble itself is painfully sluggish, and with how strict the medal times are it grates on you very quickly and you just want the marble move faster.

Overall there's just no fluent control of the game; it doesn't feel the least bit polished in comparison to games like Monkey Ball, and it succeeds very well in ruining the immerson of the game completely. This game set a personal, land-speed record for me of "Fastest Game Refunded." I cannot recommend this game, at all.

Marble Muse is a little short (2-3 hours to beat all of the levels, maybe about 5-7 hours if you want to 100% complete the game and get all of the achievements) but a lot of fun to play. The levels are very well designed and creative, the difficulty is moderate but fair, and the challenge modes are actually challenging. Definitely recommended for fans of marble games and I think most casual gamers would find it fun as well.

Note: I received a free review copy of the game but received no other compensation for this review.

Marble Muse has been an absolute blast to play so far, Not only do have plenty of levels to play through, you also have multiple challenges within the levels to complete! There is quite a bit more for me to do in the game still and I highly recomend picking this up!

Marble muse is a good game with simple gameplay, but efficient.

I admit it, it's not the best game of all in this kind, but it does the job well.

PS: It run smoothly on small configuration.

Very expensive for something that looks and plays like a mobile game. The graphics are nice, but the performance wasn't as good as I hoped for such a simple game.

It was also quite fustrating. Would rather play Super Monkey Ball on Dolphin emulator for free.

Marble muse is a fun, physics based game.
A Gameplay & Review video showcasing the features I talked about:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa8VlEBq3r0
The main objective of the game, is to collect all the stars scattered in each stage. Once you've obtained them all, you need to then roll into the final giant star to complete the level. The game has decent replay value due to the fact that you earn different medals according to how fast you complete levels.

You can rotate the levels completely freely in any direction with the mouse button, which makes for some really funny moments. If you want, you can flip the entire level upside down, and roll around. Many times secret marbles are hidden here, that once collected, you can use in future levels.

Levels are pretty varied, and have a lot of fun obstacles to overcome. The music also fits the game well, and is a nice accompaniment to the rest of the game.

Overall, a really fun, simple game!
