Marble Marcher features a beautiful blend of fractals and Super Monkey-Ball-esque ball rolling as you make your way through fifteen real-time ray traced levels played out on the surface of evolving fractals.
The gameplay and gall physics of Marble Marcher is pretty similar to the Super Monkey Ball games, with you attempting to roll your glass orb from the start point to the end point of the level in as short a time as possible. Visually it’s very different from Sega’s monkey-filled ball roller though – every level is a giant 3D evolving fractal that looks more like a work of art than a level in a video game.
Some levels are easy, some are hard, some are stationary and some move around but they all look incredible and they’re all fun to try and conquer. If you do fancy a break and just want to enjoy the artwork though, Marble Marcher also has a Screen Saver mode where you can watch the beautiful fractals evolve.
Because the levels are hand-picked fractals but not hand crafted, some levels do feel like they’re not designed to be a video game level (because they’re not), but it makes for a thoroughly unique experience with some jaw-dropping sights and challenging gameplay. Part video game, part fractal art showcase and a whole lot of fun. Highly recommended.
