Marbles in time (4)

I was going to make this longer, but due to another project I cut it short. I threw in the last two level to tie the plot together( it still doesn't make complete sense). There is still a good amount of play time in here, big improvements from the last game! Unfortunately this is the last time Bob the marble will appear on NG :(. Have fun :)

No offense...

Bob the marble is great. The game was fun. I like the new features. BUT, I ask:
How can such a great series end that way? Did Bob actually stop the red marble? Why did he just warp back home? Please, just reconsider making 1 last game, or movie, or whatever to recap how it actually ended. Still your #1 fan, Bloo111.

I haven't left Bob out in the cold completely yet, though its been a while, I still think about making a new game now and then. I've gotten rusty with flash in the past months, I can't promise anything but... I'll look into it.

Not bad, not bad

I like the idea of a coloured marble doing all the work here. Funny idea and it's reall really cute. One thing I would do something about would be to include a helpfile and some more advanced controls. And perhaps some more levels. Also, the sound didn't impress me too much.

But a cute little platformer. Sadly, it will probably get lost between games containing sex drugs and gore. Nothing too original in the gameplay...


I liked this Flash game for a couple of reasons.

The first reason I really enjoyed this is because... it's a game about a marble venturing through levels collecting coins and avoiding obstacles and so on... And somehow you managed to give this game a PLOT. LOL!!! That is awesome that you are clever enough to tie a plot into a game like this.

The second reason I liked this game is because of the overall design. Like Lordmoocow said, I also believe the art and animation could have been a little cleaner and more detailed - but he also hit the nail on the head when he said it's obvious you worked hard on this.

The scripting is near perfect, the interactivity is good. You threw in plenty of obstacles and changed things up well. The playability is good, it could be a little more fun - it gets a little boring but there isn't much you can do about that.

Feature wise, the only thing I could suggest is that you add a main menu, which tends to be a good idea for any Flash - especially games. It offers you a chance to put in a tutorial, credits, a 'quality' selector, a level selector, and many other things. Also, you could add easter eggs, if you didn't. Secrets tend to keep a user playing for longer, in hopes they'll discover your hidden treasures.

And as an aside, you preloader was kinda neat with the interactive gear... thing.

That's about it. Keep working - you are a good animator and and even better programmer.

- 3/5 -

Great game, but there is room for improvement

Excellent. I think the graphics could be better, and some things were a bit hard on the eyes. It looked as if it had been thrown together pretty quickly, but I can tell you probably worked hard on it.

Regardless of that stuff, great concept, great game.


I have no relation to you in any way and decided to review this game which I have never seen before.
Uh, it was good. I enjoy such things as tricky dodgable enemies and such things as music I didn't provide.
Whatever good job, screw everyone who says otherwise

Thank you fellow stranger of which I do not know, or have any idea of appearance. I graciely except your 10, as myhard work deserves a reward.

BUt it gets even out with Mr.H being the awesome teacher he is. Like volunteering at the carnival in which we used toilet paper rolls as bowling palls in the washroom.
