Marble Roller

My fast paced version of an old favourite! Clear the levels by firing same-coloured marbles into the playfield. Bombs will clear everything below. Keep the fire-button pressed to use aftertouch, release the button or bounce the marble off a wall to let the marble go. The game will end if the marbles go off the bottom of the screen.

Use the mouse to control the aim, and left-click to fire.
Arrow-down to speed up the drop.
Esc to open the game menu.

*UPDATE* Removed the annoying "Lock" on the pointer when the level is moving! Also slowed down the ticker slightly.
Rewrote the code to check for unconnected marbles and make them roll off the screen.

Some Issues

Not a terrible game. There are a few issues as far as the gameplay goes.

First the wall moves too quickly, I understand it's supposed to be fast paced but instead of moving in a large interval in a matter of seconds you could instead have it move in small intervals constantly and still gain the same effect.

Secondly the firing system is kind of slow compared to the wall moving. Plus not being able to fire while the wall is moving means an added difficulty that should just not be there.

Other than that I liked the aftertouch system. The graphics are well done and the sounds are nice. You could add some music to help get into the game, though.

Could be really good

Very nice style, I love the idea of those balls that are being pushed down. But I have to agree it seems a bit too fast.


Although this game has been done a ton of times, i like the graphics in this one. I think that when the top is moving down you should still be able to shoot, i can't tell you how many times the top moved down unexpectedly while I was trying to shoot which resulted in me losing my position. Also, I didn't even know it didn't shoot sometimes because the sound for it shooting still plays. This one definitely needs some improvement.
