Reviews for "Marble Trap"

isometric paradise! I wonder how'd it look with a vaporwave twist?

That took a decent afternoon well spent to complete; of course the last level would be that much of a challenge.

Thought the game was pretty good! The level layout was well done and the little touches like the smoke coming out of the cannons before firing was nice. I do wish there was a bigger variety on hazards though.

its alright, the controls are honestly pretty bad though, if this had some way to be controlled with a gamepad or just simply have a more conventional control scheme, I'd rate it higher

I was ready to give this a low score and a negative review at about level 15, when I was getting frustrated with the unfair cannon timings, the lack of graphical and obstacle variety, the frustrating controls and the uninteresting music. I was still pressing on out of sheer stubborness, maybe a bit of pride.

By level 17 or so, however, something magical happened. I entered a strange state of "flow", in which I stopped thinking too much and started just... "feeling". It's as if nothing else existed but me, the keyboard and the screen. That's when the game "clicked" with me.

I started breezing through levels, finding fast ways to get past even the most annoying obstacle formations, and forgetting all the things that were pissing me off beforehand. My mind was blank, and finishing every level after that point gave me a really satisfying feeling. The momentum the ball acquires as you hold the same direction for extended periods of time, which annoyed and frustrated me before, became a pleasant mechanic after I entered this "trance."

So overall, I ended up enjoying the game a lot, and by the time I reached level 24, I was sad that it was already over. For that reason, I recommend this game to everyone who has a few minutes to spare. Just don't let the losses get to you, and allow yourself to fall into that state of "flow", and the experience will be great. The score is only 3.5/5 because of the boring and repetitive graphics. The music is nice, but there are way too few tunes, too.
