    Probably the best NES platformer without the word 'Mario' in the title.

    Marble Madness is fun but short game. It is alot harder than you would think, Cheat codes will come in handy when you can't beat the time. There are about 6 levels, yes it is very short but addicting, and great to have a... Read Full Review

    Short, frustrating and addicting, just live my review, expect for the addicting part.

    This was been released for a plethora of systems, and started it's life in the arcade, where you used a trackball. I have actually played this game on a couple of systems, but chose the NES, because it were there I playe... Read Full Review

    Amazingly Addictive.

    If you asked people what their top 3 most memorable NES games were, you would probably never see someone list Marble Madness. An unassuming puzzler/platformer that took patience, twitch timing and good planning to defea... Read Full Review

    An addictive and worthy port of its predecessor, this maze classic is great for two people or even playing alone.

    The arcade classic made it as a port by Milton Bradley themselves and brought back the fun of trying to maneuver a marble through a maze filled with deadly obsticles and pitting players against the clock in a race to a f... Read Full Review
