What Gamespot Users have to say about Marble Madness

  • Rating:8.5

    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

    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

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

    Marble Madness is the definition of "platformer" in it's purest sense. The game requires a great deal of patience, skill, and expert timng. The object of the game is to race marbles through an isometric labyrinth while a... Read Full Review

    This is the game for you if a) you like pulling out your hair, or b) you are into games with a high frustration factor!

    In this game you guide a marble through an obstacle course and in a pseudo 3-D environment. It is very challenging and there are sometimes dead ends that prevent you from reaching the next point. Oh, to top off all of th... Read Full Review

    Very Original

    Although it may not be the best NES game out there, it is definitely original. Hitting a Marble against a bunch of walls and trying not to let it crack may not prove to be the best pasttime, it sure is addicting. I've pl... Read Full Review

    This is a really great port of the original arcade classic. Don't beleive the crap review!

    Okay, why would I give this mobile game such a high rating? It's simple... out of all (and I mean ALL) of the Marble Madness ports, conversions, and clones... this one comes the closest to recreating the play and feel of... Read Full Review
