Dos Marble Madness DOS front cover

4.7 /5
Everything you know is wrong in this classic marble-rolling arcade game.

The idea of this arcade game is deceptively simple: Guide a marble down a path without hitting any obstacles or straying off the course. The game is viewed from an isometric perspective, which makes it harder to stay focused on the direction the ball is to follow. Play Marble Madness online!

Marble Madness game description

There are tight corridors to follow and enemies to avoid. There is a 2-player mode in which players must race to the finish; otherwise you’re racing against the clock.

Marble Madness is played from an isometric third-person perspective. The object of the game is to maneuver a colored marble through several different courses in the constraints of a time limit. Each ends when the marble reaches an end goal (marked “GOAL”). The player’s marble carries momentum and a rudimentary physics model provides most of the challenge, as it is easy to fall off the side of the narrow courses.

Finishing a course adds the remaining time to the limit placed on the next course. In the original arcade release, the player used a trackball to control the movement of the marble. Later home versions changed the controls to a directional pad or other control mechanism.
