Description

Marble Mayhem is a 3D puzzle platformer similar to Marble Madness or the more contemporary Switchball where the player guides a marble through hazardous courses. The player controls a real, see-through marble through several environments. Typical puzzles involve moving platforms, titled courses, spring tiles, cannons and avoiding pitfalls.

The player is able to morph into different marbles to solve puzzles: regular, rubber or lead. The rubber marble has more speed, is lighter and is immune to electricity. The lead marble is very heavy and slow to move, but it can break through glass windows. Movement is done through the keyboard and the mouse is used to look around and steer. Clicking the left mouse button provides a short boost and the marbles are also able to jump. The game introduces some enemies: the shocker is able to stun marbles and bashers will try to push you off the course. During certain sequences, players need to navigate mazes, avoid being caught by bashers or duel basher marbles to push them over the edge.

Different worlds are entered through a main hub and the game mechanics are explained in a tutorial.
