A Maze Ball

by NightShadow0 - Mini LD 47 Entry

Marble maze simulator with Marble Madness-like levels.

This isn't a remake of my first game because i can't remember much about it. Rather, it's a re-imagining of a few concepts i had in some of my early paper-based games.

As a kid i had a wooden marble maze just like the one in the game, and i used it as a sort of level selector for my games: each hole would lead to a different level. Back then the maze was just for choosing levels and the games were completely different, but for this i wanted to use the same mechanic. The levels are based off some old maze drawings of mine.

The intention was to populate each hole with a level but the mechanic isn't as fun as i envisioned, so i stopped after the first three. Either way, the game ends when you finish the maze.

Very nice work. Love the art and use of your puzzle board theme.

So frustrating. I'm terrible at these puzzles in real life and this brings back all the same feelings of "man... I stink at this!"

Nice idea. Mouse control would make it probably more fun.

I was able to finish the first 2 levels, but gave up on the third..

When I tried to stop the ball, it sometimes happened that the ball got stuck in mid air and I had to push it from below to get it moving again. Happened especially in level 1 when I rolled right and then tried to stop the ball.

I can imagine that this game would work rather well on phones and tablets.
