FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
illumineX ships MarbleX for Mac OS X
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, October 10, 2001 –
illumineX today announced the availability of MarbleX, a new arcade game
for Mac OS X.
MarbleX is an all new implementation of one of the most popular NeXTSTEP
arcade games. Totally redesigned with a bright new Aqua interface, and
sporting all new graphics and new game-play levels, MarbleX is ready to
entertain millions of new Mac OS X fans.
One volunteer illumineX beta tester, Jim Reid, said, “Every time I turn
around, my iBook is missing. When I find it, sure enough, my wife or my
grandkids are playing MarbleX!”
MarbleX follows in the footsteps of BabelBloX, making extensive use of the
modern OS features found in Mac OS X. The MarbleX look and feel reflects
the design intent of the Aqua interface, without copying it verbatim. This
gives the game a nice flavor on Mac OS X. It fits in well, and yet it’s
fresh and original.
MarbleX provides full Mac Help, including strategy tips and a description
of the physics of the game, an animated dock icon, and both Windowed & Full
Screen display modes. MarbleX also features a “Chrome” theme for the game
