Brightside Entertainment’s 3D arcade physics game, Marble Arena 2, is now available at the Mac App Store. It requires Mac OS X 10.5 and is free.
Here’s how the game is described: “The game features 50 mayhem filled levels, where players will test their skills on several types of surfaces, attempt to master a multitude of physics contraptions and go toe to toe, and sometimes toe to multiple toes, with A.I. controlled enemies bent on preventing players from achieving their goals.
“Making it through all these perils in one piece, and in a certain amount of time, has its benefits. Players are awarded upgrade points for doing so, points that they can use to improve their skills or unlock their favorite from a multitude of marble skins. If single player action is just not enough action, the game provides a fun multiplayer experience, with a dedicated server running 24/7 and gives anyone the ability to host their own server and play with their friends.
“Creative players are given all the tools they‚ll need to create their own levels, in the form of the built in editor. A quick, fun and easy to use set of tools meant to allow anyone to bring their mayhem inducing ideas to life in a matter of minutes and play them right away.
“To complete the experience, the game goes hand in hand with the brand new Marble Arena website, where players are able to post stats, best times and scores, upload replays of their shenanigans or they very own original levels, for others to download, rate and appreciate. The website is also the place to find video walkthroughs for all the levels in the game, video tutorials for all those creative types out there, and a leaderboard for bragging once you make it to the #1 spot.”
