[Featured App Review] Marbles Multiball 3D – The Castle Adventure

Jun 20, 2010 by

Marbles Multiball 3D – The Castle Adventure by Mad Processor Games is an amazing spin on a traditional labyrinth game available on the iTunes app store for the measly price of $0.99.

Now this is what you get. An uber long clumped review after not writing one for so long. Enjoy.

So, first impressions? Sinister. Considering the loading and pre-menu sounds, I was actually a little scared. But then, I heard the music in the menu and I felt good. The music was amazing. Another point that I’d like to bring up is that it is in HD for iPad, which is automatically included in the app. So, you get two versions of the game, HD and SD for $0.99.

– Very accurate accelerometer control makes controlling the game completely intuitive. And you can even play it upside down! Either way you play, please point the back of the device to the floor or the ceiling for optimal control.

– Great sound effects and soundtrack

– Highly accurate physics simulation

It’s true. When I started to play the game, I enjoyed how it wasn’t a normal labyrinth but instead, colourful, detailed and just plain awesome. When I tilted my iPod, the amount of interaction with the player and the background and the ball amazed me.

So, for all you other labyrinth games, you could follow in Marbles Multiball 3D – The Castle Adventure’s footsteps.

If you haven’t done so, check out Parcel Panic 3D by Mad Processor Games. The graphics in that game are amazing. The fact that the developer creates such detailed games that must’ve taken forever to make and offers them for $0.99 inspires me. For example, Call Of Duty 1 and 2 ($4.99 as in-app purchase) are $9.99 each. It’s a game where you try to survive as long as possible. Usually not very difficult to develop. Being up tp $19.98, it is a rip-off (but still fun) whereas the Mad Processor games are $1.98 in total and offer way more fun in the form of missions and graphics and sounds and pretty much every aspect of the game.

Oh, by the way, did I mention that when you start playing the game, the sounds are sinister again? One problem I had with the game is that it is too sensitive. So, take your pick. Sensitivity or interaction. Let’s total it.

Graphics: 4/5 – Above average.
UI: 4/5 – Not bad.
Gameplay: 4.5/5 – Depends on your tastes.
Creativity: 2.5/5 – Been done before.
Sound: 4.5/5 – Sinister but good.
Controls: 3/5 – Too sensitive, can’t change that.
Difficulty: 4/5 – Pretty difficult considering the sensitivity.
Length: 3.5/5 – You can’t go wrong with 42 maps.
Entertainment: 4/5 – Pretty fun.
Value: 5/5 – Told ya.

Total: 39/50 or 78% – Awesome.
