Marble Blast Gold

Currently it is a computer game....

It is similar to super monkey ball, where you have to roll your little marble thing to the goal. I have the computer version and it is insanely fun and challenging as well.

I already emailed them and I for one hope that they port this game to the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Here is the product page:

Anyone else think this game would rock on the iphone/itouch?

It DOES look like a lot of fun. But graphic-wise, it just isn't cutting it. At least SMB has cool backgrounds, and monkeys.

That video does not do the game justice at all. The graphics are very vivid and colorful, and the frame-rate is good too. I liked super monkey ball but found it way too easy after I got the hang of the controls. This game has more challenging gameplay and more levels. AND you can download user created levels!

I played this on my mac as well and it was really fun. But why is the graphic that ugly?

The ugly graphics are just the video. It is an awesome game and I think it is made on the Unity engine, which means that it could very easily be ported to the iPhone if the devs bought the Unity iPhone publishing liscence.

Actually it's made with torque - Garage Game's own engine.

The XBLA version is MUCH MUCH better, I really liked the online multiplayer which that version had too. If anyone is looking for a game like this then Marble Worlds 2 might be your thing. I got it yesterday and it is pretty challenging and is more of a high score type game based on puzzles in different large levels.

Yep, and Torque is on the iPhone/is still being ported (not quite clear on that), so I'm sure they'll make an iPhone version eventually.

I think it would be great on the iPhone. I played a demo on my Mac and it's actually a really, really great looking game. Nothing like that trailer. Fun gameplay, too. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
