I, Marble - a retro 80's isometric marble madness type game

Octagon Games is a small team (1 programmer, 1 artist, 1 sound engineer) that assembled from all over the world to recreate and update a classic.
Six months in, we're ready to reveal our isometric marble game: I,Marble...

The game is currently set in 2 worlds, with 6 levels in each. Each level is between 3-5 min in length.
A 3rd futuristic world (and more!) is planned for future release.

Coming soon to mobile platforms (IOS will be first release followed by Android and possibly others)
we're at about 90% completed. Would love to hear any feedback...

The game looks great. I'm a big fan of marble madness. BUT personally I can't stand tilt only games. Are there alternative controls? Would then please both sets of people?

Everything else is great but I hope it won't be tilt only

Absolutely love the gameplay and style, reminiscent of Six Sided Sanctuary (in a good way). Hesitant about the controls, though. I guess that tilt controls like that are common for marble/rolling games, but is there any possibility of touch controls?

Great feedback guys. Let's say it's been on my list "to do" to incorporate the swipe controls or virtual trackball as an alternative to tilt. It plays well with the tilt controls, but I'd love to have both in there even if it doesn't make it into initial release... stay tuned. No promises, but I'll give it a go and see what programming magic I can make happen.

Looks cool. It looks like it can be as frustrating as marble madness.

Do you need any beta testers ?

We've had a private invite only beta ongoing for the past few months of development. We have a few more things to polish up, but then I can open things up for a small public beta here in a few weeks for those that are interested and would like to give feedback. We'll post something here when we're ready.
