Marble Maze Ultra

Anyone purchased this game? How does it feels compared to the original Labyrinth ($6.99) game? Smooth gameplay, realistic board sound?

Is the game play smooth? How's the sound effect when the marble is rolling, hitting the board. Sounds original from Labyrinth?

Oops!

A new labyrinth style game has just come out called Marble Maze Ultra. I couldn’t find any videos from the iPhone version yet, but here’s one from an older version of the game for Symbian phones.

Youtube link | Pop Up


It doesn’t look like much, but I took the plunge since it’s only 99 cents (limited time price). It seems like a nice start. It doesn’t have much polish, but it adds some interesting new ideas to this tried and true genre.

Here’s a screenshot from the iPhone version.

In this game, you move more than just the ball. You have blocks that also react to your tilt that will get in the way. You have to manipulate these blocks as well as the ball.

The levels seem short, at least to start. And the fact that you need to tap four times between each level is a little maddening, but it seems to me like 99 cents well spent. If you liked any of the other labyrinth games, this one might also be worth a few of your pennies.

The marble seems to be bigger in Marble Maze Ultra than in Labyrinth.

I didn't notice the difference, but the gamplay is as good as the laberynth one. Some average time it takes to beat a level is 45 seconds.

Of these types of games my favourite is Resco Bubbles, i bought it at .99 cents and I would recomend it even if it was at 2.99. The marble maze and then laberynth b/c the price tag isn't worth what you get.

Cool game. Bought it and it is fun. Controls like Labrynth, but it is different gameplay.

How did you find out about it? As it isn't in search results yet.
