Best marble-popper puzzle game (avaliable!)

Mine is Sparkle the Game.
I know some of you will pick stoneloops but it's not in stores so resist from doing that! Just pick second best in this case.

I'm a little into the marble shooting games as well and recently picked up these within the past week.

Sparkle
Atlantis Sky Partrol
Puzzloop Endless
Bonsai Blast
Blackbeards Assualt
Tumblebugs
and even....Luxor (never played Stoneloops, not available)

Actually, the Stoneloops case is one of the few reasons I'm somewhat grateful for places that host cracked apps.

Curiously enough, the last time I mentioned this I was blindly accused of supporting piracy, even though I'm not - hopefully people in this thread will be able to better appreciate the context.

I would put Sparkle and Atlantis Sky Patrol as the best two. Sparkle is a little harder so would say it beats out ASP, but not by much, imo. I like that ASP has a laser (Luxor has one too), wished they all had them instead of touching the marbles to shoot.

It's Funny since those two were the firsts I bought... Then Blackbeard's Assault

Atlantis sky patrol is currently my favorite, but sparkle is definitely a close second.

Worst?
LUXOR.

Yea, I like Blackbeards Assault being it has its own unique twist in shooting duel cannons/ marbles and I kind of like the art and theme as well. I think both Tumblebugs and Bonsai Blast are both pretty good and as well as Puzzloop Endless. Non are actually sub-par imo. Each is worth the play value for the money. Puzzloop for $8 is out of my price range though.

Luxor is okay..
hated Mostly because Stoneloops fans think the game is a ripoff of game
rest because of the fact that you start at the beginning of the stages when you lose
I'd buy it just cause it's 99 cents but IMO ASP is waaay better

Personally I like Sparkle the most. But then again I've only tried that and ASP.
