Rolling Marbles brings an unusual combination of logic and action in a simple but compelling new game. In each level, you burst marbles by grouping them in fours and sixes of the same color. In puzzle levels, you start with a board full of marbles and must get rid of them all. In action levels, the marbles balloon out of ports in the board and fall toward the bottom. The unregistered version, which you can download FREE, lets you experiment with ten levels, both action and logic.

Requirements

Let's try this one more time.

Went to the posted URL and got:

"404 / File Not Found
The requested page is not part of our site."

Followed the link there to Tibo's homepage. This game is only listed "For Windows 95/98/NT4/Me/2000/XP." They don't list a Mac version.

The instructions say that you eliminate marbles by putting them in either blocks of 4 (2x2 square), 6 (2x3 square). Tried both of those to eliminate the checkered ones. Even tried various other configurations with the remaining checkered marbles. Nothing worked. If the rules changed for this level, they should have been stated in the initial instructions. You shouldn't have to access a separate webpage to find out how it works.

Don't get me wrong, I liked this game as far as I got. It just seems that the support and documentation is a bit sloppy.

The reviewer who said the checkered balls don't burst misunderstood the puzzle in level 7 -- you have to rotate the marbles in such a way that the checkered ones will explode as well. A complete solution is available at www.tibosoftware.com/rm_solutions.htm.

Interesting game, but the demo sticks at the 7th level (10 are promised) with no way to complete it. Eliminate all 6 red marbles and there is no way to eliminate the remaining checkered ones. Time just runs out and you fail that level. This doesn't bode well for buying the full version.
