Marble games like Kororinpa are interesting but seemingly few and far between. Developer NORDISK FILM has announced to us that their physics-based puzzle game The Marbians will be releasing on July 29th for Android and iOS platforms. The concept of this game is simple: flick marbles around an obstacle course to collect items and safely return to your starting point. The game will feature 64+ levels of increasing complexity and is banking on a cool retro aesthetic. The game is themed around the 1940's and will even feature classic rock tunes.
The game will go for a mere 99 cents (or 1.99 on iPad.) Those curious will be able to download a free demo that includes the first 8 levels of the game. I dig the retro vibe myself and think it's particularly relevant to Destructoid readers. We have a heritage based in retro. You'll notice the game features robots similar to the Smoking Spaceman (inspiration for Mr. Destructoid) in the backgrounds. I recommend checking out the gameplay trailer. The game does feature some interesting level design.
