Get your 1940's vibe on with The Marbians on the 29th


3:00 AM on 07.26.2011



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.
