MY PROMISE
My games are genuine, install in one step, look, sound and play in Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP like they did in the old days, or your money back. This is my unconditional guarantee for three years.

WHAT IS INCLUDED
This listing includes the original game CD. An on-screen printable manual is also included. The box is pictured for reference and is not included.

I will also provide a compatibility CD that will allow the game to run under ALL VERSIONS of Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP, both 32 and 64 bit.

INSTALLATION
One step: Insert my CD and the game will automatically work on your computer. Done. Yes, it's that simple.

Want to play? Click the icon. Want the game off your computer? Click Uninstall. Zero hassle.

TECH SUPPORT
Rapid response technical support for three years is always an e-mail or phone call away.

In the extremely rare event I cannot get this title to work on your system I will take it back for a full refund. All I ask is minimal assistance from you during the troubleshooting process.

 

The Game
Ten years after the success of SimCity, Maxis has introduced its first puzzle game, Marble Drop. Against the backdrop of beautifully rendered Leonardo daVinci sketches, the player attempts to navigate colored marbles through a Rube Goldberg-esque series of ramps and elevators, hoping that the marble's final resting place will be in the correspondingly colored bin. Not as simple as it sounds. Every marble released radically alters the path of the marbles that follow. There are teleporters, buzzsaws, cannons, and crossbows that shoot your marble, and ramps may vanish off the playfield or lead your marble into an infinite loop.

The mini-games --each named after a philosopher-- get progressively harder as the player advances and each mini-game can be saved and returned to at a later time. Of course this is a Maxis game so keeping track of resources is important. You don't want to run out of marbles or money.

There are many perpetual-motion machine games that are primarily about the mechanics of movement, levers and physics. Another game, "The Incredible Machine", more reminiscent of Rube Goldberg inventions, and a bit more complicated, is also on the market. But my favorite of this genre is "Marble Drop". It's fun and non-violent and one gets a daily does of philosophy and physics.
