   This game is an absolute classic! This is one of the most playable games
that I have ever played.

   The object of the game is to move your marble through the mazes and get to
the finish line. There are enemies along the way that will try to stop you by
trying to push you off the mazes or stun you so you can't move. There are
other obstacles that you must overcome by precise movements and good timing.
You have a time limit to get to the finish line so you must always be on the
move. The mazes are narrow so you must be careful not to fall off the edges or
you will lose precious time. The faster you complete a level, the more time
you will have to complete the next level.

   The graphics are basic but nice and fit perfectly into this type of game,
but it's the playability that makes this game the classic that it is. This is
a textbook example of taking a simple game without any fancy graphics or sound
and making it so playable that you have no choice but to love it. The game can
be played by either the mouse or joystick and both work well. The difficulty
level is set perfectly and you can't blame anyone but yourself for not doing
well. The only bad thing I can say about the game is that there are not all
that many levels, so the lastability may be in question.

   In conclusion, Even though this game is very old now it is still a joy to
play. This is one of the most playable games that you will ever have the good
fortune to play. It is an ESSENTIAL purchase and you will absolutely love it.
This is one of the greatest games ever, its not perfect but damn close. Do
yourself a big favor and get a copy of this game. You'll thank me!
