Projects / Trackballs


Trackballs is a simple game similar to the classic game Marble Madness. By steering a marble through a track filled with vicious hammers, pools of acid, and other obstacles the player collects points. When the ball reaches the destination, the player continue to the next, more difficult track - unless, of course, time runs out first.
