I played the demo, liked it and r downloading the purchased version as I write this :) Wonder if there is a way to disable the stupid “Ready.. Set.. Go!” sequence at the start of the level. It gets real annoying, especially on levels where I die repeatedly at the beginning. Hope there are more games in the trend of nice, cheap and downloadable. The Torque engine seems like it might bring us more of that (although sadly I noticed most of the games listed on the GarageGames site don’t run on Linux).
I love this game, its one of those mad, games that ok, while not looking graphically the best in the world, is very,very addictive,
I played the demo for 5 mins and then bought the game, and so far played it more that UT2003
Excellent, and well worth the money…
This game is awesome. I’m half tempted to try my hand at a Torque-based game now, myself. Make a real RPG or something, given the disappointment NWN is (after playing it). MarbleBlast is much more fun.
It has some problems on my Voodoo 3 2000 card (some textures seem to be missing, especially in the menus), but I highly recommend it for people looking for games where they DON’T go around shooting people :^)
