Marble Duel Evaluation – Era Xbox


Marble Duel was reviewed on the Xbox One.

Marble Duel is a casual-indie recreation the place you play with marbles. You may verse AI (In “story mode”) and generally your folks (If in the identical room). Marble Duel initially launched in 2013 and was developed and printed by HeroCraft. Does it maintain up in 2021?

The Story and Characters

Marble Duel begins with you watching a cutscene of a small lady being attacked by a wolf.

A boy then saves this lady telling the wolf to go away her alone and the lady to get to security.

Marble Duel is ready in a kind of metropolis by the seems to be of issues – presumably a county to be pedantic. The sport begins with you versing this wolf named Borgos and he’s an annoying wolf who thinks he is aware of all the pieces. You then beat him and he backs away and within the subsequent stage you meet a brand new man named Sebastian. If I’m trustworthy Sebastian seems to be like he wants dental reconstruction.

The Premise of The Recreation

The sport consists of you hitting in marbles that it’s important to kind of make a Sweet-Crush-Like line-up. You want three marbles of the identical color to have the ability to earn these marbles.

In fact, there are completely different colors of marbles: Crimson – which provides you with assault factors (So if there are Three crimson marbles you’ll take Three well being level off of your opponent.), Blue – which provides to a proportion of defending that your character obtains and Inexperienced – which provides to your well being factors. 

It’s kind of a puzzle-like recreation as effectively with the actual fact it is advisable look forward. What may be avalible to you now could possibly be snatched up by your opponent.

The sport comes with a giant map so that you can play by. There are simply 60 ranges there most likely extra. My drawback is the degrees all appear very a lot the identical kind of factor. I’ve thought I’ve recognised ranges from earlier factors within the recreation.

Part For The A/V Nerds.

The soundtrack to the sport is truthfully fairly good. With an adventurous tone to it. Performed by what seems like a orchestra it’s excellent with the sport and creates a fantastic atmosphere.

The visuals are fairly spectacular within the title display and plenty of different screens a ripple impact reveals across the button you’re deciding on. There may be a lot element put into all the pieces whether or not it’s a small marble or a complete character it’s superbly accomplished. 

As a lot because the character that you simply versing adjustments each dozen ranges the premise is essentially the identical. This wouldn’t be an issue if the sport was extra advanced although all you’re doing is taking pictures marbles at marbles.

Why I Didn’t Love It

It kind of seems like Marble Duel could have been higher as a cellular recreation quite than console and PC. Is sensible, because it was initially constructed for cellular. The truth that there may be little or no to do in it, and it may take only a few hours to finish. It generally seems like achievements are awarded for probably the most mundane issues.

The sport is kind of laid out like Sweet Crush. The mechanics within the recreation are very easy. Among the language within the recreation is even fairly child-like. Let’s simply say it’s nothing like Blizzard’s Hearthstone. And for that matter I don’t anticipate any large expansions to return out for it. 

What’s Flawed With it?

I simply suppose the sport is being pushed to the improper viewers. Xbox and PC gamers often go to their console for a difficult and enjoyable expertise. Marble Duel is extra of a recreation that’s there to take you thoughts off issues. Most individuals that must take their head away from issues are busy and won’t have consoles. I feel this might do nice on the app shops. Aside from that the sport is alright.

Disagree with what I take into consideration this recreation? Nicely fortunate for you we just lately opened our new Discord server, so you may maintain my opinion in opposition to me right here. Need all the newest in Xbox information? Press HERE!
