Decent game, just hard to control

Would be more fun if there was a slower moving / beginner version. Otherwise good graphics, fun if you are patient, looks good on a big projector screen

Bad

Not good with the balance board

I have a balance board and wanted to try playing this game with it. Unfortunately, the paths are too narrow and the control is too difficult to make the game enjoyable. I really like the idea of the game (you are a marble rolling along different paths that you try not to fall off) and it could be awesome, but the game is actually too hard. It would be nice to see a beginner's level where the paths were fairly wide so you could learn to control the marble. Another problem was that the camera doesn't switch positions fast enough when you make a turn, which adds to the difficulty of controlling the marble.

It's too bad that the control isn't better, because this cold be an AWESOME game on the balance board. Also, please note that I did not try this game using the Wiimote as I rented it specifically to play with the balance board.

Poor Controlls

The Kororinpa marble series in much better in my opinion. This game is alright a little at a time, but it does get annoying after a while because to me the controls aren't sensitive enough to properly take full control of your marble. What I do like about this game compared to Kororinpa is the fact you aren't turning the board to roll your marble, you actually control the marble. Definately worthy of a try!
