Marble Craze is a homebrew game that I wrote for the Atari 2600. It is a side by side split-screen one or two player game where you roll a marble along a path across multiple screens to a finish line. The game uses paddle controllers, and it is the first game where each player uses two paddles to control the marble: one is used to control the vertical movement and the other is used for the horizontal.

The goal is to navigate through each level within the time limit and in later levels, without falling off the edges. There are bonuses, hidden areas, ramps and a lot of other stuff to keep it interesting. It's got 18 levels that go from very easy to insanely hard, and several in-game songs that push the Atari 2600's sound chip to its limits.


Buy Marble Craze cartridges at the Atariage store!!!

Download Marble Craze NTSC and PAL ROMs here. Note that due to the dual-paddle control scheme, the game is unplayable under emulation unless you have a Stelladaptor to hook up real paddles to your PC.
