8:17 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

GarageGames has released the Mac version of their highly acclaimed title, Marble Blast. The Mac demo features five playable levels and access to several of the game's power up items. The full version of Marble Blast, available at GarageGames' website for $14.95, includes 72 levels, a variety of power up bonuses and additional hazards.

Marble Blast is an arcade action game with simple yet addictive gameplay, suitable for players of any age. In the rich cartoon landscape of Marble Blast, players will race their marbles through moving platforms, dangerous hazards, sparkling treasures and power up enhancements in an effort to complete each course in record time.

Here's more from the official press release on the release:

"Marble Blast looks so sweet on OS X and this game was made with the Mac in mind,? comments Mark Frohnmayer, the Marble Blast project lead. ?Being able to bring our first Mac game out from the Torque Game Engine only five weeks after the Windows version launched is a very exciting."

"The response we got from gamers at MacWorld was a resounding 'Wow'. So much fun, so colorfully animated and so addictive, no one believed it was less than 20 MB and only $14.95." said Jay Moore, Evangelist for GarageGames, "Mac users appreciated the Blast lines non-violent content and family fun and the number of comments around how many people want games that they can play with all their friends and family guilt free was very interesting."

MarbleBlast requires the following:

  • Macintosh OS X (version 10.1 or greater)
  • G4 Processor Recommended
  • 64 MB RAM
  • OpenGL Compatible 3D Graphics Accelerator
