The Marbians

The Marbians

Aside from zombies, aliens are probably the most exhausted video game antagonist, protagonist and/or subject matter. There is nothing wrong with this, but if you really think about it, there is a breaking point for every gamer who always encounters the same things over and over again. The Marbians is an alien-themed physics puzzler. Physics puzzlers in browser games format get released in bulk every day. I have played lots and lots of these physics puzzler-type games, enough so that I believe I am armed with the right to judge accordingly. The Marbians, though polished and streamlined, is nothing really special. Yes, the graphics are smooth, good-looking and vibrant. However, The Marbians feels like a basic version of what a physics puzzler should be. Gameplay goes like this: you “shoot” your alien friends back to their UFOs. At first, you only have one try to do it, but in the later stages, you are given lots of tries as the level designs get complex. More aliens are introduced, more obstacles, moving ledges, rotating sticks and many more. Another thing, you can optionally collect the blue orbs to truly complete a level, the kind of gimmick seen in each and every physics puzzler on Kongregate, Newgrounds, etc. Honestly, I don’t appreciate collecting the optional star, orb, fruit, etc., since it tickles my obsessive-compulsive side. Kidding aside, completionists would love this game because of this.
