Guide the lost ball Poly through a mysterious and beautiful marble maze
Poly and the marble maze is about a ball on an epic quest to jump over some blocks, collect diamonds and capture the flag. Think of it as an adventurous golf ball which decided to fight the Man and complete the holes all by itself.
The game has been designed taking inspiration from the ‘Monument Valley’ school of design where the surrounding landscape stretches on forever with simple colours.
However, whereas in Monument Valley the focus was on understanding the different perspectives in each level, Poly and the Marble Maze is more about control and accuracy. You drag anywhere on the screen and tap to jump. There are three sections with twenty levels each.
Unlike other games like this which have platforms which hang in midair, there is no way to stop the ball from going over the edge. In the first few levels, before you have a firm grasp of the controls, the ball will just slide off the platform and into the abyss below. The soundtrack isn’t worth speaking of, which is okay because the silence allows you to focus on controlling the ball to reach the goal. It is more of a challenge than the average mobile game but worth playing precisely because of that.
