Summary: I was really surprised with this game. Interesting puzzler where you have to move your ball threw the different levels with a beam of light [ that can be expanded or shrunk to fit you needs]. The light will draw the ball and it will follow you threw the levels. You have to change your ball from metal to wood to water,g;ass and more. Graphics are awesome. You will be able to move your beam of light and ball using analog stick or the directional arrows.

Summary: Traveling through a fantastical world to save the kingdom on the brink of ruin. The fate of the world rests on one boy. Better get that marble rolling. Huh? Fading Shadows is more than Marble Madness with a story born from watching too many 80's fantasy flicks. The story is there as an excuse for the fantasy themed graphical environments you will be rolling through on your way to save the world.
Summary: I have not finished the game completely but I have solved 23 puzzles. So far none have had me in a bind. Most of the difficulty comes from controlling the ball over narrow paths or across rocks that sink into lava as you try to jump it onto the next small platform. The game plays out quite casual. Everything is straight forward so far and there is not time limit. The music sets the chilled tone really well and sometimes so well I forget it's there.
Excerpt: Fantastic. I have never played a game as unique and intriguing as this before! The game has groundbreaking gameplay and gontrols that took all of about 2 minutes to get used to and I found I was quite pleased with myself when I figured out all the ways I could manipulate this little orb. This is another PSP game where the cover does not represent the game or gameplay at all.
Pros: Brand new concept, great gameplay and challenging
