The marble that will save the world and leave your sanity behind.

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.
