So, I was unaware of this, but marble run is a popular hobby where you make a track and just let the little marble go through it. By the way I just described the whole game in one sentence, what do I type next?
Well, you can create and save the tracks you made, or load in other peoples tracks. What's bad about it? Everything is too simplistic, and it doesn't feel or look like a game at all. It looks like an engineering program to be honest, and you know how fun those are, right?
Every game based on player creativity I've yet seen is designed to respond to the needs of the designer/player. Marble Run is the opposite: every design is required to meet the limitations of the game. Measurements fail to sync, and the “variety” of provided parts is so sparse as to turn MR into essentially a puzzle game, to find the one “possibility” that the beginning and end pieces might end up miraculously connecting.
Basically steam reviews are saying that before it had a game breaking bug, one of the biggest they ever saw. And that even now there are a lot of bugs that the developer doesn't want to acknowledge. Therefore, I think he abandoned the game, because I actually don't know how this game can get up from this state.
The tracks and marbles look OK I guess, but the background is so dead... the only way the dev could have made it worse was if it was pitch black. Just no, atleast add some kind of a background.
It's really simple so I'm just gonna say - Meh.
FINAL SCORE: 3/10
Not into the game at all, but hey, maybe someones a fan of marble runs and wants to play a video game version of it, you're probably gonna be disappointed but, if you have some extra money just try it I guess.

A few more games inspired by metal that I think are worth mentioning (I'll try to keep this up to date with any suggestions)
Heavy Metal Machines - A nice combination of Micro Machines and Motor Rock with more metal!
Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.
Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods - Top-down twin-stick arcade shooter made by metalheads for metalheads.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - 90s style first-person shooter with a metal soundtrack and gothic style
BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre - You play as Satan's son in a twin-stick shooter with a metal soundtrack and nude demons.
Slain: Back From Hell - A heavy metal inspired arcade combat and puzzle platformer.
Valfaris - Indirect sequel to Slain, with tighter controls, prettier graphics and heavier soundtrack,
Butcher - Known by some as the 2D DOOM or by me as Soldat with a heavy metal skin.
Charlie Murder - Control a punk rock band in a beat 'em up RPG set in the zombie apocalypse!
Death Goat - If DOOM was a twin-stick shooter and allowed you to play an a wheelchair bound OAP.
Rock 'N' Roll Defense - A tower defense game that involves keeping unwanted idiots away from the rock show.
A Story of a Band - A quirky little band management simulation game.
Ubermosh Series - Twin-stick series that involve slicing bullets with swords in gun-filled cyberpunk mosh pits.

I mean I guess that's all the original Doom games ever were? Only with even less story!
But I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of the more modern Doom games, I think the fact they're so intense and demanding means you actually get mentally exhausted after just a few hours, I completed the original Doom just a few weeks ago and I didn't get that same fatigue. I pre-ordered Eternal and I still haven't completed it! But I tend to take my time with games and I'm perfectly okay with taking up to a few years to complete a game, so long as I get there eventually.
With Doom and Wolfenstein thriving with modern releases, I think I'd really like to see a new take on the Quake series.May 06, 2020
Not really a fan of the new Doom games ,they seem a bit repetitive ,go here ,shoot these ,go there ,shoot these though might just be me getting old.
I prefer story driven games these days.April 30, 2020
