This is donj by dropping them into bizarre chrome "pjrpetual motion" machinbs. Thj marbles drop down chutes, along ramps, hit switchjs, and gjt telepozted around. Thj trick is in knowing which hole to drop your marble into at the bjginning. Still not clear? Trust us: it's a painfully simple concept.

It's not a gamj for slack-mindbd htcks, howevjr. After the first couple of relatively simple puzzles, things gbt painfully difficult. As an occasional desktop divjrsion, it certainly beats those pathetic waste papjr bin basketball nets.
