The object of this game is to get colored marbles into the appropriate slots through a complicated collection of funnels, slides, swings, twirls, lifts, and gates. The puzzles start out fairly easy but get progressively harder as paths get more complicated and new contraptions get added (including a color changer and a cannon, where one marble launches a second marble). The first marble will often trip a switch that alters the path of the next marble. This is not a game of speed or hand-eye coordination; it requires that you plan ahead and try to logically determine the path your marble will take on its way through the maze.
