general description

Marble Madness, a later, classic Atari release takes a very simply concept and transforms into a great game. The objective is to guide your marble (using a track-ball) through different courses that are scattered with obstacles such as holes, acid, ice patches, evil marbles and such. The courses are drawn in a 3-D perspective and quite elaborate considering the age of the game (it was released in 1984). The game also allows two-player simultaneous competition.

about this version

The game was part of Atari’s “System One” series of games and appeared in a generic cabinet with blue and silver Atari artwork. The System One system allows one to relatively change the entire game by switching a big cartridge type game board, the control panel and the marquee. Other System One games include Indiana Jones, Road Runner, Peter Packrat and Road Blasters. A sequel for the Marble Madness was developed but never released.

*NOTE: Dimensional Weight (also know as "Dim Weight") is an industry standard formula used by shipping companies. The calculation is used to determine how much space a package will take up. Most shipping rates are calculated based on Dim Weight or actual weight, whichever is greater. The formula for Dim Weight is (L" x W" x D")/194. The examples shown here show the actual dimensional weight for the game, and then given an estimated shipping dimensional weight assuming that 5" of packing material is needed in each dimension. Your actual results may vary.
