Reception to Marble Blast Elite’s demo has been average. Many liked the scenery and textures, as well as the new gameplay elements. Levels received mixed reactions, as people liked some of their challenges but were overall too hard for the categories they were placed; most people did not like the white trim texture.
Marble Blast Elite was going to release a newer demo build that addressed most of the community issues, but this did not occur. Since then the mod underwent through many changes to its structure, including changing many levels and the way it was going to be presented, but no word had been heard since.
