I've had a thing for speedrunning games similar to Marble Blast for a while now but unfortunately I've never found anything that has really stuck with me.

Over the past year or so, I've been looking around at what I could try out. I haven't found a lot of different games in the past that I'd like to keep playing for a while because of a couple reasons. One of these reasons is that it seems a little tricky to make fun and interesting games, or maybe just levels, to play in terms of seeing how fast you can go through the entire thing.

One of the games I just recently found through an advertisement on Facebook is Gyrosphere Trials which is surprisingly (to me) for mobile devices. A few minutes ago, I just uploaded a video that is a Gyrosphere Trials version of any old Marble Blast video that you'll see on my channel, or any other channel for that matter. I went through several levels as fast as I could. Here is my wonderful video.

I've also found two other games which I may or may not start playing again. One is Polyball which I found through Death Pony's channel, and the other one is decently well known throughout the modern community which goes by the name of Geoid. I stopped playing Polyball because I couldn't resist going for the top time on the leaderboards for the very first level, and I stopped playing Geoid because the huge change in the physics was hard to deal with and I just wanted to keep playing Marble Blast.

So at this point in time, I am currently in a state where I want to apply my search and destroy skills to speedrunning games similar to Marble Blast. Any suggestions?

First player ever to get all of the Awesome Times.

The only weird ones I can think of are Geoid (which you've mentioned), and (might not be your style), "Neverball".
I'll do more research and edit this post as I find new options.

If you don't mind complete garbage, look up Marble Void on steam.

Some good ones I know are, Marble Madness (Online Emulator), Rolling Madness (Marble Madness remade in 3D), and Marble Park (IOS). Idk if these are good for speedrunning, but they are fun :)

For reference there was also Marble Arcadia which never got past the demo (however based on dev updates there seemed to be complete game pretty much finished. Closest to MB physics ive seen (without bounce bug).

Some guy that does DTS shapes and levels.

Neverball is fun but WAY too hard to play! The gameplay mastering is absolute pain!

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

Hamsterball is pretty fun too. The downside is that it doesn't have many levels and you might get bored of it fast.

im gonna agree that hamsterball is awesome.

There's an ancient game named Switchball which was fun, idk if you can even get it anymore.

and shamelessly advertise this which is DEFINITELY a speedrunning game, i swear... tagpro.koalabeast.com/

I have had Switchball's CD-ROM for a very long time. In fact, I still sometimes play it on my Windows 10 Computer! It took me forever to figure out how to get it to work. Thing is, the game only recognizes a version of Ageia PhysX. So you have to uninstall any other version you may have on your PC and install the one that comes on the disc. I really like Switchball, and it looks beautiful on max graphics!
