I'm your generic college kid who spends a bit too much time enjoying technology (and food. Lots of food). I got into one of those really long google sessions that eventually took me to this site and decided I should make an account.
I've played Marble Blast games since my earlier childhood, starting with Gold. I played around some with Platinum and Online, eventually moving to Ultra when I picked up an Xbox 360.
I saw that Platinum got some updates since last I played it (probably 2013), and since I was cleaning around some stuff at home to get ready for college, I dug up my old copy of Gold, too (which consists of a CD with an installer on it, with the name and code to unlock the game written on a piece of masking tape on the case).
Awkward introduction aside, I hope to enjoy the community here.
Hoo boy, Platinum indeed got some big updates. That, my friend, is called PlatinumQuest (PQ if you're lazy.) which is almost certainly the biggest update for a Marble Blast game.
Welcome to the community! It's always great to see a new face, and the add-on of having past experiences is even better! Mind you that the leaderboards has a big fat total of 420 (Hey, look at that! Memes!) official levels spread out through Marble Blast Gold, Platinum, Ultra, and PlatinumQuest. Along with that, there are 244 custom levels and soon there will be another 50 added to the fun. That's 714 levels in total, so hopefully you won't be bored of singleplayer anytime soon! I'm writing this at 2:00 in the morning so the math is probably wrong.
Make sure to check out multiplayer when you have the chance. There are a number of different gamemodes (Gem Hunt, Mega Marble Wars, Co-op, and a couple others) and they're all very different from singleplayer. Come give me a poke online and I'd love to show you around if you'd like!
There is a Discord server for the community which surprisingly is where most of the talk is, so joining the server is basically a must. (Don't worry, it's very possible to avoid the u and joj spam.)
And finally you have the fotums. There's more spam here including tournament discussion and unnecessarily long replies to introduction posts, as well as a bunch of others like games, videos, and custom levels.
That's all I have to say for now. Again, welcome to the community. It's lovely to see a new face.
See you online!
I'm more than proud to say that I was the first player, staff or non-staff, to get all 138 Awesome Times in PlatinumQuest.
