The Platinum Team is proud to announce the release of PlatinumQuest, the long awaited modification to Marble Blast! This new mod takes over Marble Blast Platinum in both name and title as the new official mod of MarbleBlast.com.
Through almost 8 years of development, PlatinumQuest has seen two separate development teams as it slowly came to fruition. This highly anticipated update contains more than 130 new and exciting levels, as well as dozens of new features. PlatinumQuest is the largest addition to the Marble Blast genre and we're sure you'll appreciate the work that went into it.
As you may have guessed by the name of this update, PlatinumQuest requires players to beat levels and special challenges in order to progress further through the game, as well as unlock unique Bonus levels. While PlatinumQuest aims to be easier than its predecessor, there are still mind-boggling challenges that will stump even the experts!
Included in this update is a massive upgrade to the base engine of the game, allowing players to select graphical enhancements including marble reflection, texture quality, animated backgrounds and more! Additionally, we've added improved joystick support for Xbox controllers which even work for several of the game menus. Users who enjoy making levels will find several major enhancements to the Level Editor, as well as several cosmetic changes. All levels also have a neat camera preview system, allowing you to showcase the level itself. The level select screen has been greatly modified and now shows many levels at once, giving you an easy way to find and select the level you want to play.
PlatinumQuest adds several major gameplay features, including new Powerups, a Hint system (available to Custom levels as well), general tips and trivia, as well as a new level progression system. This system requires players to beat previous levels (for the main game levels) as well as more specific challenges that unlock Bonus levels. There is much, much more in PlatinumQuest than can be covered here, so be sure to play and explore it thoroughly!
However, with all of these exciting new features, our minimum system requirements have changed, and now require:
- Windows 7 or later / macOS 10.7 or later
- DirectX 10 hardware:
- GeForce 8000 series or higher
- AMD Radeon 2000 series or higher
- Intel HD 3000 or higher
- Note that you may have to run on lower graphical settings depending on your hardware.
- 2GB of free disk space
- Internet connection is required for online play
- Mac users need to install an Xbox controller driver for Xbox controller support
We hope you enjoy PlatinumQuest as much as we have working on it!
- The Platinum Team

Hey guys! I'm new to PQ and I want to know how to get the nest egg on Bag of Secrets. It seems like an out-of-place level and there are some gems that seem impossible to get. My other goal was to get all the gems. Any help?
