Balance

by RookieBi, tomthebighead, and bloccoPNG.

In Balance, you must carefully guide your marble through a series of precise and difficult 3D platform challenges. It’s inspired by the 2004 shareware game “Ballance” – which I haven’t played, but what a great title that is!

Balance is unfinished, or possibly abandoned? Whatever the case, in its current state, there are no checkpoints, and you need to manually select the stage you want to play by pressing 9. Which actually, I really like? On the one hand, I like the freedom of just being able to hop around and see everything without any restrictions, and on the other, I like that it implies that the one true way to play is to start from the very start, every time, and complete the entire course in one go. It works whether you’re feeling hardcore or casual!

When I first tried this, I bounced off it a bit – but it really came to life when I tried it out with a group of four on our last games morning. Maybe the coolest thing about Roblox games is the way that they make all games multiplayer by default – and therefore suggest the possibility that, you know, maybe all games could be multiplayer?
