Minigames

Rollers within other games.

  • 2007 - Wii Fit series.

  • 2017 - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has some motion controlled ones in a couple of shrines.

No-control

Ones where you don't directly control the marbles, but usually design the courses (runs) for them to travel through. Haven't tried any of these marble racing racing games, but like the idea.

  • 2016 - Collide-a-Ball - There's a sequel on the Nintendo Switch.
  • 2017 - Marble Run get
