Rollers

AKA: Ballers

Games where you are a sphere and you roll about.

Examples

(Bunch of new ones popping up. Probably due to beginner tutorials for doing ball-rolling stuff with Unity and Unreal.)

FIXME get dates (open-source):

Minigames

Rollers within other games.

  • 2007 - Wii Fit series.
  • 2011 - uDraw Studio: Instant Artist has two roller minigames that use the tilt function of the Wii. One where you navigate a maze, and one where you roll a ball to make drawings.
  • 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
  • 2018 - Marbles on Steam get
  • 2021 - Marble World get
