Marble Madness was a game released to the NES and Game Boy in 1989 and 1991 respectively. It involved navigating a marble through increasingly complex mazes within a specified time limit. Leftover minutes from the previous level were carried over. The game was originally an arcade game, and utilized a trackball. Because the NES game used the D-pad instead, the controls were notably harder. The NES version was released by Milton Bradley. A revamped version was released a decade later for the Game Boy Color.
