MarbleX (Version 3)
for macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)


This game is extremely addictive.

You have been warned.

MarbleX is an all new implementation of one of the most popular NeXTSTEP arcade games. Totally redesigned with a bright new Aqua interface, and sporting all new graphics and new game-play levels, MarbleX is ready to entertain millions of new macOS fans.

One volunteer illumineX beta tester, said, "Every time I turn around, my MacBook is missing. When I find it, sure enough, my wife or my grandkids are playing MarbleX!"

MarbleX follows in the footsteps of BabelBloX, making extensive use of the modern OS features found in macOS. The MarbleX look and feel reflects the design intent of the Aqua interface, without copying it verbatim. This gives the game a nice flavor on macOS. It fits in well, and yet it's fresh and original.

MarbleX provides full Mac Help, including strategy tips and a description of the physics of the game, an animated dock icon, and both Windowed & Full Screen display modes. MarbleX also features a "Chrome" theme for the game skin.

Pricing and Availability

The illumineX Infinity GamePaX series (including BabelBloX, HextriX, HoppiX, MarbleX, MnemoniX, RoX, and RuniX) is moving to macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and the Mac App Store this year.

Each game will be available for a low price of $4.99 which is 1/2 the original price of each game.

The Mac App Store doesn't allow us to identify our customers, so we are not able to offer upgrade pricing for previous iX Connect customers. Since the GamePaX has only been available as a free download since about 2009, we hope you'll consider this to be a reasonable upgrade fee (about 50 cents a year!)
