There are 16 boards at the moment. Maybe I should ad a mechanism that allows you to start at a later level once you've solved it before... As it is, maybe nobody has ever seen Board 14 (my favourite)...
Nice game and nice Graphics. I like it!

Is level 9 the one where you're surrouded? If so the trick is to bounce the ball off one so it hits another off at the same time :-)

This is really good but in real life if the marble was to hit another straight on wouldn't it bounce straight back the way it came? Just a suggestion. :)
danpostdanpost

2014/10/7

@Green_Code, actually, no. All the energy would be transferred to the forward marble and the one doing the hitting would presumably stop. In real life, the only difference would be due to the roll of the first marble. Compare them to, lets say, billiard balls. The one doing the hitting would roll slightly forward. The only ways the hitting marble would reverse is if it had back-spin on it during contact OR if the second marble had more mass than the first (provided no other objects are influencing the system).

@Mik, I downloaded your game, and sends one Error. Class Board, method getGoldMarble(), Line: List<Actor> marbles = getObjects (GoldMarble.class); //incompatible types Solution, chance Actor to GoldMarble. I obviously don't think you made a mistake, I suppose the problem are Greenfoot or Java updates.

@valdes - you are right. This was caused by a change in the Greenfoot API in a newer Greenfoot version. I have fixed the source code now - running the downloaded version should work again now.

@theonlybenjamin, You can Download all book scenarios from https://www.greenfoot.org/book/material/book-scenarios.zip and from that go inside the folder and follow; book-scenarios>chapter13>marbles. You will have other scenarios, too. if you want you can copy the marbles folder to another folder and delete the other scenarios(I think I will keep them to explore more about them).
