As I kid I was forever playing with marbles. I don't think I ever learned the real rules though and would instead use them to plug orifices, throw at people or set up boobie traps.
So, Mystic Marbles gave me a chance to enjoy the game in a safer way, and I was suprisingly pleased with the grown-up version. This is not an exact replication of the game (that would be boring) but rather some kind of Bubble Bobble/Arkanoid hybrid set within a mystical environment.
The original gameplay works very well and Mythic Marbles is great fun. The controls are simple and see you bounce off walls and smash bricks to proceed through the levels.
Each puzzle is different enough to prevent the game from becoming dull and the graphics are pretty good too. I found that the sound got a bit annoying after a while, but overall it beats getting a little ball stuck up your nose.
