Marble mazes

Several red and black marbles sit on a flat tray, a grey square indicate a hole in the tray. If a marble rolls onto or over the hole it drops through and disappears. Use the cursor keys to tilt the tray and start the marbles rolling, the marbles roll in a straight line until they come to rest, you can then roll again.

Your challenge is to drop all the red marbles, it does not matter how many black marbles you lose in the process.

In 2004 James Hutton of Melbourne, Australia produced a version of Marble Mazes for the Nokia phone which is still available here for download. It was originally designed to run a Series 60 phone (e.g. N-Gage, 3620, 3650, 6600, 6620, 7610, 7650, Nokia 6260, Siemens SX-1, Sendo X, Panasonic X700). In the unlikely event you still have a compatible phone you can install the 'sis' file using normal procedure as described in the literature that came with the phone. When the installer asks whether to install it to the phone memory or a memory card, you must choose the phone memory, or it won't work. See Options-About for license information.
