This is, far and away, the worst version of Marble Madness. Maddening (pun intended) that the "Finish the game is less than X deaths" achievements exist on this one which has, by a wide margin, the worst music and the fudgiest controls. It also runs super slowly for some odd reason. Sega sure does what Nintendon't: make me hate myself when playing Marble Madness...

A few tips for anyone struggling:

1. Hold (I guess it's the A) button basically at all times. This functions as a turbo but also a traction-increasing quick turn. Oddly, it's different from (I believe) C in the sense that C does turbo but with no traction increase
2. Check out speed runs for reliable techniques for dealing with certain areas of the game.
3. Hope for great luck when being launched at the black marble by the catapult. Bad luck means you lose one of your three precious lives right there!

Finishing this game on Hard is a feat unto itself. Having to beat the game with 3 breaks or less is absurd. My respects to anybody that has the badge for this set.

Holy, I did it!

I basically had to speedrun the game to beat it in HARD mode, do not hesitate to go see some speedruns for yourself on Youtube, that will help you a lot!

As for the 3 lives, I spent the whole week training and training and training...I could beat the first 3 levels without any death rather easily but shit got real in level 4. Level 5 is a breeze, and then...level 6. Laggy on Genesis and very punishing, honestly I just got lucky at that point.

Good luck!

Please somebody add the Japanese Tengen version to this site. It could even be separated from this version like Dynamite Heady.
