Hidden Marble Popper Gem
Pros: Gorgeous graphics, variety of games, varied difficulty levels
Cons: Need a good graphics card and processor speed to run game
Sky Kingdoms is one of those rare finds: little known, but an amazingly good game. The visuals are stunning and there is a variety of game play not seen in most other marble poppers, along with a good challenge level. In addition to the keep the balls from reaching the end usual gameplay, there are "chain reaction" and "snake" levels in which the object is to either score as many points as possible by making the largest setup, or remove all the balls on the "snake" which are actually parts of the dragons you must beat to advance to the next chapter. The dragons make it interesting by firing their own varied shots at you to avoid.
The sound effects are as good as the graphics, and you'll enjoy creating a good setup just to see the light show and hear the explosions. However, this is where the game's main problem enters in: If you don't have a good graphics card and processor speed to match, you're in for some pretty annoying issues (freezing or crashes). I wanted to keep this game, but my computer wasn't able to handle the graphics overload in certain places so I eventually had to give it up.

Very good hand-eye coordination, good speed, good challenge. Will eventually buy it.

It was nice to play a marble popper game other than luxor or zuma, and I enjoyed it.
A great challenge
The game was fun to start with, but eventually got boring. The game lacked the fun that Luxor and Zuma repetedly bring.
Storyline (if it can be called that) was just words on a scroll that I really could not be bothered reading.
Should've been more power-ups.
This game was ok, nowhere near as fun as Luxor, but still should provide entertainment.

Easy Game and Fun
This is an exciting game. It has many power-ups and explosive graphics that enhance the visual quality.
