Customer Reviews
Area 42 is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Graphics don't matter Yes @ 1st glance the graphics aren't exciting, but really it is the game play that matters & I didn't think about the graphics as I concentrated on the game. This game reminds me of a certain bird game, the pearl games & tennis in the face. It is a matter of timing & aiming to miss obstacles etc, which I enjoyed until Lvl 8 - had quite a few attempts before success. It is also a given no. of moves game. There is no storyline (not necessary) this is purely a see how well you can do game, with no instructions, but you can go back & choose lvls you have played - but I haven't figured out why the better score doesn't always register on the lvls board I would get this just because it is a nice change from usual M3s, & poppers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The game has a lot to offer! I read all the reviews and decided to buy it anyway. It is pretty good! I love that you have to position your ball correctly with a special arc or it doesn't work. If you don't like geometry or physics - you will hate this game. OK - the graphics are not getting into the history books but I like that! I can concentrate on the game, the angles, the balls coming down and not worry about anything fancy - just the game!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from There is a challenge This game is very similar to K3Y and Jars of Marbles. Marble dropping fun to match 3 or more is right up my alley. The graphics make this game appear as if this is designed for kids, and that's okay with me. Not too hard, not too easy. I actually enjoyed playing this. I might even buy it when I'm done with the demo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not much going for this one Im not sure what the idea of the graphics style is i remember the 8 bit games graphics some being a lot better than these, which are flat basic and add nothing to the game, the same is true of the sound. i found the game play slow and clunky specially in relation to firing i cant really comment on the level of challenge i only lasted 20 mins before i gave up totally board

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT'S SIMILAR TO K3Y BUT BORING I usually love physics based games, but this game wasn't all that fun. I found it amusing that I had to choose my graphics setting at the start, because the graphics are pretty basic, just look at the pictures shown above. The marbles are just flat colored circles with no depth, and the colors are just as flat. To play this game, you need to click on the shooter marble and hold the mouse button down, drag the marble down, aim using the dotted line as a guide, and let go of the mouse button to shoot. The goal is to hit at least 2 other similar colored balls to remove them. One feature I didn't like with this game, is that when marbles fall when you hit them and bump into alike colors, those marbles don't count and don't get removed until they are hit by the shooter marble. They added to the challenge by adding moving platforms, gates and even scoops that gently scoop up a pile of the so called marbles and dump them back out. Perhaps this game would have appealed to me more if the colors were more vibrant, but for whatever reason, I just couldn't get into this game.
