Big changes coming to Oh Marbles in 2012
There are some major changes in the works for Oh Marbles! This web site and the game are now published by Cider Press Media, LLC. We are the same people with a different business name. The original release of Oh Marbles! has been removed from the Apple Store. It will be re-released soon, with significant changes. Those who purchased the original game will not be able to upgrade to future versions. It will be necessary to delete it and install the Cider Press Media version of Oh Marbles. There is some consolation in this. The next version of Oh Marbles will include the features that people have requested in the first game. If anyone is concerned about this, feel free to contact us.
Oh Marbles is a classic marbles game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
As in the classic game, Oh Marbles presents the best experiences of playing marbles – wining, losing, collecting, trading and pondering the endless variety of marble designs. Children everywhere have gathered to play marbles in school yards, homes, or any other place where kids wander. Every marble player had marbles in different, fascinating designs. Oh Marbles is designed to present that same experience.
