Roll around as a ball with a loose tongue you use as a swing in Crumble, now with a much updated demo available to try.

A game I tried out and did a little video for back in April, it's actually really good. I can't help but laugh at the goofy little face on the blue ball you control as their tongue flaps around.

Talking about what's new the developer said it has "new contents, new levels, improved mechanics and visuals!". Seems like a lot of work went into it too, it looks and feels a lot better than the first demo. There's a little intro now and the second level makes great use of the tongue swinging system and it's quite a challenge.

Crumble has a surprising challenge to it! Being a round shape rather than a person certainly adds a new dynamic to 3D platforming with a feel you don't get as a person jumping around. It's silly but the entertaining kind of weird that I like to see. The faces your ball pulls when swinging around gave me a good laugh.

True to the name, Crumble, the world isn't exactly stable. One level has cannons firing at you as you attempt to escape, with the cannon balls smashing into the platforms (and sometimes you) which makes it a bit of a rush to get through.

My favourite part though? It has to be the third level, where you control an aeroplane by rolling around on it to move. Such a brilliant idea! Damn tricky too.

There's no current release date set for the full version. It will of course be a much bigger game at release though with a full campaign mode, a multiplayer part mode for up to 4 local players, a skin unlock system, online leaderboard and more. I'm looking forward to trying it after thoroughly enjoying what the demo has to offer.

You can try the demo it's up on, Game Jolt and Steam.

Wishlisted and downloading the demo even as I write this. I see "marble" 3D platformers all the time on Steam, but nothing that looks like this! :)
