Marble Madness, Arcade

Atari’s 1984 arcade hit was a very early proponent of isometric (meaning: “equal measure”) graphics, with a viewpoint that takes an overhead, three-quarter perspective of the game play area, and as a result was a huge influence on many games that followed it.

Marble Madness still stands up extremely well today, being very playable and beautifully constructed.
