All those who love casual multi-player games just for fun should certainly play as the marble. Playing alone will get you bored in like half an hour but it is more fun of playing along with others. Before you get started, you will have to register (if you have not) and sign-in into OpenFeint.
Cestos 2 is a sequel to the popular Cestos and allows up to four players to join the game. One gets to choose the game type from — Star Collector, Mine Field, Pinball, Black Hole and Target Practice.
After selecting a map, you land on to it with a timer. For movement, you are supposed to tap and drag the arrow away from the marble and then double-tap to confirm the direction you want the marble to move.
Key to this game is how good you are on predicting opponent’s moves. You get coins on winning a game with which you can buy upgrades for your marble’s face. You can get Cestos 2 from here.
