I remember playing this game not long after the 360 launched and it being a real treasure. When I heard that Garage Games lost the IP rights and had to have the game removed from XBLA, I was heart broken because the game wasn't purchased on my current account so that meant I could never play it again.
Well apparently, some kind souls have ported it over to PC, and got damn it holds up amazingly.
It still looks great, it plays incredibly well, and it's still really challenging in later levels.
The game shines at 1080p with 60fps. I urge everyone to give it a play if you haven't already.
Edit: Someone on Reddit informed me about Marble Blast Platinum, a fan conversion of Marble Blast Gold that I figured some might be interested in.

It's a fan-made total conversion mod for the classic Marble Blast Gold. MBG was the original game which came out on PC in 2003, and was the precursor to the Xbox version, Marble Blast Ultra.
Marble Blast Platinum has beautiful HD graphics, hundreds of levels (all of them fan-made) ranging from easy to insanely difficult, some pretty awesome music, and online high-scores / leaderboards for every map. This mod has been out for a few years now, and a lot of people put a ton of hard work into it.
Marble Blast Platinum requires Marble Blast Gold to be installed. After you have it installed, you can download the Platinum mod and have a bunch of fun.
The mod is still currently supported, with new updates and maps coming out all the time. It's a shame more people don't know about this. It's a must-have for any Marble Blast fan.
