Best ball/object-rolling/moving physics game

Super Monkeyball, Gamecube surely. Closely followed by Spindizzy on the Amstrad CPC 464.
Don't give me any of this Marble Madness business ;)

I've always been a bit partial to Kula World.

I don't think I ever played Kula World, it was always fairly uncommon and when it came in at the Gamestation I worked at at the time it used to sell pretty much straight away.

"Super Monkey Ball on the GameCube, surely", but Kororinpa and Marbles! Balance Challenge on the Wii are massively underrated and well worth a look.

NightSky. It's an indie game on steam and i highly suggest you try it.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Got to agree Kula World is a seriously good game. I have it running on my phone under FPSE and it plays like a peach

The Mercury games deserve a mention, surely? And Spinout on the PSP's a nice little title too.

Can I count Pong on the PS1? That game is brilliant! If not? I stand by my 'none' :(

Kula World was one of the first and best PS1 games I ever played. still love it to this day.

Also, Wetrix is one of my favourites.
