|This article is about a Marble Blast gameplay mechanic.|
Fast Start: Time your first jump so that you land right after the announcer says "Go", then hold in the space bar again for a second fast jump. You will be going much faster than usual.
Semi-Fast Start: Same as the "Fast Start", only don't hold down the jump button for a second jump. This move is used for some levels that need a little extra speed boost to save time, but too much would send you off the level or too far off course.
Jumping when possible: Jumping whenever you can will make the marble go faster on each jump.
Going diagonally: You move significantly faster if you jump diagonally instead of straight. Just rotate the camera so that when you jump diagonally you will head in the right direction.
