After Dark Screensaver -- Marbles

Does anyone know where I can purchase the collection of screen savers known as "After Dark"?

Can anyone familiar with the program reference me to a free saver that most aproximates the saver known "Marbles" ? ((Marbles would drop from the top of the screen and hit various bumpers before finally resting at the bottom of the screen.

These have not been produced for several years. Before buying, make sure they will work with Win XP. Ones I have seen (you can google 'After Dark', also) specify that they work only with Win95 and 98 (and Mackintosh).

Sadly, that 10th Anniversary version is six years old. It will not work on anything newer than Windows 98.

This might be the deciding factor to push you into buying a Mac - Infinisys has produced After Dark X, which as the name suggests, works on OS X.

Don't see any marbles in that one.
