We've been covering Northern Bytes' Suzy Cube for quite literally years now and for good reason: The game in its current in-development state is the best 3D platformer we've played on iOS. While there's certainly no shortage of games with 3D platforming mechanics on the App Store, I've typically found them to be unplayably clunky, both in how you control your character as well as how you control the camera. That's not the case with Suzy Cube, at all, to an extent that's just sort of crazy. Take a look at the trailer:

The amount of care that's been taken in building the levels, perfecting the control, and making sure the camera is never in a place that it gets in your way has been exhaustively detailed in developer blogs, and is really worth a look if you're at all into the nitty gritty of what makes a 3D platformer work on touch devices. We've also got a thread in our forums that has been cookin' since 2015 that is packed with similar insights.

We're super excited for Suzy Cube, but since it's just one developer working on the whole thing, we're not expecting it anytime soon. But, ya'know, that's alright. The constant drip feed of updates at the two links above are good enough for now!

    It looks good but the levels are clearly clones of Mario 3D land... that's ok though I guess

      We're at a point where everything rip off everything
      Nice new games from fresh creativity become rarer and rarer

      There's a difference between influence and cloning.

      • Mrwubbs

        I know the difference, and I meant clones. It's like cut and paste from what I see here. Again, no biggie, but it's the truth.

    Look so nice!
    For all family. If u love puzzles and sick platforming
    Really polished game.

    I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't stepped in yet. Game seems very charming, from the vid tho, their only seems to be a couple of unique elements not related to the big N & M.

      So it's not just me that sees this...
