‘Cube Runner’: A Free Download From Andy Qua

The iTunes App Store just landed and there are lots of games out there.  I doubt anyone has had a chance to experience them all–we here at Touch Arcade surely haven’t.  It’s been a rather busy day.

That said, in my admittedly limited expierience of the full game catalog, here at the close of the iPhone 3G / iPhone 2.0 launch day, I must point to Cube Runner [App Store] as the best value title I’ve yet encountered on the App Store.  It’s free.  And it’s fun.

The author Andy Qua describes Cube Runner:

Cube Runner is a game for the iPhone and iPod Touch where the aim is to fly your ship across a terrain littered with Cubes. No-one knows how the cubes got there but you need to get through them.

Key features:

  • Fast 3D graphics
  • Intuitive controls – use the built-in accelerometer to fly across the terrain.
  • Downloadable Layout Packs – Create your own layouts and share them.

As the YouTube video illustrates, the graphics are simple.  The gameplay is moreso.  But it’s amazing fun.  Don’t miss it.
