    Yeah I really like it.
    And I don't much really like puzzlers usually.
    The graphics are a bit strange, but its really addictive.
    It is free

    Yeah, but free usually equates to trash. No matter how fancy a title might be *ahem* cube...

    And with that, a mere member graduates into the fantastic realm of SENIOR MEMBER!
    I'm not gonna do a whole thread on this, cos it's self-indulgent (I'm looking at you Rocketman919).
    But I just thought sometimes these things can go unnoticed, unrewarded.
    Thanks guys, its been a pleasure

    Welcome to the big leagues kid. "Elton Jhon's early 70s song" made a big fuzz about nothing. Speaking of post counts, I'm OVER 400!!! I need a life...

    Nice, might get it.

    How do you move the character though?
    Swipes anywhere on-screen? (Like in Loopy Laboratory.)
    Or taps relative to his current position? (Like in Mouse House.)

    Yeah, definitely get this game. It's addicting and I really like it. The only problem is that it only has 75 levels (I think) and people were complaining it was too short to be worth $5. Now that it's free, you should take this opportunity to get it :)

    PS each level usually takes me 2-15 minutes so it isn't terribly short.

    Thanks for the answer. I'm not a great fan of this method though... :(

    I agree. When the character is one tile away from the right side of the screen, and you want him to move to the far right, you have only very little space to tap. I'd also prefer swiping. :)

    I agree that swipe controls would make the game much more playable.

    This game's ok. I like it, but wouldn't pay 5 dollars for it. Its mostly an opinion. The concept is solid, so the people really don't matter much. Just download it now, and try it. Its less than 10 megs, so you can just delete it later.

    you people make me lol. How do you even remember that, that was weeks ago. And to everydaynormalguy you need to give things a chance. I doubt you could have made something as awesome as cube. It wasn't meant to be a game, just a tech demo to show the capability. Remember, that is a pc game being played on a god damn MOBILE PHONE. Thats gotta be some kind of achievement. That is all, I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, you just have to lighten up and not be so critical.

    Can someone give me a link to the self-indulgent post by Rocketman. I'd love to read it, but can't find it. :p
     
  19. Downloaded it for free and will give it a spin once new control scheme gets implemented.

    Well said, young grasshopper. Still, why the hell was Cube under GAMES then? It should've been on a category titled: "Half-Assed PC To iPhone Port That Displays What The iPhone Can Kind Of Do But It's Not Really There Yet" Game...
