The Cubes Game

About The Cubes

The cubes brings all block gamers block busting fun. If that is not enough blocks for you in one sentence, then you probably need to get your block fix, and the cubes is a smart tactical game of block elimination that will have your head in a spin. In this guide, we will take a look at the cubes in a bit more detail.

The objective of the game is to use your mouse to point and shoot certain coloured blocks into the same coloured blocks positioned underneath. You need to make sure you eliminate all the blocks before your 'cannon' reaches a line, which symbolises the end of your time.

As you progress through the game, you are scored based on the amount of time and the number of blocks it takes for you to complete the level. When you complete the level, you move onto the next, however, if you do not complete the level then you have to go straight back to the beginning of the game. Every level seemingly increases in difficultly by adding more blocks.

If one of your blocks hits one of its same colour blocks below then it 'splits up' into three tiny blocks and bounces around the level, if any of these three small blocks hit a larger block of the same colour then that block divides into three smaller blocks and so on, until the level is over. Your goal is to eliminate all the large blocks; therefore, do not aim for the small blocks.

As far as game play goes, the cubes is one of the most addictive 'simple' games that you can find online. However, do not expect anything in the way of detailed graphics or added extras. The music is a retro gamers' delight, offering music you can only find on an early 90's arcade machine.

Hints and Tips

On a level where there are plenty of blocks, always aim for the centre. This way, you can eliminate the blocks surrounding that area as well.

If there are any blocks positioned on platforms, then aim for these first, as leaving them will leave you with problems at the end of the level.

There is no doubt, for sheer simplicity the cubes have to be one of the block games that you will play. If you often find yourself playing the Atari, rather than the Playstation 3, then this game will undoubtedly be a great game in your books.
