As per the app description suggested, Cuboid: 3D Puzzle Game Free got me addicted ‘right from the start’. It’s hard to say no to a challenging puzzle game whereby you want to clear the current stage before putting your device down but the game gets so addictive that you insist on moving on to the next level. This ‘one more level’ mentality got me glued to the couch for slightly over an hour without me even realizing it.
Cuboid: 3D Puzzle Game Free involves players rolling a cuboid around fixed dimensional path tiles with certain tiles setting off booby traps like teleportation tiles that can and should be used to the player’s advantage. While it sounds simple, later stages in the game prove otherwise.
The gameplay concept of Cuboid… is not what I would call unique, given that similar games have surfaced in past years. However, what sets the game apart would be the stunning graphics utilized by the app. The maps are beautifully rendered in 3D with grand backgrounds and fanciful effects accompanying the flipping of the cuboid. The game is also graced by Egyptian-themed music which I personally found rather eerie at the start, but it did help to calm my nerves a tad bit in the frustrating levels later on in the game.
A free app, Cuboid: 3D Puzzle Game Free is definitely one game that you cannot miss out on. As the puzzles get increasingly difficult, hints are available throughout to help in making progress. However, these hints are only available through in-app purchases, hence making the clearing of each stage be it on your own or with help very satisfying indeed.
Would I Buy Again:Yes.
Learning Curve:Simple, but levels get increasingly tricky.
Who Is It For:Casual gamers and puzzle fans.
What I Like:The stunning graphics and gameplay mechanisms.
What I Don't Like:Levels do get repetitive after a while.
Final Statement:Who said rolling blocks around was boring?
