Cubicity 

 

In the year of our Lord 2013 has been the year of the indie games. Independent games have been around for years. In fact indie developers are who started the entire video game industry. Corporations and business wrapped themselves around the industry to make billions of dollars.

The massive dollar signs is why so many people are here in the video game industry. It is why there is so much media attention. Someone is wanting you to make them the next millionaire. There are also people who want to make the kinds of games they want to play. They want interesting experiences out in the marketplace.

This is where Cubicity enters stage right. A less than intelligent bloke sees signs telling him to avoid a manhole. Does he listen? Is he obedient? Does he exhibit respect? The answer to all those questions is sadly no. So he winds up stuck underground. He must move a block into a bin to make it through the levels.

How do you move the block to the bin? With magnetics. Your character is not Magneto, but he is close enough. He can draw blocks to himself, move over and deposit them. Be wary of weight though. The more blocks you carry the lower your guy is to the ground. Which is needed to progress through certain levels.

Cubicity is a puzzling game in some areas. Some family members will get stuck in levels and need assistance. That is if you can figure out how to get past it. There are enough levels to warrant the price of admission. The music and special effects are aesthetically pleasing to the ear drums. The graphics are a bit on the snarky side.

Cubicity has a bit of attitude in it. From the main character to the evil scientist. Why we needed an evil scientist is beyond me. Expect Cubicity to stretch you mind in terms of solving the puzzles. The concept of moving object A to location B sounds simple until you see what is in your way.
