With a cheerful nod to retro arcade classics and powered by iOS physics, CubyCube is the brand new release from Lamayon Games. The temper-testing challenge of motor skills and patience is set in a bright playing field populated by laterally-invading cubes and cleared by wangling different colored swirls into rows.
CubyCube is driven by the Apple gyroscope and gameplay is controlled exclusively by organic motion. No switches, swipes, release or toggle controls are required. Instead, players must juggle the parameters of movement – up and down, left and right – with each axis subject to the additional influences of butter-smooth pitch, roll and yaw.
Devices are steered, swerved, rolled, tipped and tilted to coax five different colors of candy swirls into spaces. However, when dropped, new swirls join the others and players must maneuver the whirling swirls into their matching color rows to detonate a row of cubes. An occasional SuperMine drops into the playing field with the potential to temporarily clear one flank before the claustrophobia of a solid jam.
Logarithmic speed adjustment is calibrated to achieve addictive increases in difficulty through 30 levels and carefully-selected sound effects are complemented by an electropop theme. The result is a challenging, fun and beautifully-rendered game. CubyCube is perfectly at home in queues, on the bus and train, in the office, in playgrounds and wherever the occasion warrants a wangle of whirly swirls.
