If you’re a fan of Match 3 games and puzzle games then you’ve got to check out Cubes 3D Revolution! This game is well put together, has unique 3D effects, colorful graphics, and fast paced addictive game-play.
Created by Simiotica, Cubes 3D Revolution serves up a 3D floating grid with 49 five sided cubes, each side with it’s own color. Your job is to turn over the color that creates a three cube (or more) color match. All matching cubes then dissolve, the grid adjusts, and new cubes arrive to fill in the gaps. Working against the clock you can add back time by uncovering matches. The deeper in the game you go, the trickier it is to uncover new matches, putting a premium on being efficient. If you don’t uncover new matches quickly you’re a goner.
In addition to the standard match 3 effects that we’ve come to expect from these types of games (dissolving cubes, score and time adjustment, points and awards, multi-match combos, etc.), Cubes 3D Revolution adds an interactive twist. Because of the 3D nature of the game, the colored cubes float above the deep space themed background. Instead of having to turn over every side of every cube to see what colors they consist of you can simply tilt your device to expose. Tilt up, down, left, right, and at any angle to get a sneak peak of the colors on each side of the cubes. When you find one that’s a perfect match just slide your finger over the cube in the direction that uncovers a match and the game takes care of the rest.
For those that are easily stumped, Cubes 3D Revolution offers a hint button that you can turn to when you’re in a pinch. It lights up a cube that’s a certain match so you can get yourself out of a jam. I certainly wouldn’t make a habit out of using it, but as you get deeper in the game it’s pretty much a certainty that you’ll need it from time-to-time.
Earlier I mentioned that Cubes 3D Revolution is well put together. So what did I mean by that. Well, every menu, the transition from page to page and screen to screen, the music, the colors and graphics, the effects and interaction within the game, all of it is just perfect. The second you open the app the layout, the options, the location of the buttons, they all just make sense. It’s clean, crisp, and couldn’t be better.
Overall I loved this app. There’s something about apps that are well built from cover to cover. I fully recommend this game to anyone that enjoys puzzle and matching games, brain teasers, etc. It’s 100% worth the download.
