I love puzzle games. What can I say, I am a puzzle geek!
This game has two modes; the story mode and the arcade mode. The story mode begins as a little girl and her dog discover this strange cube in the sky. She is fascinated by its strange movements and soon she skips off to find her brother. He joins her and watches in amazement but with some trepidation. He thinks it may be dangerous.
Soon they fetch a policeman. He is baffled but of course cautious of any possible danger. Since he can’t make any sense of this strange cube, he calls in a scientist. Together they continue to watch the drama play out in the sky.
The story is cute and playful and the artwork for the scenes is outstanding. The music and sound effects are very appropriate and add an ethereal quality to the game play.
You can control the game play with your mouse or you keyboard. I chose to use the keyboard because I could make more precise moves and I didn’t have to worry about the mouse cursor catching in the right spot.
This particular type of visual puzzle does not come easy for me, so I am using lots of trial and error to solve the puzzles. I am enjoying the challenge and since the puzzles are hard for me I particularly relish my small victories. I even posted a full walkthrough of the story mode on youtube.
I think I like the story mode best because I can take as long as I want to ponder the puzzle. For me it is a little more relaxing than the arcade mode. They modes are very different so you should try both.
I wish the game had more levels in the story mode. One hundred levels would have been more to my liking. Perhaps if this one does well they will create a larger game. I hope so!
