Graham Reid's Hecticube started out quite differently to what he's presenting to us today.

It was originally made to celebrate the 2014 World Cup. Reid's idea was that "it would be cool to make an advanced version of Pong with a World Cup theme to commemorate it."

The result was called "World Cuppong" and can still be played in your browser. In it, you can move your player, which is the paddle, around freely in your half of the pitch. Your aim is to score by bouncing a ball into your opponent's goal, of course.

As the excitement around the World Cup died down, Reid decided to rework his little game with a view to bring a competitive experience to mobile.

Hence we have Hecticube. Now, each player shoots projectiles from their end of their pitch towards their opponent's goal.

Typically, there are bullets flying everywhere as both players try to manipulate the ball from a distance.

As well as the shooting, the other big change is that the goal is a solid platform rather than a hole. It has to be hit with the ball several times to eliminate it, shrinking with every hit.

Hecticube will support single player with an AI opponent as well as single-screen multiplayer. It will also have a number of visual themes to choose from.

It will be coming to iOS and Android soon. It'll be a single price and will contain no IAPs. You can find out more about Hecticube on its website.
