MicroCube bounces onto Android devices
It’s hip to be square
We thought a cube would be very fast on its feet, but that was before we laid eyes on the main character in MicroCube.
In this new endless runner released for Android devices you play as - surprise surprise - a hyperactive small cube who you must guide across a range of hazards and obstacles. Doing so is essential if it’s to avoid dissolving into a pile of slag (stop laughing at the back).
The controls to do this are deceptively simple, and involve the use of just a single finger. You must hold your digit on the screen to help the titular cube move to the right - but knowing when best to speed up and slow down is vital in racking up a high score.
To help you achieve a place at the top of the scoreboard there’s a range of power ups you can nab too, including shields which allow you to dance across spikes and laser guns that can help clear your path.
MicroCube isn’t just all about high score chasing either, with the range of coins, pink gems, and golden gems scattered randomly across stages helping you unlock a range of over forty playable characters. They’re all cubes, naturally.
The main attribute of the game is certainly its speed then, and it certainly takes a little while to adjust to the controls - but developer ZPLAY is hopeful it’s helped create a game that will keep you glued to your phone (but, you know, not literally).
