Remember Devil Dice? We do, and it’s a game that’s ripe for a spiritual successor. Many a day was spent on the PS1 trying to get a die to flip just so. Then there was Intelligent Cube, again on the PS1, with its rows of cubes looking to stomp you down. Man, the PS1 was absolutely the home for games with cubes in. Cube Raiders is out now on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC via Steam.
Looking to bring the cube back is Cube Raiders, and it’s definitely got a touch of the Devil Dice. You play Rose and/or Kirk, two little leprechaun-like characters, as you hope to roll cubes and dice over to form lines with your MagnetoGloves, match numbers, or place them in slots marked on the ground.
There are four different game modes on offer in Cube Raiders, and up to two players can join the block-knocking. It seems there are 99 levels for solo players to complete, and 59 for cooperative play, so there’s no shortage of brain-twisters.
Trailers don’t fill us with stacks of optimism, but you never know. It all seems a tad familiar, for anyone who’s come across a similar puzzle in umpteen platformers or adventure games, while the art style is twee for our tastes. Perhaps it’s got some tricks up its sleeves, but developer Void Games haven’t got anything else under their belts to quell our skepticism.
- Face the dangers and surprises in each temple and solve more than 99 puzzles for just one player.
- Have fun together and play a joint adventure with more than 59 puzzles created for two players.
- Get the highest score in “Endless” mode before time runs out or the entire floor gets filled with dice!
- Put companionship aside and show who the best Cube Raider is in the “Duel” mode.
Cube Raiders is rolling the dice now on Xbox One and will cost you £10.74. It’s also out on PS4, Switch and PC via Steam.
