Cubis 2 For iPod Reviewed

Applelinks has released a new iPod game review, this time examining Cubis 2. The puzzle game tasks players with creating chains of three or more cubes of the same color to score points. Applelinks gave Cubis 2 a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

To keep things even more interesting, Cubis 2 contains four slightly different play variations. Arcade Mode is pretty much what I described above, in which you have to clear a certain percentage of blocks from the screen. Puzzle Mode gives you specific tasks, such as clearing all of the star cubes within a certain amount of time. Then, there are Morph Modes of both Arcade and Puzzle Mode which add Ghost Cubes that float around and mess up your strategies, making the game more complex.

Depending upon what type of gamer you are, that could be a problem with Cubis 2. It's more difficult than other games of this sort. The multi-layered action makes for a steeper learning curve than you'd expect, and it'll be a while before you're able to develop strategies As a result, easily discouraged gamers will bail on this early, even if they're succeeding, because they'll have no idea why they're succeeding. On the other hand, those that stick with it will be rewarded with a more satisfying gaming experience with a longer shelf life than most other iPod games.
