'Qube' Released
11:15 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Catara Software has announced the release of Qube, a familiar yet interesting twist on a classic style of puzzle gaming. Carbonized for Mac OS X, this attractive game puts a "twist" on the familiar Tetris. Here are details from the press release:

Catara Software announced
today the release of their new game Qube. Qube is an addictive action
puzzle with a twist. Qube will keep you from performing real work for
hours on end.

The object of Qube is to keep a well clear of "qubes" by arranging
falling pieces to form solid rows. Some pieces contain qubes that are
not solid. These partially solid qubes, "partials," must be combined
with other partials to form solid qubes. Partials will move through
other partials but not solids. A row can not be removed if it has one or
more partials.

"After a thorough flogging by a group of top-notch beta testers, Qube is
ready for public consumption," said Steve Marcotte, president of Catara
Software. "We think the Mac gaming community will be pleased."

Qube requires strategy, patience, and of course quick fingers. It is
the perfect piece of anti-productivity software. Suitable for the whole
family, even Grandpa.

Qube features 16-Bit color, stereo sounds, and special effects. Qube
uses Apple's CarbonLib 1.1 to maintain compatibility with both MacOS X
as well as Classic MacOS. Qube is $20 shareware and is available for
immediate download from the Catara web site.

You can also find it (of course) at MGF. Follow the links below for more details.
