Match 3 Goes 3D In Challenging New Spatial Puzzler Cube Orbit
Match-3 puzzlers tend to be pretty straightforward affairs but a fascinating new take on the game type called Cube Orbit will change how you look at this genre, literally. Created by indie developer Cube Monster Games, Cube Orbit is a mind bending rotating puzzler that tasks players with chaining together multicolored blocks to methodically dismantle physics defying Rubik’s cube like structures before time runs out. As each level slowly spins players must strategically place the random procession of colors they are given in just the right spots so they can link together sequences that will trigger lucrative combos. In addition to a large selection of levels there are also several different objective types to conquer such as reaching the cube’s core or pulling off a certain number of combos to help keep things interesting. When the going gets tough players can use points garnered in previous stages to enable special abilities to assist them in their endeavors. Match-3 puzzler fans will appreciate Cube Orbit’s trippy 3D approach to the genre.
Cube Orbit is free to download on Android and iOS.
