[prMac.com] Wayne, New Jersey - For casual game players looking for a new game that blends outer space puzzles with fast-paced action, WonderStar Games today announces the launch of Lost in Cube, its new app for iPhone, and Lost in Cube HD, designed for iPad.
"Lost in Cube is a well-crafted, casual puzzle game that you can enjoy any time," said Justin Hur, CEO of WonderStar Games. "But the game is very addictive - there are 24 exciting Cubes that will keep you playing for hours."
Combining science fiction with casual gaming, Lost in Cube follows the journey of Qubby, an adventurous meteoroid that has lost his way in a galaxy unlike any other. Here, Qubby finds himself trapped inside the Cube, and it is the player's objective to help him escape.
Game play revolves around using three simple controls to release Qubby from the Cube while collecting valuable gems hidden inside space rocks. Players can drag, swipe, or tap the screen to make Qubby fly or stop. He can fly slowly and follow the direction of the player's fingertip or he can fly fast enough to blast away anything in his path.
"The game's simple controls are easy enough for kids to enjoy as well as adults," Justin Hur said. "Lost in Cube is a great casual game for children who like solving interactive mazes."
As Qubby looks for his escape route, players can explore the Cube and find the many treasures and dangers that await. They collect valuable gems, destroy dangerous enemies that stand in their way while avoiding blackholes that will send Qubby to a random location of the Cube.
From there, the player must find an exit before time runs out. Leading Qubby to hit a switch will open four circular portals that teleport him to another side of the Cube. Making his way to the Posterior side of Cube, Qubby can access the exit portal and escape.
While Lost in Cube is meant primarily for casual gamers, the game has been described as being "very addictive", already garnering 5-star ratings on the iTunes App Store within its first week of release. "My 12 year old daughter loves it!" said one player in a review. "It's fun, charming, and challenging. Great game to recommend."
The game has a total of 24 cubes to complete and 4 goals to achieve, providing a wide range of unique challenges for gamers.
