[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Throughout the 1980's and 1990's, millions of people around the world spent an enormous amount of time happily moving blocks around to feed their never-ending Tetris obsession. Fast forward a few decades, and developers T&T have taken things to a whole new level with their ultra addictive new no-cost game CubX.
Available for both iOS and Android devices, CubX echoes Tetris in the sense that users must skillfully catch falling blocks (which the app calls "tetrominos") in order to create lines, which then disappear. Failing to do this often or quickly enough ends the game. However, CubX is by no means a Tetris knock-off, because there are four innovative aspects that are sure to create a whole new generation of addicted fans: the platform, the orientation, multiple games, and boosters.
* The platform is a bar that users move around their screen, in order to carefully and cleverly catch blocks, and therefore clear more lines.
* Orientation refers to the fact that the blocks don't just drop from the top-down. They also "float" from the bottom-up. This is made possible by the above-noted movable platform.
* Users can also switch between six challenging and fun game modes, including: Classic, CubX, Arcade (start with some blocks), Time Trial (beat the clock), Contract (do whatever the game demands), and Missions (complete over 120 missions or levels).
* Users can also unlock four boosters in order to: clear the entire screen, clear the upper part of the screen, clear the lower part of the screen, or remove residues from the screen.
Other CubX special features include:
* Sharp high-resolution graphics
* A tutorial to help new users get familiar with the gameplay
* Leaderboard integration to earn bragging rights
* Excellent music and sound effects
"The idea behind CubX is very simple to understand: users don't control the pieces anymore. Instead they control the platform that catches the pieces," commented Jean-Baptiste Truong of T&T. "But mastering CubX is a totally different story! Some of the higher levels are totally mind-bending, and users will need all of their skill to clear lines, score points, and keep the tetrominos from winning the day!"
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 17.0 MB
