Loopy Cubes: iPhone Written App Review
Were you the kind of kid who loved solving puzzles like Rubik’s Cubes? Or, maybe you and ole Rubik’s never got along, but you always wished you had? Now there’s an app that makes color-coding logic puzzlers cool again. It’s called Loopy Cubes and it’s by LOGI-COMP GAMES LTD.
In the Loopy Cubes iPhone app, it’s your job to untangle color puzzles made of blocks. Each level will tell you the color the whole playing board is meant to be, and then it’s your job to twist the blocks left and right, and up and down to accomplish the feat.
Now, this is no walk in the park. You might fly through a few tutorial levels, or cream the easy ones, but eventually, this app is designed to challenge even the most logical among us with its wily ways. And with four different difficulty levels (easy, normal, hard and very hard, in case you were wondering) this app definitely caters to folks of all different capacities.
But, is it fun? Actually, the Loopy Cubes iPhone app is deceptively simple and instantly addictive. The premise is so simple yet constantly applied in different ways thanks to the game’s huge variety of levels, which unlock as you earn star points by beating the timer and solving puzzles with plenty of panache.
The game also tracks your high scores. Loopy Cubes provides players with hours of puzzle solving fun. I did run into a few operational issues. But more about that after the cut.
Layout & Design:
While the game levels and controls are easy enough to manipulate and master, I did run into a few running issues with the Loopy Cubes iPhone app. When I was trying to load a new level after changing the game’s difficulty settings, the board popped up but failed to randomize the colors. Another thing I noticed is that it’s a bit difficult to navigate the app’s levels without accidentally launching one. In fact, levels launched at random times while I was simply moving around the app more than once.
When an app looks so simple and straightforward, issues like this are pretty disappointing.
With a low price tag of just $.99, Loopy Cubes is definitely poised to make itself a big hit among the puzzle solving crowd. This app has enough variety to keep it interesting for a long time, and enough levels to make even the most logical puzzler distracted for some time.
Despite a few concerns about the app’s issues, I can whole heartedly recommend the Loopy Cubes app to avid gamers anywhere who are looking for a new way to attack an old puzzle.
Loopy Cubes iPhone app requires iOS 3.1.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
