OverviewOverview

The Last Cube is a puzzle platform game where you guide a cube through a series of 3D mazes to save the world from destruction. Because you have to get the right side of the cube on the right square to trigger abilities and progress, it creates a fascinating mix of puzzle, platform and story.

Play involves moving a special cube through a series of mazes. To do this you need to gain stickers, which allow you to do things like create a temporary helper cube, spinning on the spot and moving through the air. These powers enable you to complete the puzzles and move through the world.

As you play, so you encounter more stickers, gain more powers and use them to overcome more complex challenges. All the while you discover more about the cube's ancestors, why the world is headed for destruction and even begin to unpack the cube's own story.

The result is a game that mixes geographic puzzles and exploration in an interesting and often deft way, allowing you to discover more about the world around you as you solve the ever increasingly complex puzzles. It is not only beautiful, but it is addictive and fun to play as the game supports and challenges you in equal measure.

Although there is no selectable difficulty, there is a help option that indicates how to get a particular face of the cube on a particular square. The game pops up a reminder for this tip if you are inactive for a number of seconds.

Most puzzles don't require quick reactions. There are some that require you to rotate and press a button within a second. The main story is Low Pressure, although there are some optional challenge levels with time limits.

Controller vibration mirrors some game audio and offers minor information about success or failure of interactions. You can zoom the camera in whilst playing if you need elements to be larger. The main cube and interactive elements are highlighted with a white or glowing outline.

You can turn off Motion Blur to ease motion sickness. Each of the six stickers have a different colour, these are also indicated by symbols.

Elements in the game make a sound with positional audio.
