Great game to feed a puzzle habit

I’ve always loved puzzle games. This one combines the best of matching puzzles, with 3D spacial thinking and interesting tools and effects. It works smoothly, easily, and I caught myself playing 10 rounds in a row while forgetting to blink.

It’s also great that you can just play for a few minutes because it saves where you are in the game no matter when you stop. So if you’re looking to spend a little time during a commute, in a teleconference, or while waiting for someone to show up you can stop whenever.

Best few bucks I’ve spent on a game in years.

Fully functioning app. Stellar.

Music plays and app states to place Cube before camera so that it can be scanned. This I did and held Cube in place for at least 3 minutes but app never scanned. Nice music though. Perhaps developers will fix the scanning issue so that I can enjoy this purchased app.
Merry Christmas all.

Hold the just started as I tried one more time. I will amend this review after I’ve played with app for a bit.

Okay I don’t know what happened but this game now works and it rocks! Maybe it was just a learning issue.
All apps for the Merge Cube should be designed this way. You can select the flashlight within this game. No need to remove the headset. Wonderful interface. You won’t be disappointed with this title. Excuse me but I want to get back to the game.

What a fun quick game

I did this game with just my phone, not the headset. Kind of a cube-y Tetris type game, which I love. I also enjoy being able to play with it for a few minutes and go back to it and continue where I left off. Great game that seems to work really well with the cube.
