Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed with the new update
Cube runner is a game I’ve loved for years. However, with the new update, I find myself looking for the old version, and dislike the new graphics and the new icon, which make the game too distracting when you just want to focus on the real point of the game, which is getting the icon around the blocks. I am also not a fan of the endless lives, which was actually a smart idea when I looked at the breakdown of the new update and how they explained it, however I was confused when I got to the updated app and hadn’t seen the breakdown of the new update, because the endless lives could have of been explained better on the updated app. Cube runner was a game that was noted and loved for it simplicity as you may see in reviews from before the update. It seems like cube runner just tried to make itself like every other average game on the market, and I believe that there was a way to incorporate some of the things in this new update into another update, but it didn’t need to completely change, because with the new update, it has been stripped of its charm and simplicity, which was its most notable and favorable characteristics. Overall in case you couldn’t tell I am greatly dissatisfied with this new update.
A terrible makeover!
Whoever redesigned the new CubeRunner app should be selling shoes instead. Leaving aside how truly ugly some of the landscape designs are, one of the biggest problems with this new version is that there is not enough contrast between the plane and the various backgrounds. This makes it very hard to see the plane in way too many instances. This was never an issue with the previous incarnation, which used a bold white inverted V” in place of a realistic airplane icon. The attempt to make the plane more realistic has resulted in a nondescript gray color that is very hard to follow against most of the backgrounds. Another big issue is that the plane’s wingspan is too wide. Even though the mazes are now rendered horizontally, it is much harder (if not impossible) to dart through congested clusters of cubes. Really, this game is now a mess! CubeRunner was one of the first apps I downloaded when I bought the very first iPhone, and I have enjoyed it for all these years. But now I may very well delete it and forget that it ever existed. Or perhaps I will fire up my old iPhone 4S, which has been gathering dust for years, just to play the classic version of CubeRunner. I would give this version zero stars if possible.
Simple but perfectly executed.
Cube runner is a game that seems very simple when you first pick it up. I have great nostalgia for it during my early years on my iPod Touch, and picked it up again to see why it was so addictive back then. It really excels in its execution. The graphics are minimalistic, but there are lots of cool touches, like a cool transition to first person mode, a neat death animation and lots of variety between levels. I also love the soundtrack. It's a lot of catchy and upbeat electronic tracks that fit the levels perfectly. There are lots of touches that make the game feel lovingly crafted, like the great level design, the option to play in portrait or landscape mode, and the option to play user levels. If you think this game is just a simple endless runner, give it a fair chance and I think you'll see how great it is.
