Vubu: Ancients of the Sky

The Vubu sky sanctuaries are overrun with a terrible curse and must be evacuated. Guide the Vubu to the portals while keeping them away from traps and ledges. There's one catch - they all move in unison! Careful positioning is required and each Vubu type has its own unique traits.

Vubu is a logic puzzle game that involves sliding pieces together towards the goals. Each board or level is a small maze that floats in the sky and the pieces can be lost if they fall off the edge or land on a trap. Be sure to take advantage of each Vubu's special abilities. They can either help or get in the way.

GREAT brain teaser!!

I love logic puzzles, and this one is one of the best. I just found it hidden away in the millions of apps listed. But I'm so glad I found it! I couldn't find a trial, so I paid for the full version, which is much less than the hours of entertainment I will be getting from playing! If there hadn't been other reviews from previous versions, I might have passed. So I'm adding my review in hopes that other puzzlers find it and decide to play. It's very much worth it!

Great; must-have for puzzle game lovers

I'm 90% sure I've played some Flash/Java applet game with this mechanic before (all the pieces move at once, you must get them in the holes) but that doesn't matter - this game takes the concept to a whole new level. The different pieces, the ways they are used together, combined with the mythological atmopshere created by the back story, music and graphic schemes really gives this otherwise simple puzzle game a lot of personality.

The difficulty curve is steep but I have found the game enjoyable so far. You'll want to hover any unfamiliar looking object to read its description, as sometimes new obstacles are introduced in the middle of a complex puzzle. Vubu doesn't mess around with tutorial levels for each object like some puzzlers - the later levels are consistantly harder than the earlier ones.

The graphics and soundtrack are top notch. And from what it looks like, you get a ton of puzzles. I haven't even finished the Standard set. If you enjoy puzzle games at all you will want to get this app. You will spend a lot of hours on it and it is a good value for $1.99. My only small gripe with it was that it is hard to reach the level select screen to jump levels (you have to quit out to the title first) but it seems like they have fixed that in the new version.

Awesome puzzle app! This is among the very best logic puzzles I've seen - I love it! The concept is extremely clever with intriguing variations, and the puzzles are incredibly challenging. This one will definitely require you to do some serious thinking, but that's how you develop your problem solving skills. The graphics and music are also very well done, and (according to the credits) all by the single author! I'm in awe. Well done! I'm already looking forward to a sequel. Check out the LITE version if you want to "try before you buy", but the full game is well worth the price in my book! Thanks for the great app - keep them coming!
