These tiles can be flipped for access to critical hints to solve different levels. They may or may not help you, so pay attention!

The Good:
-Good pacing in game.
-Actually makes you think (in some levels).

The Bad:
-Difficulty curve is uneven, many levels are just too easy and others are more difficult all of a sudden.
-Short, not a lot of variation.

Grabbed this because it was - A) on sale, and B) dropped trading cards. Seemed like an easy way to use up steam funds and break even.

But wow, the gameplay actually takes some lateral thinking to get around the puzzles in the game! It's very casual compared to platformers like vvvvv, 140, or spelunky, but this game takes a simple mechanic of tiles changing as you move past them, and works with it to create an interesting, curious, yet fun and laid back puzzle platformer.

Well worth the $1.74 it's currently selling for in the November sale. Check it out!

A mediocre, painfully monotonous puzzle platformer. The minimal challenge present is largely artificial, often based on some combination of biased hit detection, erratic enemy patterns or awkward portal jumping.

I do give it credit for it's appropriately saccharine concept, but Sugar Cube isn't really worth wading through for that alone.
