I haven't played cubemen since the release of the new updates, so I will be updating this review once I have had the chance to test out the new unit balances.

If you're not playing this game to compete with friends, but rather just occasionally compete against the AI then you will probably enjoy this game. It offers interesting new features such a placing mines and building walls, which allow you to control the enemy flow. By using special units you or the enemy can disassemble the walls. The AI are rather simple and in reality offer no competition even on the hardest difficulty. Although, unlike the first cubemen the interesting feature this one has to offer is that the units can be upgraded. This means you can build armies up with strong weak units rather than more expensive units. The problem is this leads to unbalances. In the original if you lost the first fight you could send your cubemen out and kill the unit that killed yours without too much difficulty now the player can heal the unit by upgrading it and you're stuck in second place for the rest of the game. Because the new unit has upgraded range and damage so winning the second round with your un-upgraded stock unit is not too likely.

The campaign is just mission after mission with no story, random levels, and increasing wave numbers. The campaign is rather lacking as the enemy does not possess special units so you can easily control enemy flow by using wall placements. I also found myself only ever using Grill units throughout the campaign and just upgrading them. You will also notice there is no saving throughout the campaign so you may want to reserve about three hours to give yourself enough time to play through it.

The Price:
Cubemen 2, another installment to the Cubemen series. The game is sort of fun, and if you can get it for under $1.99 then it’s not a bad price either. This game is on the itunes app store for $1.99 so the fact it is here for $7.99 just seems plain ridiculous.

All in all I am going to recommend this game, but only if you can get it for the right price. $7.99 is absurd and honestly I am amazed 3 Sprockets has the audacity to ask for such a high figure with this game. Despite the price 3 Sprockets offers a fun little games; Cubemen 2 has interesting game types which offer new strategies not demanded from the first game and a map editor so you can create your maps that optimize each game type. If you ever played Warcraft III and liked Footman Wars then this is probably the game for you.

+Map editor
+New units (that allow you to control enemy flow)
+Unit upgrades
+New game types (that allow for players to not just perfect one strategy)
+Smoother gameplay

-Boring campaign
-Units can be hard to click sometimes resulting in the unit you were last on running next to the location of the unit you want to select (should have a different select and move key)
-The health tile heals too rapidly (one player can easily hold the health tile)
-Sometimes units do not turn by themselves instead they just stop fighting when units walk past their periphery.
-Does not have the epic menu music like in the original cubemen.

Really well done! Enjoyed the first Cubemen, and I'm loving the second so far. The developers really made improvements all around, from the menus, to the characters, to gameplay and modes.. etc. Def worth the buy, would love to see more people on playing again, I know my crew will be. Great job *cha-chiing!*

It's certainly an improvement over the original, as far as visual audio appeal and fluidity. That said, the gameplay is just as simple as before.

Cubemen 2 is like a combination of RTS and Chess.
It can be fairly repetitive, deplying units over and over again and adjusting their formation to decrease the chance of their death, but at the same time, you can use all sorts of different tactics to control the field.
It's also a little easier and more dynamic than the original Cubemen.

Well, at least some innovation to Tower Defense genre. Haven't been entertained by TD since Defender's Quest.

I reviewed the original Cubemen game quite a while ago, so since the core gameplay, mechanics and art style are all essentially the same, read that review if you want to know my thoughts on those areas, it saves me repeating myself here.

Cubemen 2 is a nice addition to the Cubemen series, like I already said, it's very similar to the original game but brings a few new aditions, changes and improvements to the table. Some of said changes consist of the ability to upgrade units, adds some new units and removes some older units (Medics for example are no longer featured, but instead you get mines, engineers and walls) just to name a few. Cubemen 2 also brings in many new game modes and options which adds much more variety to the singleplayer and multiplayer skirmishes, thus adding more playability and fun into the game. For these reasons alone, it probably makes Cubemen 2 the superior game out of the two, but personally, I prefer the interface in the first game as it feels less cluttered, but that's about it, in terms of gameplay and options, this one excells greatly.

There are some other new features in Cubemen 2 such as level and unit skins, while a nice adition I think one of the things that gives Cubemen it's charm is it's simplicity, these skins kind of take that away from the game, but it's a good addition non-the-less as it adds a little bit more variety and be more to the taste of some players.

My only little problem with Cubemen 2 is the lack of a real singleplayer campaign, there are two scenarios called "defense campaigns" but they're not necessarily as good as they can be and feel more like aditional tutorial levels, it feels like a bit of a wasted oportunity to me. There are a good selection of maps to play single and multiplayer games on, plus a fairly large library of fan-created maps, some of which are really well made and fun to play, so there's still that! If 3Sprockets plan on developing another Cubemen game, I hope they consider a lengthy and in-depth campaign.

All in all, just like the first game Cubemen 2 is lots of fun in both single and multiplayer, many new options and mechanics brought to the table improve the experience. A great blend of Tower Defense and Real-Time Strategy, I would recommend to just about anybody. This game is practically given away in Steam sales so pick it up if you get a chace!

This game merges tower defense with real time strategy. Think Team Fortress 2, with smaller maps, always on Comannder from Battlefield, and everybody actually does what you say.

You have 10 different classes of Cubemen. You have Pistol, Flint, Lightning, Ice, Rocket, Laser, Sniper, Engineer, Wall, and Mine. You move them around the map, and whenever somebody gets inside their shooting range, they shoot.

You can play online with up to 5 other people, with modes such as Mayhem, CTF, Skirmish, and Territory. You can play with the AI if you want.

In singleplayer, it's tower defense, but in real time. Each wave starts on its own, which creates a sense of danger. Your opponents charge WILL shoot back at your defenses, so make sure you have a ton of them.

This game is amazing and I would suggest it to anyone who likes strategy games.

I absolutely love this game. I've bought over five copies for both myself and my friends. It's not too complex, but it's a nice mix between an rts and a tower defense. I only wish more people played it, as that is the only thing keeping me from playing this constantly.

This game is Tower defense done right. The game is very simple to pick up but has multiple ways of completing an objective. The multiple game modes are an added bonus and the level designer is beyond good. All in all a good game.

I'd say this isn't too bad, but it's not very popular, though I believe it is avalible for Wii U so I thought it would be more popular than it is. The thing is how much you have to click on your men to move and have to concerntrate so much on everything it just makes it challenging but pretty cool, though.

The only complaint is a big one: I am the ONLY one online so I haven't even got a chance to play with other players. Shame.

This game suffers from the same issues as Cubemen 1. The tower defense itself is very sketchy - your own units often miss the enemies, you earn very little money to keep up with the huge difficult spikes in later waves, and for some reason base units cost more as you buy more (what other tower defense game does this?). Even though creating your own levels is OK, the multiplayer portion is dead. I played through one campaign that took my about 90 minutes, which is way too long for a game with very little variety. Why are there 15 levels per campaign with each level having anywhere from 12-19 waves? It lasts way too long and eventually becomes boring. There are far better and more simplistic tower defense games on Steam, so don't bother with this one.

I really like this game. Units are good, gameplay is pretty fun, and the map editor is a plus. I think the price might be a bit too high for what you are getting. If you can pick it up in a sale or can get it some other way then BUY this game.
