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.

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.

Gameplay:
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.

Campaign:
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.

Results:
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.

Pros:
+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

Cons:
-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!*

Really fun to play with friends
I love how you can make your own levels, but the level editor COULD be improved a bit
I still like this game a lot though
It's very strategic.
You'll get exactly what they promise, a decent tower defense game. Not too much else, but a really fun experience nonetheless :)
9/10

Cubemen 2 is a stark improvment from the first Cubmen. With new units, maps, and slightly different AI. It's a new experience for any RTS player. The campaign is in my opinion still unbalanced, but not as bad as the first Cubemen. The textures and menus are better than the first cubemen. And the skins and themes are a fun adition as well. I like the updated GUI and teleporter and medic station features. Overall the gameplay is good and entertaining, however I reccomend the freeplay mode more than anything else.

Sadly, like the first cubemen, the multiplayer is sullen and empty. It's totally useless.

The level editor is a load of fun and there are many published maps to play.

The game is decent for the price, especially when your an avid RTS player.

Overall; the game is a LOT better than the first Cubemen, 8/10

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.

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.

It's still Cubemen and if you are sick of Tower Defense/didn't like the first, you won't like this. I got through a campaign, but most of the time levels just felt too long. By the end of campaign NUMBER ONE (of ???) they were up to 19 waves a level with no way to summon the next that I found. Timer to the next wave doesn't begin until all enemies spawn.

That said, it's tower defense where all the towers are little men with weapons who you can move on the fly. Cool concept but nothing amazing is done with it.

Give it a chance. You'd be surprised who's breaking up the new order.

Stupid games. Scatterbrained games. Half-baked, dozy developers! We are angler of a watery expanse, the salt chuck composed of lowly, high-budget, invulnerable endeavors, forced down the throats of whiny PC-owning, sweaty computers and consumers. Yet, in this miserable ocean, a lone seafarer of incomparable greatness, treads along these hopeless economic waters, with the row of 3d firs person shooter's retribution, and paddle-boat of introspective creation. This sailor lays waste to all sweaty ogres and gross trolls in the way!!! Sea Snakes (EA games), Monsters (FunCom), very poisonous sea anenomes (BigHouse Games), and the sea serpent of them all (Minecraft ripoffs), have attempted to destroy our noble warrior but the spirit of promising individual economic pursuit and unfiltered, dynamic, organic game generation.

Standing miles away from the steed's overwhelmingly luminscent vessel, stands yourself. A clear, uncomplicated PC-gamer, ready to get his hands on the next big release, like Valve's "Left For Dead 2", Minecraft (from Sweden), or Starcraft. Those were the memories that remind you today what big, things, mean! Suddenly, the largest tsunami you could even see comes crashing into your frail teenage body, densely compressed water projectiles penetrating your life-source™. You are drowning. Big time. Oxygen out of your longs like nobody could know, and then, crash, punches from the sea. Grand theft auto throws a fist into your meesly, uneducated and easily entertained stomach, while Super Hexagon, and the likes of other joke titles of the 2012 indie "community" come splashing into your earing holes. Now, now. Don't be afraid. It's like you've seen god. (long break here before you read the next part) You've seen god a million times in a single second. This hero from the boat out of the tsunami of fu ked up games reaches for you hand and takes you along.

At the fastest speed ever, much more than light, you are exposed to a new reality. Your new comrade's unparalleled navigation skills take you to a stellar new reality. Here, in his hand (one box), he hands you the game: Cubemen 2. Now, sure, you may have been the hotshot who thought he'd be alive when his grandkids could buy this game, but this was no joke. You feel the game's unique physical presence, much like its effect on PC-gamers in the cyber universe. You delve into this portal of freedom. You feel lifted from the obligations of rushed-out, hollywood mega graphix, game games. Cubemen 2's incentivizing achievements, complicated gamemodes rivaling league of legends and mobas combined, awesome skin customization, and general reliability as a serious gaming situation, ramps up the intensity that the original title obtained awareness for.

I'm surely not one to romanticize my thoughts on sequels, but for the first time ever, I'd really love to take this one out on an e-date.

Cubemen 2, 2000 hours won't even fill your void for this game. Not even.

Please buy!

I like the game, It's just the game gets ruined when the AI spams the mine characters around your base. It's not tactics. Its spamming, It makes the game beyond boring when they spam.Almost all the games characters are pointless except the basic infantry guy whom you can spam too who does more damage than the other gys and is MUCH cheaper. I'd reccomend Cubemen one than this one. Get that game.

Cubemen 2 is a strategy game where you use several types of cubemen to defeat your opponent. The types of cubemen range from soldiers with pistols to flamethrowers to rocket launchers to sniper rifles to ones that turn into walls and land mines. To unlock these units during a game, you buy them with cubes which you get for defeating enemies. Each time you buy a new unit, the price for that unit goes up one cube. For example, if you buy a flamethrower cubeman for 20 cubes the price goes up to 21 and so on. There are a few different game modes like defense, skirmish, rescue, and capture the flag. The game also comes with a level editor so you can make new levels and upload them so other people can play and rate them. Because of this, you may be finding yourself finding lots of interesting levels that you can play other than the ones that come with the game. This game also has an awesome techno soundtrack.

I recommend this game, but I think $8 is a little too much for this game. If this game interests you, I would suggest waiting for it to go on sale. I wouldn't say you'd play this for hours straight, but it's a good game to get if you're looking for something new and interesting to keep you occupied for a few minutes.
