WINNER: IGF China award for BEST GAME!

Cubetractor is a neo-retroesque action-strategy-puzzle hybrid where you defeat enemies through an unconventional cube-pulling, turret-buildling mechanic.


The game carries elements of a reverse tower defence and a grounded bullet-hell dodger to deliver a unique gameplay experience presented in a classic top-down perspective.


You play as Endroi, a menacingly happy-go-lucky quadrubot as he strives to master the art of Cubetracting -- the art of attracting Cubes. It's a deceptively straightforward skill that involves dexterity, acute awareness, multi-tasking and tactical positioning. You'll have to strategize, solve and fight your way through multitudes of enemy installations to achieve your coveted goal.

Features

  • 40+ maps for you to pull, crush and build: Levels carefully designed to bring out the emergent dynamics in a unique mechanic.
  • Symmetrical Balance: Why do bad guys always have to be stronger than you? In Cubetractor, the enemy structures are exactly the same as yours, other than they got there first. Defeating them is a matter of thoughtful timing and positioning.
  • Purely indie-made: Done by 2 people, living off their savings, working off random coffee joints.
  • Hardcore Awards for Hardcore Players: The main levels are designed for speedruns. Collect all the batteries, reach the finishing goal within impressively tight time limits -- do all that without a scratch -- to earn the most coveted of accolades. Don't worry, there are also options for those of us that are more human.

I would've thought this was a flash game for 8 year olds...but no, it's a legitimate Steam game.

Glad I didn't WASTE my money on this, as I got it in a bundle. If I had seen this anywhere else, I would've laughed.

Delightful real-time puzzle game. The cube pulling control is a clever idea, and the levels follow a nice difficulty curve. Things were challenging enough that I didn't get bored but I also never felt stuck. It's refreshing to see a puzzle game with a unique game mechanic, one that isn't yet another familiar type like a Bejeweled clone (match-3). The plot is goofy but harmless. It's short-ish (I finished it in ~7 hours) and I found it to be a lot of fun.

An honestly 100% original gameplay hook. Imagine solving simple sliding block puzzles with telekenesis while weaving your way through a swarming bullet hell, and you'll more or less have a rough idea of what this game is like. You earn medals at the end of each mission for grabbing all collectibles, for taking zero damage, and for speed.

Beware trials/time attack/speed run fanatics: getting a master star on some of these levels is HARD.

A fun and very original little game. The SNES style pixel art is a charming bonus.

Very very hard game, takes major concentration and intense thinking in order to push through the levels. Music is nice and retro, graphics are nice and retro, gameplay is very nice and unique. Would recommend to anyone who likes retro and puzzle games. Hell, I would recommend it to anyone.

To give you an idea of how challenging this game is, I was only a couple of levels in and I was already delcaring that the level I was stuck on was "impossible" and was ready to look up tutorials.

A cute little game which has you pulling blocks to build towers to defeat other towers..

It's very basic...more basic than free flash games...or iOS games...

Definitely not worth a purchase...at the very most you'll spend about 1 hour on this game, and then discover how little it has to offer.

Keep in mind, this is not "Tower Defense" , this is a very basic puzzle game which focusing on dodging bullets, and timing actions perfectly to build the correct setup to complete each level.

To get a basic idea... you are a robot which has no abilities besides movement, and the ability to pull blocks across the map. There will be enemies on the level which you have to destroy. You can pull blocks over your enemies, or you can pull two blocks together to create a turret. While this is happening you will have to dodge bullets and avoid being taken out yourself. That is basically the entire game.
