Granted, it's only the end of January in 2016....

Make note: "Cubixx HD" is easily my first candidate for "Game of the year" for 2016 on the PC! ...Yes, people, it's THAT good!!

This game is simple to learn and play, but quickly becomes a crazy frenzy just to stay alive, much less accomplish the goals of cutting off a varying percentage of the cube area to beat each progressing level! It's so addicting and so much fun that this game would make a great center piece attraction for any party or get together!

Much like Pacman Championship Edition DX brilliantly took Pacman into the 21st century with it's high adrenaline and furious gameplay, Cubixx HD does the exact same thing for another 80s arcade classic called "Qix". This is a brilliant and expertly designed and programmed remake of the popular 80's arcade classic "Qix" with more facets, more enemies, and more high octane fuse-burning action than Qix ever dreamed of!

Awesome! Even if this game was $25 USD, it would still be a bargain! Highly recommended, scoring a 95% score from me in my video review, and getting one of my rare "MUST BUY!" suggestions! My first personal candidate for "Game of the Year" on the PC in 2016! ^5 to Laughing Jackal for brilliantly bringing one of my favorite old arcade games from the Commodore 64 to today's PC in style and modern, epic cool gaming flavor!

Using your laser, it’s your goal to cut up the plates of a three dimensional cube whilst avoiding and eliminating various types of enemies that are lurking on the cubes faces. Slice your way through the plates whilst tapping your feet to the hypnotic techno beat that flows elegantly alongside the light show going on around you.

Cubixx HD is a game that is inspired by the old arcade game, “Qix”, a game I remember owning on my trusty Gameboy, sadly however, back then I was a child and for some reason I didn’t enjoy it. High School years came forth and I found myself glued to Flash game websites playing games of the same nature.

To me, this was a nostalgic experience; reminding me of my childhood, and now it’s 2016. Time to tuck up warm and have a look at this game. Originally, Cubixx was released on the Playstation 3 back in 2009, and then in 2011 they released the HD Remake for the PS3. This year, 2016 see’s the Playstation title come to life on the PC.

I made a video review showing off how well this game works with the Steam Controller -
For those that prefer a written review, here it is:

The transition from PS3 exclusivity to the PC platform has been pretty seamless for Cubixx HD. The game is obviously designed to be used with a controller but keyboard support has been added with the PC release - Cubixx HD is so simple it would be pretty hard to mess up.

I decided to welcome it to the PC community by testing it out with the Steam controller, a device that wasn't even a concept when this game was initially released on the PS3. It works outstandingly well, the joystick and button combo makes gameplay feel exactly how it did on the PlayStation. The left trackpad works pretty well too, though doesn't feel as natural and may take some getting used to. Finally the back paddles of the steam controller give an extra level of customisability, allowing you to get your play style exactly how you like it.

The game itself has a huge amount of content. For the Price, (currently less than £4) it’s an absolute bargain. It's obviously been priced low because it's an older game, but it's previous platform exclusivity probably means that it's a fresh game to a lot of people. (Released in 2011 for PS3 only, then ported to the PC in January 2016)

The game has a local multiplayer feature that allows up to 7 players to play at once in a split screen setup. I have no idea how well that would work, I guess you would need a decent USB hub and huge screen to get that working! It looks like there is no option for internet based multiplayer, which would have been a nice feature to add to the PC port.

I hope you found this short review helpful!

I have played little of this game as of writing this but I am a fan of it - I wouldn't say it is the best game but its fun when you want to just sit and relax or have a bit of fun without going overboard. I'm a fan of the concept but as some other reviews say, it does get a bit repetitive after a while which is why I haven't played too much of it; a lot of potential though. :)

This game is a remake version of a Cubixx game from PSP and I think its pretty good to have a content that isn`t available from PSP.

Its basicly a Qix in a nutshell, its a Mixed ideas between Qix and 3D Perspective, giving a Fast-Paced Arcade Slice and Dice gameplay.
Its really addicting to play this game, and added Steam Leaderboard brings more competitive to the gameplay.

The only thing that I really wish is Multiplayer, since this game supports up to 8 players, if I`m not mistaken, and I really wish if there's an Online mode where you can play multiplayer also.

To sums up, its a great game :)

I really wish we had a "meh" button to choose from. This game has been delivered well.The concept of the gameplay is good, graphics and audio are functional.But it didn't take long for the gameplay to start to feel repetitive and bland. The price seems about right If you are a big fan of puzzlers perhaps this game is right for you.
Please check out my video below for a much more in depth look.

You can see the full review here:

It seems Laughing Jackal have a tendancy to make small titles that are very basic and simple in ther design. Hey, I'm not complaining, we could do with more games that you can just pick up and play that don't weigh you down with narrative or complex controles or gameplay mechanics.

For starters, what is it? It's an Action Arcade game where the main goal is to murder innocent cubes and expose there core to blow them up. Now how do you go about doing that? Simple, you cut each side of the cube with a giant laser until you've cut away a certain percentage to beat that level. I did say that it was fairly simple didn't I.
The gameplay consists of six sides of the cube where you - the small blue dot, are tasked with distroying the cube as previouosly mentioned above. There are 50 levels all with there own gimicks and variety of enemies which some intend to stop you but the others don't really care, but they all have the intent to kill you. If any of them (Apart from the black holes) touch you, you instantly lose a life, but that isn't the only way to lose a life. Letting any of the orange or purple sqaures touch the line that you are currently using to cut the cube, that can also make you lose a life. Basic, but challenging with more enemies appearing on the cube to hinder your progress. Controls are fairly simplistic, left analouge stick or D-pad to move, A button to fire your laser, that's about it really.

The difficulty is how you'd the middle, fair but also not fair. It requires you to think carefully how you're gonna chip away at the cube while avoiding all the nasties but making sure you're making suficient progress at the same time. It doesn't want you to take your time as it encourages you to think on your feet. At the same time however, with the amount of enemies it throws at you with there own abilities that cause different problems can lead to a lot of frustrating moments where it becomes increasingly difficult for all the wrong reasons.

Art style is basic, but it's as good as it needs to be. If they where to overcomplicate the art style with particle effects or flashing lighting, it could end up being very distracting and make you lose your concerntration making the game more frustrating.

Soundtrack is quite good, very electronic with some dubstep, even though that may turn some people off, I think it goes very well with the game.

Conclusion. It is a fairly adictive game with challenge even though the challenge is kind of misplaced and used incorrectly, it can still make for some really tense moments that can make your butt clench so much you wouldn't be able to get a cactus needle up there. There are six game modes that centre around doing the same thing just with different requirements and goals. There is only local multiplayer so don't expect any online play, other then the leaderboards.

A 3D Cube-Cutting Action Puzzle Game Similar to Jezzball
The goal of the game is cut out sections of the cube without the enemies touching you or your line.

+ Visually appealing
+ Fun fast-paced intense gameplay
+ Great soundtrack
+ Combos/Score Multipliers/Power-Ups/Leaderboards/Etc.
+ A variety of different enemies to avoid
+ Plenty of extra lives (every 200k points = extra life, + extra life power ups)
+ Great looking effects (firework-like explosion when you die, smoke effects following the laser, etc.)

- It's hard to tell what power up you picked up
- Later stages get a bit too hecktic with flashing lights and enemies all over
- I feel like there should have been different sized shapes instead of the same cube each stage, I could imagine a cylinder, or pryramid would have been fun.

(Side note: If you don't know what Jezzball is it came out in 1992 and came packaged with most computers, it was a game where there would be balls bouncing around a square grid, and you had to draw lines across the grid to cut sections away, if a ball hit your line while you were making it you would lose a life, I have no idea if that game inspired this game but I used to play it quite a bit as a kid)

I know I haven't put much time into it, but I have played Cubixx on the PSP for hours, then Cubixx HD on the PS3 for hours. Now it's out on the PC, I can pour even more hours into it.
