Hooray! Console release!

Hello everyone, dear fans of the game Spectrubes! :aqua_cube:

Recently, many copies of the game have been sold, so I appreciate those who bought the game. Thank you!

I think it's time to reach an even larger audience of players. Therefore, now Spectrubes is available is not only on Windows, MacOS and Linux, but also on Xbox One and Wii U!

Now you can buy for 1.99$ the game at the above consoles. Xbox One version has the same functionality except for achievements and leaderboards. Unfortunately, Wii U version is also lost undo function and works not stable.

You can buy the console version on Xbox One right now in Windows Store, in Xbox Creators Collection section. Wii U version is only available as Homebrew, it can be found on the official website.

Thanks for your support! :ghost_cube:

Yours, Silver Sword!

Spectrubes 1.2 Update

Hello everyone, dear Spectrubes fans!

The game has been for about two years. Thanks to everyone who bought it and played it for this period!

It's been a long time since the last update, but now it's time for Spectrubes 1.2! This update contains a very specific thing - support of the Japanese language. For everyone else, there is a more interesting innovation that you asked for - level selection. The details are as follows:

1. Japanese localization
Now the game is translated into one more language! All this is due to my own efforts, since I started learn this wonderful language. For Japanese localization a new font was used. Unfortunately, it’s slightly different from native font of ZX Spectrum computers, but I tried to find the best variation. Of course, there is no support for kanji in localization, since the letters are small, and in early computers kanji support was completely absent. I tried to match the style as closely as possible. If you find errors in the text, don’t be afraid to report it, I will correct them as quickly as possible

2. Level selection
At your requests level selection was realised. Unfortunately, due to the records, you can only select levels n1 (11, 21, etc.). Of course, you can’t immediately select level 91, if you just started the walkthrough. The game checks the save slots for walkthrough of early levels. You can choose level in the submenu "New game" with the left and right arrows, the level number is indicated in parentheses. Try it now!

3. Bug with skip opening screen
An old bug has been fixed, in which if you press Enter during the opening screen, the submenu "New Game" will be selected. Now the opening screen is simply skipped when you press any button, without touching the main menu

Thank you all again for supporting Spectrubes so far! I hope the game will find more fans, since now the game has a 66% discount in honour of the autumn sale. Hurry up!

Full list of changes:
  • Added Japanese translation
  • Added level selection
  • Fixed bug with skip startup screen
Yours, Silver Sword!

About This Game

A new addictive puzzle game from the creators of Big Journey to Home, inspired both by the eighties and the modern games – we present Spectrubes!

Do you remember the times when many had a wonderful machine under the name of ZX Spectrum, or, perhaps, a Commodore 64? Our game will help you remember, and if you haven’t been around for that, it will let you travel back in time to see!

In our game, Spectrubes, you control a cube. But not one – several, and at the same time! The key idea is that they move very differently! One of the cubes may move up, but another one will move down.

But not all cubes in the world of Spectrubes are friendly. Some of them are hostile, and will not let you freely enjoy your life. Avoid them unless you want trouble!

Use your environment and the game mechanic to complete a hundred of different levels! Are you ready for your adventures and trials, for the world of ZX Spectrum and cubes?
