About This Game

The Ancient Art of Staying Alive is a highly customisable tea-break arcade game in which you play Hubert McCubert, a small blue cube looking for a quiet life who for some reason (*bonus feature* - make up your own reason!) attracts the attention of the evil Crimson Cube Posse. Using his wits, cunning, agility and perhaps the odd teleporter or bomb, Hubert must stay alive while facing wave after wave of enemies all homing in on him at once...

Based on the old "Daleks" game, TAAOSA turns the concept into an arcade game. Unashamedly retro in every aspect, if you want amazing visuals then look elsewhere, but if you want a simple, challenging game that's randomised every time you play it, you might just find this to be your cup of tea.


- 20 levels
- 5 game speeds
- (Challenge Mode (play through all levels in a single session)
- Boss levels (every 5th level in Challenge Mode)

- Make the game easier with Teleports, Bombs and Obstacles - but be aware that these will affect your score...
