Summary

Cube Blast Match is a lovely little game. You immediately fall in love with the cartoon visuals, the way the jelly cubes move, wobble as you rotate and match em up. The controls whilst only on a d-pad, are very easy to pick up. I love how accessible and fun the game is to play. It does start off slow, the games are so short it’s frustrating but that passes as it gets a bit more in-depth. Kinda wish it had the different game types sectioned off and presented as stand-alone modes so you can devour your favorite style but also it was not to be. Cube Blast Match should not be missed, it’s an excellent example of snack-size puzzling.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
