Review:Curiosity- All About The Cube

Curiosity otherwise known as the cube game by that Peter Molyneux guy. The game has been done as an experiment and many more are due to come. 22 in total. Anyway the game is very simple, connect to the servers and smash blocks with 1000s of other players from all over the world. Simples or is it?…….

The game requires you to connect to the servers and then simply smash blocks by tapping the screen. Here lies the first problem. Connecting to the servers, they are better than the first 24 hours of release but even now you still have huge connection issues, sometimes you will connect, sometimes you wont. The game is free to download but there are chargeable items in shop to smash more blocks quicker. Smashing a load of blocks in succession builds up a multiplier while clearing the screen gives you a clear screen bonus. These bonuses and block bashing reward you with coins that you can use for other bonuses like bombs to help aid you smash multiple blocks.


The game is simple, the idea is simple, be the person that smashes the final block and see what the cube contains. Mystery surrounds the true identity of the prize and first boot up requires you to agree to the strict terms and conditions. It just says its up to you if you want to disclose the prize and you can do what you wish with the truth, everything except sell it for cash monies. It will be interesting to see what the prize is after all this hype by the gift of the gab Molyneux. I reckon it could just be a video of Molyneux saying thanks for playing you won! or a picture of a cat or something.


In summary if you want a game thats free and requires an online game that sometimes works, sometimes doesnt then this is for you. Or to put it another way, if you want to just aimlessly smash things on screen for hours just to see your work disappear in a server lag glitch fest then this is the game for you. It could be a good idea in theory but how long will everyone play it for? if the prize is crap how will that sit in peoples minds for future games or should I say experiments? Oh and also worth noting there is a facebook button that is placed in such a crap place you will accidentally trigger it and cause a long load for Facebook connection that will then drive you nuts as you quit it and realise the youve quit the whole game as well. Get back to the menu and reload you bitch should be the warning screen.

Thats the end of this in depth know everything review. You are now armed with the knowledge to make an informed desicion on this curious game.(see what I did there? yeah I am THAT funny) But in all seriousness its free on ios and Android so you may aswel give it a shot. Remember Curiosity killed the cat or in this case Curiosity may well kill you! I kid but you have been warned.

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!
