I’m Ross and I work as a Games Tester for Laughing Jackal. Laughing Jackal are the developer of classic PSN minis such as Duael Invaders, Ace Armstrong vs. the Alien Scumbags, Vibes, the forthcoming OMG-Z and, of course, Cubixx.
Today I’m here to talk to you about Cubixx HD the sequel to Cubixx coming soon exclusively to PlayStation 3. Cubixx HD is a modern-day take on classic area capture games such as Qix, but with an awesome twist: Instead of a 2D game field, Cubixx HD expands this addictive game concept across all six sides of a cube. That’s six times the danger and six times the fun.
Following on from the success of Cubixx we’ve added more; lots more, in fact. Cubixx HD now features 50 levels of Arcade action playable in both single player and 7 player Co-Op. All these levels are also playable in Time Attack, Score Attack and Line Attack modes, with up to 7 players competing at once and featuring over 150 online leaderboards.
That’s not all! There are also 50 super-addictive Challenges, plus – for the more competitive among you – the mayhem of Deathmatch mode, again for up to 7 players.
Cubixx HD also features a whole new cast of enemies. Aside form the returning Cubixx and Line Chasers there are the villainous Homers who will chase after you and slow you down, Asteroids who rain down death and destruction upon you and the Black Hole which sucks everything towards it.
As you can see, I’m a massive fan of Cubixx HD but obviously I’m going to be a bit biased seeing as I worked on this fantastic game, so how does this little quote from Official PlayStation Magazine UK’s 8 out of 10 review for Cubixx HD sound?
“The controls are smooth, the soundtrack is brilliantly pitched, and not since we had a post-op morphine pump has anything screamed ‘just one more go’ louder. It’s adamantium-boulder tough at times, but there’s never anyone to blame for failure but yourself. And for the stubborn among us, that’s the killer.”
So, grab on to your Cubot and join us for the amazing arcade action of Cubixx HD.
