Wow! This game is absolutely awesome! I really recommend it. Tried on my iPhone 6 and works like a charm. Can't stop playing it, so many levels, so many new things... absolutely worth it. It reminds me of the beloved Thomas was Alone, is it strange that I fall in love with a square?

This looks adorable!

My question would be what's the overall gameplay besides dealing with the immediate situation?

i.e. Is this mostly just a fun survive game, or is the more to it than that?

Is there an endless mode on the way? The game looks pretty cool.

Seems like people like the look of this game, and are attracted to it, but some may be holding off buying because they don't understand enough about the game.

Bought this game and I'm really impressed with the level of polish, as others already mentioned.
Gameplay wise you start each level with a 1x1 cube.

You float in some sort of space and can navigate around, e.g. towards coins. Other blocks will be shot your way and you need to connect your cube with the ones that are your color. Your cube then fuses the new block and you need to grow your cube to a 9x9 and 16x16 until you meet the level requirement. There are 2 secondary objectives per level as well like turning your cube 360 degrees, getting all coins in a level.

Difficulty increases as more other colored blocks and mines which destroy parts of your cube are shot. All the while you need to make sure new blocks are attached in a cubelike way (and not random so you end up with an 8x2 for instance).

Things stay manageable by fusing special blocks like a coin magnet, a shield, a cannon that zaps enemy blocks,...

You collect a workshop currency that lets you upgrade your special blocks across levels.

On top is a light story explaining why your block wants to achieve more 'blockiness'. It's well done and adds to the atmosphere and polish.

This is coming. It's not in 1.0 just because I wanted to test it a bit better.

It's funny you ask! The prototype for this game was endless. I changed this after the initial play testing, as people preferred something level-based. But an endless mode is certainly in the roadmap.

I have exciting stuff planned for future updates. Right now I'm trying to get as much feedback as possible, so I'd love to hear suggestions for new features and improvements.

Again, thank you!

Cheers,
Pablo
