App description: - Gamezebo 4/5:
"Besides its brilliantly challenging, but never too difficult puzzles, the entire experience is simultaneously soothing and uneasy. The mystery of Kyubos imprisonment and the small bits of info received along the way, set against atmospheric piano tones, are eerily enticing."

- Arcade Sushi 7/10:
"In perhaps its strangest bit of experimentation, Kyubo has pulled off something that sets itself apart from every other mobile game out there now."

- 148Apps 4/5:
"Its a clever puzzle platformer in need of a little tweaking, but whats already there is really neat."

Hmmm, this could be pretty cool. I'm keeping an eye on it.

Looks like a nice fix for my puzzle itch.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Guys! Guys! You NEED to listen! This game Kyubo was totally overlooked and missed last Wednesday, with all the other great releases! But now I finally had some time to check it, and WHOOPS, 1.5 hours just went by without notice.

Well, this game is a really really really good puzzler - I'd even say that this is a puzzle platformer- with a ton of polish, excellent controls and some fresh puzzle mechanics!I have seen absolutely no IAP and there's a lot of content for just a buck. The animations and ragdoll physics are upper class. There's also a story while you run, jump and puzzle yourself through the riddle rooms. And every few levels, there's something new. Has good music, too, and a mysterious theme. This game runs on the Unity engine, and the engine has been used right. Game runs smooth like butter.

So, the Appstore description sounds interesting for you, damn, give it a try!
You can thank me later.

Listen to Vovin, peeps. Really cool game, difficulty ramps up quite early (that's a good thing!), iPad retina...the whole nine yards. Problem is, text on iPhone is tiiiiiiiiiiiiny, but it's not really that much of a factor. Beautiful on iPad though...like I said, great stuff. Oh, and yeah...Vovin's right...no IAPs! It definitely plays much more like a hardcore platformer than a puzzle game, even though it really is a puzzler at heart.

Thank you guys for the nice feedback, is really great to hear how much you're liking and enjoying the game!
It's also cool to hear that you share our vision on how games should be sold, full price to get all the content the game can provide you. No ads, no IAPs.

Stay tuned, we are working on a very cool update that is coming out by the end of this month!
