App description: Cubiques 2 is the sequel of our acclaimed indie game "Cubiques". In this new sequel multiple cubes invade this simplistic but very challenging world. Every movement must be well thought out since each movement can affect multiple cubes in the environment.

"Sometimes things don't have to be complicated to be a good puzzler, and Cubiques looks like it might use the right side of minimalism."
Pocket Gamer

"If you enjoy minimalist puzzle games on your phone, you'll probably enjoy Cubiques. The art style goes for a Monument Valley kind of aesthetic."

I had sent a PM to the developer earlier to alert the developer in private of the same game crash issue. But since this issue is now posted publicly on the forum, I can also confirm publicly that the game currently does crashes on my devices running iOS 8 and iOS 9.

All thanks for the information. Version 1.0.1 fixes the issues with crashing in older versions of iOS.

Dilmer, I can confirm that 1.0.1 now runs on iOS 8 and iOS 9. Nicely done with the quick fix!

One small bit of player stats annoys me. The level menu selector shows the number of "times" the level has been "tried". However, this statistic is bugged. Even though the player may choose to exit the game after finishing a particular level, the "next" level is automatically tagged to have already been tried one time despite the fact the player has never made a move. Likewise, if the game unloads by iOS's memory management while it is idling in the background, the level is tagged to have already been tried one time when the player restarts the app to continue the game. Instead, the game should only register that a level is played if the player has made a move. This was also true for the original Cubiques.

Similarly, for a pure puzzle game, a timer to record speed of level completion is rather extraneous since the player can simply memorize the moves ahead and quickly replay them for a time trial.

Lastly, my device gets quite hot when running the game. Somewhat unexpected as I don't expect the game to ramp up the processor so much. How taxing is the game's rendering calls? This correlates with extremely fast battery drain while the game is active. Such should not be the case.
