Art Style: KUBOS (DSiWare)

Game Profile

The Art Style series brings you unique, simple-to-play games with striking visuals and immersive sound.

In KUBOS your aim is to climb a tower of cubes which becomes higher as new cubes drop from above. Walk across the cubes to score points, avoiding being crushed by the falling cubes; but keep climbing or you’ll fall when the lower cubes disappear.

In TEN FLOORS mode, try to reach the 10th floor while scoring as many points as possible. In TOWER mode, simply climb as high as you can. Quickly defuse bomb cubes before they blow a hole in your tower, and remove obstructing cubes with a gentle push or a huge Cube Blast!

Another fiendishly addictive Art Style puzzler joins the DSiWare library.

Art Style: KUBOS is the fifth game in the popular Art Style series to hit the DSiWare service. Series developers SKIP Tokyo have once again built a game around a creative and abstract puzzle concept; they really seem to have a knack of making simple games...

The Virtual Console shows signs of life.

The past two North American Wii/DSi updates had no new Virtual Console games, but thankfully, there is one this week. It's accompanied by two WiiWare games and the final DSiWare Art Style game (For now). On WiiWare, today brings us the previously announced Overturn. Perhaps taking a bit of inspiration from...

No love for the Virtual Console this week. Boooooooo!

Things were looking good for a short while - The VC seemed to be getting new games every week as of a month or so ago. But two weeks ago, and now again this week, there's not a single new VC game in sight - Please don't tell us Nintendo of Europe is going back to alternating VC and WiiWare weeks!...

Well, I've been impressed with every Art Style game released to date (though I found NEMREM to be somewhat perplexing, even for my 120+ I.Q. mind), and KUBOS looks just as fun!

I'll take one please Nintendo!

Gives 500 DSi Points

This game kinda reminds me of that game Echochrome for PS3 and PQ for PSP.

It is speculated to come out on July 13 to DSiWare in North America.



Kenji510 said:

Kenji510 said:

We are waiting and really want this game!

"holds up some signs and says 'Release KuBos/Bring Out KuBos'"

Funny how Kubos, which looks to be one of the best in the Art Style series is released last. I wish Nintendo didn't believe in saving the "Best for last"



PowerGlitch said:

When I saw this game the first time, I was happy that a game like this will be on DSiWare. It looks REALLY FUN. From all the games of the Art Style series, I think Kubos is the best. I hope it will be released in Nord America soon!

KUBOS is out today in the US as Art Style:precipice. Hooray! (But still no Flipnote Studio...)



lockd said:

i got this game today. its my 2nd art style game. i give it 8/10 because of the lack of features.. but its really fun!



winter123 said:

man i thought these were cool at first but its just like one new spinoff of the previous one every week. What am i supposed to sit here all week and play it just in time for the next one to come and its barely different? And how can these all possibly get 8/10????



WindJammer006 said:

This game is awesome! Got it at 12:01, right after it came out. Challenging but still fun. Now I have all Art Style but Aquia

I played the game (on my sister's dsi) and found it to be really addicting and challenging with the tower mode. The relax mode is kind of a waste though. -written on my dsi

This has got to be my favorite DS game of all time. I've probably put hundreds of hours into it in the past few years just trying to beat my own high score, which is saying a lot because a full play-through to the 10th floor only takes about four and a half minutes. My only goal in life is to break 10 million points... I'm absolutely convinced that it's possible, but my current record is still only 7,234,980 points.
