It looks similar to Boom Blox in the screenshots.

It could be interesting.

It's nothing like Boom Blox, but it does look nice!

I for one heartily endorse the use of lolcats in every news story at Nintendo Life!

Lolcats: making the internet a more fun an interesting place!

It's been listed on the Nintendo Channel for quite a while already so it's not a surprise but still nice.

Watched the video. Looks pretty impressive. Looks like a mix of Art Style Cubello and Mercury.

Two Tribes are the developer of Toki Tori, no?



Golgo said:

Just finished Toki Tori only last night! (Forty 'normal' levels, anyway, not counting the hard ones - normal were hard enough!) Amazing game. If this is anywhere near as ingenious it'll be a must have.

Let us know if you have any last minute questions guys! We'll be lurking on this page.



TKOWL said:

congrats, youve just payed 6 bucks on a 1 dollar toy thats portable

@ryanknight717: From my experience, a decent Rubik's cube will cost you at least ten dollars. You spend anything less and you probably bought a cheaply assembled knock-off.

Not to mention, the actual Rubik's cube is included as a bonus, as says the press release. The main attraction is that puzzle mode. At only Six dollars, you've got a purchase right here, Two Tribes!

Some crazy kid at school is trying his best at a 7x7 cube. He solved the normal one in 10 seconds.

I could never finish a cube. Those things drive me insane. Pass.



Sean_Aaron said:

I saw some guy solve a rubik's cube one-handed in less than three minutes on Rude Tube...amazing. The only way I could beat it was to break it apart and reassemble it -- is that option in the virtual cube part of the game?



Alfred_ENG said:

This looks fantastic. Online leaderboards. Tournaments with prizes. I will download it tonight, the second it hits the shop.



Alfred_ENG said:

I got it. Been playing 1 hour 40 minutes. It's more than just a Rubik's cube game. I love it. I think it will get good reviews. I can hear them saying its too hard. So that might put off some non puzzle fans. Hello Collin on the leaderboards.

If your thinking about buying this do so. It will give your brain a workout.

Hello Collo, I am enjoying it. Thank you for making it. I hope it does well sales wise. You put alot in this game.
