Depot Games: RotoCube
#5 during January 2009
Links: Web Site
Developers: Torbjörn Josefsson
RotoCube is a very simple but pretty hard puzzle game. It's largely similar to Cubulus on the Amiga, but with (literally) a twist.
Rotate and spin to complete all cubes, and get to the next level!
Levels are generated by disordering the cube by making a certain number of random moves - you can ALWAYS complete a level with the same number of moves as that of the level :)
Use cursor keys (left/right) to undo / redo moves, and ESC to quit game
How far can you reach?

- Some kind of scoring system/ highscores list would be nice, maybe. I'm too dumb to make it very far, but the game was fun while my IQ sufficed.
- I have a lot of fun with this game. It's simple and difficult at the same time. The only thing I miss is a some kind of score for a ranking.
- Fantastic! From a development point of view, it's good to see such a self-contained unit -- it's very "finished", which is a rare sign of judgement and dedication. On top of that, it's fun to play too (if you're a maths/Rubik cube fan) -- just what I was looking for when browsing the depot.
