Description

Cubozoid is a one or two player, shareware, tile/block matching game similar to Zuma and many others.

The object of the game is to achieve a high score and the game play concept is simple. Coloured blocks start filling up the screen from one edge and the player has a block at the other end of the screen and which must be placed so as to form a line of three blocks of the same colour, this causes that line of blocks to disappear and scores points. That's the basic concept, however levels become much more complex as:
  • the blocks don't just appear on one side of the screen, they may appear in the centre or in a corner
  • the player is often able to fire in blocks from more than one side
  • the blocks don't just fill in blank areas in a sequential manner, they often follow maze-like routes as they advance towards the player.
  • Then there are the power-ups, bombs that destroy surrounding blocks, lightning bolts that clear a whole row / column, and ones that speed up or slow down the rate at which the blocks move.
There are six episodes and a total of thirty-six levels in this game, these are played on a world tour map which serves to record progress and the player's current level. Each level is played against an obscured backdrop picture which is gradually revealed as levels within the episode are completed.

This game features two modes of play, the single player 'Linear' mode and the two player or 'Group' mode, two levels of play - an easy untimed mode is available, and progress is saved automatically when the player exits the game.
