KJumpingCube is a puzzle/strategy game played on a squared board. A board is filled with cubes and the goal is to recolor all of them to win the game. Each cube has a certain amount of stones laying on it giving it a numerical value. Starting the game, the board is filled with neutral colored cubes of value 1. Clicking on a neutral field transforms this cube to the players color and gives it value 2. Each turn, one own or neutral cube can be selected. Choosing an own stone increases it's number. If a cube has a higher value than neighbors in horizontal or vertical way, the cube unleashes one point to all neighbors (keeping one on it's own), recoloring to the players color and adding one to their value. This can lead to huge cascades as for each cube an stone is added another check is done and it may spread too.
The game can be played on board sized 3x3 up to 15x15, either with two human players or with computer players with five different strength levels and two alternative strategies. The game can provide hints about good spots to select cubes. Moves may be taken back with an undo function and games can be saved and stored.
