Open world RPG inspired by Zelda and Minecraft
It’s Cool to be Square
Forget the smooth graphics you know and love, Cube World is all about squares. This game takes a bold step away from familiar gaming concepts to try and offer something really new and different. Read on to discover if the game manages to hit home.
This huge open world features graphics that are definitely more than a little bit reminiscent of LEGO. However, unlike LEGO, Cube World really packs a punch and gamers are given lots of cool weapons to fire at just about anything that comes their way as well as a wide range of different types of missions to go on.
The aim objectives of the game are fighting and exploring and both features are served up in large doses. Gamers will start the game by creating their own unique character to play with and there are lots of options to choose from including race, gender and even battle preference. Players who have enjoyed this part of the game can then get busy creating a whole cast of other characters that will populate their world and help to make it come to life right before their very eyes.
The first main objective is finding your way around the maze of blocks, and this can be rather tricky at first. Players collect objects along the way such as wood and flowers that they fashion into various different tools as well as use to create special potions, armour and much more.
While the graphics are very cool once you get used to the style, the sound effects can be very monotonous and may even may players cringe from time to time. fortunately, the solution to this minor flaw is pretty easy to fix. Simply turn off the game sound effects and crank up your favourite tunes to give Cube World a cool soundtrack of your own choosing.
Cube World comes with a steep learning curve and many players may find that it is simply too difficult. However, it is worth taking the time and trouble to push on through and meet the challenges face on. After you have gotten to grips with the game things do get a bit easier and it is not too long before Cube World becomes a lot of fun.
