Indie fans, get ready to meet Cubetractor; a neo-retroesque action-strategy-puzzle hybrid where you defeat enemies through an unconventional cube-pulling, turret-buildling mechanic. Cubetractor won IGF China award for Best Game, and you can find a 15 minutes walkthrough below.
In Cubetractor, players can pull 2 cubes together you can build turrets and other structures. There are 3 different types of cubes you’ll encounter, and 6 different structure types to unlock, each with their own unique strategic value as you progress through the game.
You take the role of Endroi, a menacingly happy-go-lucky quadrubot as he strives to master the art of Cubetracting – the art of attracting Cubes.
Cubetractor sports some really lovely retro visuals and audio, and is pleasing to the eye. There aren’t many options to tweak and the control scheme is pretty basic. But then again, we’re talking about a puzzle title here, so that is to be expected.
Cubetractor left us with happy memories and is available on Steam (priced at only 9,99€). The game comes with 40+ maps and was created by two people.
There is nothing more to add than it is a fun and addictive indie title. Cubetractor will hook you up with its retro aesthetics. It’s concept is interesting and at the later levels it gets pretty hectic.
