Review: CubeWorks is a puzzle game that is going to test both your reflexes and your patients as you try and match 3D cubes together by looking for one with the same pattern as the side you are trying to attach it to. This is a puzzle game that doesn’t hold your hand in any way and it can get too difficult to be worth going on with (or maybe that was my own terrible reflexes). While I enjoyed playing the game and it looks good, I still found myself getting fatigued by the gameplay quite early on. I just think £7.19 might be asking a little too much for this game, but getting it in a sale of just about any kind should see you get your money’s worth.
