With the freezing temperatures hitting the Northeast, nothing like playing an arcade game to keeps you on your toes and distracted from the weather. Ice Cubes is the latest game to hit the store by Marco Gallo, who previously kept us glued to our devices with Nostalgia. This time, he has taken his coding talents and created a simple, yet quite addicting, stacking game to occupy us during these long, cold days and nights. Marco's games are always enjoyable and this one is no exception.
When I say the object of the game involves stacking that is the gist entirely. Your goal is to stack the penguins on the tiny iceberg as high as you can. When you reach a particular score, new animals are unlocked to stack, but getting there is the difficult part. You may also earn new characters by liking their Facebook page or rating the game. Not only does it take skill but a good eye as well to be able to stack these pieces on such a small platform as high as you can.
There are different methods to achieve this and it all depends on what works best for you. You could stack them on top of one another in a tower but then the weight might have it come crashing down. There is also what I do which is try to place two cubes on the platform side by side and then stack up from there either straight up or in a pyramid style. Whichever method gets you the highest points is key. In case you were wondering how to play, the answer is quite simple. All you have to do, is tap the screen to drop or stack the cube.
- Stack to the top challenge, or endless play!
- Show off your skills to your Facebook Friends!
- Simply tap the screen, couldn't be easier to play!
- Smooth effects, Shiny high quality graphics!
- Addictive gameplay!
No matter what age you are, this is sure to be a cute and entertaining game to play. I must stress again the importance of keeping your eye on the board as sometimes pieces bounce or sway depending on how they are stacked. Right now my high score is 15. Think you can beat that?
