Cubed

Play Here!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything!

And guess what, it’s a game! A game that took me way too long to make as I was completing it in 30 minute intervals while on the train to work….

Cubed!

It’s a math game where you roll a cube around to create the correct sequential formula to reach the target value, given an initial value. It introduces each of the four main operators (+, -, x, /) through the levels.

The idea was to make a game that people could play on their mobile, that didn’t need an internet connection, and that happened to be educational. I learned later on that it wouldn’t work too well on mobile in its current state, so if I ever work on it again, I’ll have to take a different approach to it.

 

Inspiration: Endorfun

I used to play this game a ton when I was a kid. No one really knows about it but I remember it came with an old computer we had at home. I liked how relaxing and challenging it was. Listening to the soundtrack now, it’s just weird! But I still like the idea of the game. It was a ton of fun.

 

Problems:

  • Possible layout issues on desktop computers
  • Some UX issues

Most of the problems related to this project come from the fact that I began designing it as a mobile game that did not require an internet connection and then later on realized that this wouldn’t work on mobile. So please excuse any issues you may find!
