  • Summary: In Trioncube, the player must embark on a journey across eight planets into the depths of space, as the captain of the mighty space ship Penko, to rescue the princess from the grasp of Hell Metal. Players reach this goal by creating a Trioncube – a series of 3x3 blocks, which start a chain reaction that refuels the space ship. Try to create as big a chain as you can before time runs out and the Trioncube is broken. The bigger the chain you make, the farther distance your ship travels. Featuring four gameplay modes (Arcade, Story, Endless and Vs) Trioncube will provide endless fun for even the most seasoned puzzler. Unlike your typical puzzler where players try to quickly erase as many blocks as possible, Trioncube will have players at the edge of their seats as they try to create the ultimate 3x3 chain in a new type of thrilling puzzle experience. As they progress through the game, players will have to use different strategies to deal with new shapes in order to create the ultimate chain. Players will be able to collect coins as they create the Trioncube chain and purchase various unique Effects and Arts - like sushi rolls, dogs and tambourines jumping out of the Trioncube – as they travel the galaxy in their Penko.

  1. Trioncube is a great puzzle game, if your into that sort of thing - you'll be hooked like I was. What it lacks in depth it makes up for in sheer quanity of game here.
  2. Trioncube is a fun and quirky little puzzle game that would have worked just as well on the GBA.
  3. Hardcore puzzle fans will be disappointed with Trioncube's lack of depth. But if all you're looking for is a quick, pick-up-and-play puzzle experience here and there, it's still worth the budget price.
  4. 55
    It's a game that's chock full of instant gratification but not much else. The design's all about exploiting the combo system, but it never really offers much in the way of a challenge.
  5. Without the challenge and cruelty that can make a classic, the results here are likeable, confident, and nowhere near essential. [Mar 2007, p.86]
  6. A very short-term diversion, Trioncube is for rare puzzle game fans who don't crave a challenge.
  7. Trioncube just doesn’t have the gameplay to back up a rather soulful, fun, charming and bizarre cast of characters.
