    Hey...it looks very interesting and creative....hell...it might even be a good game if you give it a chance...and let me remind you...nothing is as boring as going around in a FPS game killing things randomly.

    Cubivore: Survival of the Fittest is certainly one of the more unusual games one will encounter. The purpose is to become King of the Cubivores by assuming as many different mutations as possible by strategically eating the colored slabs of meat off of other Cubivores. Ultimately, this is an unfortunately linear, rather repetitious, but painfully quirky game.

A gamer with a penchant for the unusual will be able to look past Cubivore's short comings, but passive curiosity won't carry through to the end. Expand

  1. It's brief by today's standards -- finishing at 100% won't take a seasoned gamer longer than 15 hours -- but it's so addictive that you're likely to start a new game as soon as you've finished.
  2. The game’s formula is basically this: grow, attack, mate, grow, attack, mate, grow… and, well you get the picture. Sometimes fighting can simply get old after a while. But besides that this game is absolutely amazing.

    Incredibly weird. While I found my time with Cubivore pretty intriguing, I'm betting that the majority of gamers will be left scratching their heads and wondering what the hell they've just witnessed on the screen.
