    I have just recently bought Cubivore, and it is epic! It's a very original, but strange game. Fun none the less! And i'll tell you... This is better then a boring, fps, where you just kill a bunch of people! Talk about stupid and boring.

    It's truly sad that such an amazing game is so underground and unloved. It's kind of ironic how the ones that don't sell much end up being some of the best.

    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

    As time goes on it seems that the video game market continues to be filled with remakes and ripoffs. Because of this, it seems truly special when something crazy unique comes along. Enter Cubivore! The game plays like some strange survival game with RPG elements. You play a cube whose dream is to become the top predator by eating just about everything that moves.

As you eat, you gain limbs and with different colored limbs comes different combinations. The goal being to play through the game until you've got 100 different combinations. Essentially its a simple game but its given more depth through the games fascinating personality. Every night, your cubivore writes in its diary (it sounds cheesier than it actually is) and the game uses this to comment on the idea of competition and killing things to live. Over all, its a one of a kind experience that really should be shared with modern audiences. Collapse

    I really like this game's music and request that someone make mp3 files of all the music.

    Fun, light-hearted and addicting! Its a welcome change from all of these first-person kill-a-thons that are so popular nowadays.

    This is a very strange, creative, and... different game. If you give it a chance, it may be the game you've been looking for!

    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.

    Talk about disturbing who wants to poop and then mate with a cube when you can be killing people on TimeSplitters 2?

  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.
