The action centers around Fallos, mysterious creatures that resemble humans and have an ability to balance on a playing field of 3-D cubes. First, create a pair of Fallos inside your Wii Remote™ controller by shaking it up and down. Next, determine suitable places for the Fallos to land, then fling them to the selected cube with a swinging motion. After that, the Fallos are on their own. If your placement is sound, the Fallos will remain stable and you'll clear the stage after tossing a required number onto the cubes. But if the weight or locations of Fallos causes the cubes to tilt and sway too much, the Fallos will lose their balance and fall off. Adding to the challenge, you'll find that some cubes have different properties, making tosses tricky and further threatening the stability of the Fallos. Guide Fallos through dozens of single-player stages or invite family and friends to join you in two-player cooperative mode. [Nintendo] Expand

    Puzzles fans rejoice - another high quality product in your favourite genre has arrived on WiIWare for only 1,000 Nintendo Points.
  2. With its unique gameplay, addictive multiplayer, lively characters, and stylishly minimalistic visuals, You, Me & The Cubes is exactly the kind of game what the Wiiware scene needs more of.
  3. A simple, stylish, interesting and definitely original action puzzler. [Dec 2009]
  4. It's addictive, it's quirky and it's infuriatingly hard. A cracking puzzler. [Dec 2009, p.97]
  5. I really like this game, despite the fact that it can get a little repetitive and the Fallos look sort of ugly.
  6. This is the ideal puzzle game to pick up once in a while when you have an hour to spare. The gameplay works like a charm and it keeps you alert and makes you work hard to keep the cubes in balance. At least the game certainly is in balance. A breath of fresh air on WiiWare. Nintendo shows how it’s done.
  7. At a lower price point, this underachieving might be tolerable, but for 1000 Nintendo Points we'd hope for something that had more than a good idea and abundant promise to its name.

    Gameplay relies more on ridiculous luck than strategy or skill. Use your Wii Points for Tetris Party or Bomberman Blast instead.
