    The core concept is immediately engaging, but the game doesn't restrict itself to just the limits of its original idea -- it expands upon the initial gameplay of just placing your little pseudo-humans in balanced positions on floating cubes, and introduces depth-building additional elements like enemies, surfaces with altered properties and co-operative play.
  3. You, Me and The Cubes offers, like every good puzzle game, a simple and addictive experience, attractive by itself, without many complications.
  4. 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.
  5. A simple, stylish, interesting and definitely original action puzzler. [Dec 2009]
  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. Its design is an exercise in perfect, effective simplicity, and with only a few tweaks it would have slotted perfectly into the Art Style series. It's clean, it's simple, and it's understated in the best kind of way.
  8. It's addictive, it's quirky and it's infuriatingly hard. A cracking puzzler. [Dec 2009, p.97]
  9. I really like this game, despite the fact that it can get a little repetitive and the Fallos look sort of ugly.
  10. You, Me & The Cubes is an incredible addictive first-party puzzle that was shown for the first time on London, causing a big impression trough the fans. Now it has proven his quality, dealing with some minor glitches that won't affect the game quality. Being a WiiWare development, it's one of the most interesting puzzle titles that we've tested this year.
  11. Just like every good puzzle should be, You Me and the Cubes is based on a simple, yet brilliant concept. There are some flaws, especially regarding the controls and the repetitive gameplay, but it's however a pleasure to play in short sessions.
  12. An original puzzle game hits Nintendo Wiiware service.

    As difficult as it all sounds, You, Me, and the Cubes is actually one of the few games I can play that actually relaxes me.
  14. 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.
  15. For some, the act of simply throwing little computer people around will remain its most compelling feature. [Dec 2009, p.128]
  16. A well-executed, cleverly designed puzzle game. It won't last you particularly long - while the latter stages are fiendishly difficult, the game isn't infinitely replayable like Tetris, for example.
