This physics-based action puzzle game is quirky but fun.
You, Me & the Cubes is an odd little game involving cubes floating in space and people who are thrown onto the cubes. If they are not centered properly, the cube will tilt and the people will fall off of the surface. Each stage has a target number of individuals who must affix themselves onto a surface before the stage is cleared. Once a stage is cleared, the entire block structure rotates and additional blocks emerge, creating more complex surfaces.
There are several levels, each with several stages. The first level includes standard blocks that act as a normal surface. As the levels increase, the block behavior becomes more difficult. For example, there are blocks that limit the number of people that it can hold on a surface. Other blocks act as trampolines or have other physical effects. Each stage is timed, and higher levels also have lower times, leading to increasingly frantic gameplay.
The control is also a bit strange. Players begin by shaking the Remote until an activation indicator lights up. Players then use the Remote to point to the target locations for two characters to be launched (male and female) and press A for each. Finally, the Remote must be swung to launch the characters to the block surface. B is used to rotate the field. Depending on their location, the characters may be stable or unstable on the surface. Players can try to correct a bad situation by launching characters quickly, or they can take their time to better position the next set of characters (given enough time).
The presentation is simple but sleek and electronic, and uses simple physical rules well. There is a single player mode as well as a multiplayer challenge. Though the concept is simple, I could see the challenge as compelling and a good example of a quick pick-up-and-play WiiWare game.
