Developed by advergamesters supreme B-Reel, Cube: A Google Maps Experiment transforms locales across the globe into levels inspired by those maze toys where you must roll a tiny metal ball through a labyrinth, all while highlighting features of Google Maps. A little ephemeral in gameplay, but very, very pretty, Cube is smart futuristic fun.

I got bored after two levels. That said, it is remarkably beautiful and pleasant sounding. And just neat.

Won't work for firefox either and I have the latest updates. Bummer.

Ironically, the second level just reminded me of some... uh... gaps in Google Maps' technology. It's true that it's safe to bike from the ballpark to Coit Tower to... a random tree in Hayes Valley (?) but it also involves some of the most death-defying hills in the city getting in your way. Lacking a topographical overlay, its SF walking suggestions are often brutal.

I have the WebGL plugin, and that test page works fine. The game loads, and I can see the instructions - but the actual playfield never does, and is only a black screen.

The irony is, I'm trying to play this in the most up-to-date version of Chrome! If this can't play it, what can?

I don't know why you're having any issues with it, the latest version of Chrome on both Mac OS X and Windows 7 runs the game without any issues. You can try playing the game from here instead.
