It's time to see if your brain is up to snuff and solve some tough isometric programming puzzles in Kevin Gu's Cube Mayhem. The cube does only what it is programmed to do by the tiles you place along its path towards the exit portal. The game's focus is all about the cube's safe travel and brings the mayhem later so you can get shown the ropes of the different programming tiles and how to use them efficiently. Don't worry though; there is plenty of chaos and brain-bending challenge to make you grind your teeth at a few puzzles for quite some time.
The cube is your friend and key to winning, so left-click with your mouse on the particular programming tile you want from your inventory and place it on any white tile. You can press the "done" button when your tiles are all used up and it will release the cube onto the map. Whether your cube makes it successfully to the end, gets stuck in a loop of teleporters, or plummets off the map, it will follow your path blindly until you stop it or it fails. You can re-edit your tile positioning by left-clicking on a used tile to send it back into your inventory. The limited number of tiles you start with restricts the creative freedoms in your programming, but this constraint produces a degree difficulty and element of fun that attracts most logic puzzle gamers.
Cube Mayhem has a simple premise, but makes you muster up all your problem solving knowledge to utilize each of the various tile pieces effectively in a small level. You wouldn't think that moving a cube around is mentally stimulating, but when thirty minutes pass by for one level, your tune will change. A lot of the time spent on the game grid will be testing out your tiles' location and adjusting when necessary. The twenty two levels of changing difficulty introduce unique, new tiles for a few levels and then throw you into challenge levels to test your new skills out. They will boggle your brain and turn the map into a colorful mess of every tile you have seen up until this point. If you can crunch these puzzle solutions out in one sitting, congratulations! The more casual gamer would rather solve a few and save the puzzle pleasure for another time. Let the sharp graphics and single click interface draw you into a wonderful hexahedron hysteria of a game.
