Not only are puzzle games addicting, but most of the time they’re pretty fun to play. It’s always exciting to find a new game that challenges you and pushes your problem-solving skills to the limit.
UltraBox is an exciting and mind-bending 3D puzzle game for Android.
Developed by Unlimitless, this is one game you have to try if you’re a fan of puzzles.
Concept and Gameplay
The goal of UltraBox is to eliminate all of the colors on the cube by matching three or more of a kind. You’ve probably played match three games in the past, but don’t let that trick you.
Hang in there with UltraBox, this is one game that’s tough to get used to, but once you do, it’s a fun challenge.
I definitely suggest completing the interactive tutorial before jumping into arcade mode or challenge mode. The tutorial takes you through everything you need to know about UltraBox and how to play it.
Challenge mode is fun because you have to complete stages in order to unlock the next, while arcade mode challenges you to reach the highest score possible in a limited number of moves.
I’ll be totally honest by saying that UltraBox is not an easy game to play. Seeing as it’s 3D, it’s tough to wrap your mind around the cube itself, but that’s not a bad thing.
One of the things I really like about the game is the fact that controls are very simple. Simply swipe left or right to rotate the cube horizontally, and swipe up or down to rotate vertically.
UltraBox is a pretty straightforward game that isn’t full of fluff and unnecessary extras. Personally I really like games like this because it means that the focus is primarily on the puzzle experience. Also, it looks like the developers are regularly releasing updates.
One gameplay feature I do want to point out is the fact that matching four or more squares of the same color will make powerful boosts, just like other popular match three games.
UltraBox is available to download from Google Play for free and currently does not have any in-app purchases. The game is completely free to play, which is always a good thing.
Overall, UltraBox provides players with a unique and very challenging 3D puzzle game that will bend the mind and push it to the limit.
It takes a while to get used to the mechanics of the game, but it’s time well spent for those who are looking for a challenging new puzzle game to try.
