Here is an evolving list of specifications for Cubemen, and we are adding new content and features regularly as free updates!
Defense is a single player, typical Tower Defense gameplay mode where you need to protect your base from incoming enemies. You start with 10 lives and when all of your lives are lost, it’s game over.
You get packages that drop onto the level during gameplay that give you special abilities. You need to collect these packages to be able to us them and you only have 3 package slots available at any time, so if the slots are full you loose the next package, so you are encouraged to use them often to keep at least one slot free.
Package abilities currently include Healing all your troops, freezing all enemies (slows them down a % inc fire rate) and Death (removing % of health from each enemy on the board).
There are also currently 6 game modes for each Defense Level:
- Classic (Normal gameplay – 20 waves)
- Limited Players (you can’t have more than 6 men on the level at once)
- Limited Cubes (You start with 300 Cubes and don’t earn any more)
- Just Rockets (You can only purchase Ricky Rocket men and the enemy only spawns Crossbow men)
- Endless (Classic mode with endless waves)
- Sudden Death (Classic mode butt you only start with one life)
Skirmish is a multi-player one-on-one experience, either against the computer or another online player anywhere in the world. Skirmish games take place in specific levels that are setup for ideal one-on-one action.
In Skirmish mode, both teams have auto-spawned Cubemen that leave your base and try to make their way to your opponents base. Both teams also have player controlled Cubemen you buy just like in Defense mode, that you can place on limited shared locations around the board.
Use your player controlled Cubemen to fight your opponents player controlled Cubemen or to fight the incoming auto-spawning Cubemen that are going after your base…. oh no, what to do! It’s a hard choice! We have made Cubemen Skirmish a fast paced, out of control experience, NOT recommended for those with heart conditions!
Mayhem is a TWO to SIX player online multi-player experience, either against AI bots, other humans or a mix of both. Play individual games or play in Teams (Co Op) . Mayhem games take place in specific levels that are setup for SIX way action.
Be warned, we called the mode Mayhem for a reason. Games are fast & crazy.. it’s pure Mayhem!
New Level Editor
Cubemen (as of version 1.2) nor comes with an integrated Level Editor that allows you to make levels for any game mode and play them and share the with the rest of the Cubemen community. The community has built over 200 public levels and 300 private levels in the first 4 days of the Level Editor going live.
That’s more levels than you can poke a cube at!
Achievements and Medals
Each Defense level you play, segregated by the possible game play modes, gets awarded Medals based on how well you did during the game. Medals range from Bronze, all the way up to Platinum.
We have also included an extensive list of Achievements to earn during gameplay and we notify you in game when one has been earned and then a full summary at the end of the game that also shows you what Achievements and Medal you have earned that session.
You can select from a range of custom colours and skins to make your Cubemen as unique as you are! We will be adding more skins in future updates.
