    Introduction:
    Cube Runner is one of the first games on the iPhone App store that I can remember.
    It is a fairly simple game that anyone can get the hang of.
    Just simply rotate the iPhone/iPod Touch. :]​

    Basic Game-play Video:

    The Basics:
    Cube Runner is a simple game that all you have to do is rotate the iPhone or iPod Touch in the direction you want the arrow to go.
    Also the option to play in Portrait or Landscape mode making it very user friendly and simple for anyone to pick-up and play.

    Main Menu/Config Menu:

    From the main menu you are given the options to.
    • Start a new game
    • Select A New Level Pack
    • And the Config menu with options inside.

    Starting a new game is self explanitory - Begin a new game with the level pack you selected.

    Level Packs go from easy to medium to hard.
    As you go up the difficulty chain more blocks are added and the speed that the arrow goes is increased.

    The Config menu includes:
    • Instructions to play the game
    • A option to rotate the game from portrait to landscape and vice versa
    • A setting tab with options to play with Calibration, Sounds & Music, and To turn on Developer Mode on or off.
    • An option to clear your high score
    • An option to Mange your Level packs
    • And credits of the game.

    Gameplay:
    The point of the Cube Runner is to rotate your iPhone/iPod Touch in any direction to avoid the block and obstacles that are in your path.
    This simple and genus method of controls suit the game perfectly that makes it a great pick up and play game.

    Afterward, if you've gotten board of the stock 3 levels there is a bonus option to import levels via URL from the internet.
    The only downside is that you need a link to download these levels that the game isn't bundled with.
    Making it sometimes to hard to find a new levels, though this is not a major problem since the 3 set level will keep you entertained a long time.

    Summary And Overall:
    Cube runner is my overall favorite App Store game and actually the first one that I played.
    It should be easy for any new user to pick up the game and play effortlessly keeping them hooked for hours.
    Oh, here is a link for more levels. :]

    Pros:
    • Simple Game play
    • Option to switch between Portrait and Landscape
    • Three levels making it easy for anyone from 5 to 55+ to play.
    • One of the first games in the App Store.

    Cons:
    • No in-app downloadable level shop.
    • Author does not update the app anymore.
