Lively Cubes for Nokia N8

Lively Cubes Nokia N8 review

Lively Cubes, what on earth is that? Well, it’s a game of funny and adorable characters for the Nokia N8 that need your assistance. The little fellows have been separated from their friends and been placed in a hazardous environment of a dangerous maze. The plan? To get them out of there and bring them home to their fellow Cubes.


The funny and adorable characters of Lively Cubes need your help. They have been separated from each other and have been placed in dangerous mazes. You need to get them together and bring them home for the sake of their own kind – their dwindling numbers need your help.

First off, the main menu has several options, to start a new game, continue with your current progress and also to check your game statistics and you progress and conquer the game (that’s assuming you don’t suck). As you start a new game, you will be prompted whether you would like to practice by using the special training level, either that or jump right into the action – it’s probably safe to say the training level should be used for first-timers.

The aim of Lively Cubes for the Nokia N8 is to make all of the cubes disappear (yes, you’re still saving them, kinda). To make them vanish, you will need to touch two of more Cubes of the same colour side-by-side. It’s worth noting, however, that this does not apply to a set of ‘static’ cubes. Each colour group are a social group so leaving one Cube out of the action is not an option.

The basic controls of the game are, as stated, pretty basic and simple – you will master them in no time at all. You can touch a Cube and it will move sideways – though you cannot move a Cube upwards and when falling, gravity will take care of the Cubes plight.

Moving your way through the maze is no easy task at all, as you have many different obstacles and enemies that will destroy your Cube. You need to time your movements with precision in order to survive – lasers are probably your biggest and most annoying (at least it is ours) feat to master.

If you want to move your Cube upwards, you will be able to use a crane at times – this will pickup your cube and move it to a location, you can activate it by moving one of your Cubes onto the designated button, which then makes your crane operable.

So, now that you know a few of the rules and procedures, you will need to use your brain to overcome the various dangers. Plan your moves, make sure that your cubes disappear – this game is quite challenging as we found out ourselves, but it is also very highly addictive and, most of all, fun and pleasurable to play.

If you download the game and play it, let us know what you think – we really enjoyed it.
