Its name makes it sound like a second-rate space opera, and indeed, Namco Bandai's newest puzzler does have an amusingly cheesy space theme that would be at home in a Sci-Fi channel B-movie. But while a bad popcorn flick can still be a satisfying romp,...

Cutesy art and lots of unlockables do not a good puzzler make.

To this very day it is in my opinion that the greatest game ever is Tetris. No other game offers the simplicity yet challenging nature that Tetris offers. Trioncube makes ...

What it comes down to in my opinion, whether it’s fair or not you can decide on your own, is how does this game compare to the legendary Tetris; King of all falling block games? It’s not bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. If you’re looking for an...

Ever since the original Game Boy launched with Tetris, handheld systems have been bastions of puzzle games. Indeed, even on the PSP, one of the most heralded games on the system has been Lumines. Neither is the DS any exception to this rule. Already...

What then is the conclusion? Trioncube is a nice game. It does a lot of things very well, and for those who are interested in games like this, it can potentially last a significant amount of time. Only the fact that there are plenty of other good...

So, falling block puzzle games. They're all the same, right? Make shapes with different blocks in order to clear them out, with the game ending when you run out of space? Well, that's what I thought, at least, before playing Trioncube.

It's a shame that the game lacks a compelling reason to play it - if the core gameplay was just a bit more challenging, it could easily be a good game. However, as it is, it's just far too easy to make you want to play it for any length of time.

Where's the puzzle?

Your reward for all these combos, like in the greedy capitalist world you may play games to escape, are coins. And coins are another incentive to play on. The more coins you get, the more Effects and Arts (or skins, icons and audio to you and me) you...

Product Specifications

In Trioncube, the player must embark on a journey across eight planets into the depths of space, as the captain of the mighty space ship Penko, to rescue the princess from the grasp of Hell Metal. Players reach this goal by creating a Trioncube - a series of 3x3 blocks, which start a chain reaction that refuels the space ship. Try to create as big a chain as you can before time runs out and the Trioncube is broken. The bigger the chain you make, the farther distance your ship travels. Featuring four gameplay modes (Arcade, Story, Endless and Vs) Trioncube will provide endless fun for even the most seasoned puzzler. Unlike typical puzzler where players try to quickly erase as many blocks as possible, Trioncube will have players at the edge of their seats as they try to create the ultimate 3x3 chain in a new type of thrilling puzzle experience. As they progress through the game, players will have to use different strategies to deal with new shapes in order to create the ultimate chain. Players will be able to collect coins as they create the Trioncube chain and purchase various unique Effects and Arts - like sushi rolls, dogs and tambourines jumping out of the Trioncube - as they travel the galaxy in their Penko.
