In the budget casual game arena there are some titles that embrace less complex controls, some only featuring one button even, and surprisingly deliver compelling gameplay. Then there are the bulk of the rest that really don’t. While it is certainly colorful and briefly interesting Splashy Cube unfortunately falls into the second camp, with you maneuvering your cube through a maze-like grid that has an ever-increasing number of traps to contend with using the trigger buttons on either side to move left or right. The result is an action puzzler of sorts, where the challenge is you’re only ever able to move forward, which requires a fair degree of planning the further you get to determine how to weave through threats and get to the exit. It’s by no means a bad game, it’s just not a terribly ambitious one so it’s easy to walk away from.
