With the abundance of puzzle games out there in the eShop I would imagine it’s a true challenge to do anything that feels fresh and different. The Last Cube does itself a favor in this department by at least going with a 3D look and feel, and then pairs it with a style of play that can be a little tricky to fully wrap your head around at first, but that naturally walks you through a progression of puzzles that help you understand how best to leverage your multiple abilities. The key to everything revolves around stamping different runes onto the sides of your cube, with the goal of then matching that rune to a spot on the ground. This can be tricky at times, but given that with the press of the button the game will often provide you help with how to do it there’s almost always help available to you if you choose to take it. As you progress new runes mean new powers but then also new complications in the form of obstacles that will mess you up and will require planning to get around. While it may not be something everyone will enjoy, there are some smart ideas in play here and if you’re in search of a take on a puzzler that’s off the beaten path this may be worth a look.
