Cubic Castles Review

Play NOW!

Cubic Castles is a Sandbox MMO developed and published by Cosmic Cow Games in 2014. If one could compare it to another title, it would probably be a Minecraft-Animal Crossing combination. In Cubic Castles you get your own realm, in which you can build whatever you want. The game itself gives you a lot of cool tools to make you the builder of anything possible, from basic towers, to music puzzles, to get-to-the-end platformer games.

Cubic Castles’ world is a vast one. All players are packed in one server and you can visit everyones realm so that you can get building ideas, buy anything from their shop or simply hang out and try some puzzles. What’s bad about its realm system is that for you to find anyone you have to start searching far and wide because fast-tracking isn’t available. Also your realm isn’t noticable on the map so you may find it hard to get back.

Another bad thing is the way the camera is pointed, it makes the game unplayable at some times. You may find yourself in a player’s building and can’t find a way out or you may miss things along your way just because of the top-down view of the camera.

When talking about variety, Cubic Castles is a chaos. There are so many cool items and crafted materials that you can basically do anything you want. You have to find all those things by yourself though because the game’s questing system and tutorial are nowhere near helpful. You better look a guide up if you want to play the game on the long run.

As a verdict, Cubic Castles is one of the most interesting Sandbox Building MMO’s where your limits are only your imagination. Yes, there might be a few drawbacks to its gameplay but which sandbox game doesn’t? If you have a small one in your family which you want to spend time with but Minecraft is an expensive option for you, then Cubic Castles is the perfect solution since it’s available on both mobile devices and Steam.
