We liked the game's retro aesthetic. Developed by independent studio Sunna Entertainment, Planet Cube: Edge is a real pixellated masterpiece that has captivated the hearts of gamers. With its retro aesthetic, it takes you on a real visual odyssey through some truly breathtaking landscapes. The shades of blue-green and the polished details work to create an immersive atmosphere that places players right in the heart of the action. Fans of Sonic will even find a few nods to that most famous blue hedgehog. The short, pithy dialogue that punctuates the adventure provide some welcome respite from the game's two intense gameplay sequences.

But be warned: Planet Cube: Edge isn't a game for the faint-hearted! It's an extremely demanding game that will really put your reflexes to the test. You'll need to demonstrate dexterity, precision, and quick reflexes to overcome every new challenge. Just brushing against the littlest enemy can prove fatal! Thankfully, there are plenty of save points where you can catch your breath.
Each of the game's eight levels are divided into several different screens, but each screen can take 30-60 minutes to beat!

We loved the intuitive controls that let players focus on the action without being distracted by complex mechanics. Jump, crush, dash, and shoot... the possibilities are endless, especially as there are a variety of actions to get past obstacles or take out the quirky baddies.

Our advice? If you're in the mood for an even bigger challenge and added replayability, there are items to collect in each level that will force you to use your full range of skills if you're to get your hands on them. You'll also need to make it through the screen where you found them without dying if you want to keep them. The really neat thing is that each of these items unlocks an audio track, video, or image gallery in the game's main menu.

Planet Cube: Edge is much more than just another childlike platformer. It's an immersive experience for seasoned gamers and fully deserving of its excellent reviews. If you're ready for the challenge, dive into this breathless adventure and get ready to put your skills to the test!
