Planet Cube is being invaded by a mysterious aggressor, and its populace are not ready for a fight. While most cubes run to the nearest exit, one square-headed lab technician named Edge finds it in himself to save the world. Of course, he'll have a little help from co-workers and the illustrious Dr Quadratus, as well as some experimental weapons... But why is the planet being invaded? Who is the invading force? The answers will become clear as our hero makes his way through an underwater science complex with danger at every turn...!

One false move and it's game over

For those of us who grew up with classic platform games like Manic Miner, Planet Cube: Edge recreates the same frustratingly challenging gameplay but reinvents it for a modern audience.

Don't let the cutesy, simple graphics fool you. Underneath there's a fiendishly difficult game ready for only the most determined to master.

A lot of the levels are simple trial and error. You'll need to position your character, Edge, just right and then time your jump at just the right moment in order to pass the increasingly difficult obstacles in your path.

A fiendishly difficult game ready for only the most determined to master

One false move and it's game over. Thankfully the game jumps back to the last time the screen scrolled or you entered that room. The save points seem to be perfectly placed to ensure you're not having to constantly recomplete areas you've already spent ages to master.

This is a game that you'll play in short bursts, but be drawn back to time and time again. Yes, the precision needed to progress can be frustrating. However, there's nothing quite so satisfying as finally working out how to manoeuvre a series of painfully difficult obstacles.
