Summary: Death By Cube is a strategic twin-stick shooter in which players attempt to defeat cube-shaped enemy robots. Take on missions in single-player mode or enjoy heated battles in online and offline multiplayer modes.
Conclusion: The music is perhaps one of the good things about this title. It's an original score that mixes electronic and.. I'm not entirely sure. We'll just go with electronic. It's nice, that's all that matters. I realize this review is short, but it's a rather uninteresting and short game.
Summary: “Welcome to Death By Cube,” a feminine robotic voice says when I first start the game. Pressing “A” to continue not only brings up the menu but splashes red oil all over the on-screen robot. The music and presentation are very atmospheric and I get excited to begin.

Pros: Offers new twists on classic Robotron formula, No shortage of mayhem and energy, Such a cute little robot!
Cons: Feels like a grind, Strategy fails and spamming rules, What's with all the blood?
