Edge is a cubist’s fantasy; a universe comprising of nothing but cubes and right angled shapes. In this strange world, players must roll their large colourful cube through the world, collecting smaller coloured cubes to increase your highscore. You will need to roll through and collect these cubes as fast as possible then make your make to the end of the level as fast as possible.

The game’s default controls require players to move the cube by dragging their finger over it, but there are two other schemes, including a d-pad and tilt controls. They will need to roll around the levels, rolling up steps, being careful not to fall off the edge and get pushed off by rotating or moving blocks.

The dull, and somewhat depressing, greyscale levels are broken up by the vibrant rainbow colour patterns of your cube and help keep gameplay fresh. The sound is also very well done and features a lively mix of electro and spacey sound effects. The game features 46 levels with some hidden levels and all scores can be sent off to the game global leaderboards.

Edge is an addictive puzzle game that may not seem like much at first but will soon grow on you. The levels start off basic enough, but once multiple platforms and other involved puzzles become a major part of gameplay, the game really draws you in. Edge is an enjoyable and worthwhile puzzle game that will have you playing for hours on end.
