Travel the Matrix with Cube Run 3D
If some fast paced, dodge-em action in a retro, yet colorful matrix-like dimension sounds like something fun with which to make the time fly by, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member DDeleted‘s Cube Run 3D for your Android device. The developer behind the previously featured Smart Screen On and Keep Screen On, DDeleted’s Cube Run 3D’s central game play consists of speeding and dashing your triangular racer between ‘cubular’ obstacles, all the while trying to hoard as many coins as possible.
Power ups are scattered all across the map, with magnets allowing you to pick up all surrounding coins without actually coming in contact with them. Picking up a shield will grant you immunity from all obstacles for a set amount of time. Upgrades can be purchased with the coins accumulated during game play, and include goodies such as longer magnet and shield duration, increased frequency of power ups, and upgrades or your racer. Accompanied by appropriate Midi techno music, the game is pleasantly reminiscent of the classic film Tron, with its bright neon colors and fast paced action.
Cube Run 3D will run on any device running Android version 4.0 and over, and is free from the Play store. If you would like to check this out, visit the application thread for more information.
