Overview and Gameplay of KaleidoKubes
Apple IIgs version of KaleidoKubes
is a puzzle/strategey game for two players (either one player against the computer, or two players against each other).
Players take turns placing cubes on a board with the goal of earning the most points by the end of the game. Each cube is broken up
into four triangles with each triangle being one of four possible colors (yellow, blue, green, or red); in order for a cube to be
placed on the board, the colors on each side of the cube must match up with all of the adjacent cubes already on the board.
Players may rotate the cube they are give left or right as many times as needed in order to make the cube fit. In the event no moves are possible, players may
pass on a turn at the cost of some points. Points are earned by placing a cube on the board, and the more sides that are adjacent to other
cubes the more points earned. On each turn players have a time limit (the amount of time available can
be configured from the main menu); if time runs out, it becomes the other players turn and some points are lost. The game board can be
different sizes and shapes; several options are included with the game and an editor is
available to allow players to create their own game board.
The game ends either when the board is filled or there are two consecutive turns with no moves made (either due to running out of time
or passing). The player with the most points at the end wins the game.
