3 Sprockets TD/RTS Cubemen Gets A HUGE Update

Updates are a huge part of the iOS gaming scene, and it's always great when a huge one goes live. This morning, I woke up, checked my updates, and saw one for Cubemen, a 3D TD/RTS hybrid developed by 3 Sprockets, and was surprised to see all that had been tweaked and added to the game. Here's a list of new features and improvements;

>Level Editor including level creation, sharing & favorites
>Local Mayhem games (no need for online connectivity at all)
>Added random tower placement option in defense (unlocked per level by getting platinum)
>Added reverse tower placement in Skirmish Mode (local and online games)
>Added brand new music tracks with custom music theme selection options per game mode
>Added volume controls for Music and SFX in game options and in game
>Added music selection control in game options and in game
>Added smarter AI
>Added Level Theme skinning gallery and ability to create custom themes to share
>Improved level selection
>Made in game scores the same calculation as end of game scores
>Brand new Cubemen original music score available as an album (available soon)
>Updated pathfinding library for better performance, lower memory usage and fewer crashes
>New local Mayhem Level - Empires

Yeah, that's right, a LEVEL EDITOR! Now, I will say that not many games with level editors really keep me coming back time and time again, and there's very few gamers out there with the skills required to create levels worth sharing, but it can be incredibly fun to mess around with for a while, and if you are one of the few that has some nice level design skills, it gives you the chance to create and show off your ideas. On top of that, all of the new tweaks and features look like they add a ton to the gameplay, and if you have Cubemen already, you know that these are some additions that weren't really needed, but now that they've been incorporated, have put Cubemen at the top of the genre, and make it a must own for fans of TD/RTS hybrids. 

If you've yet to pick up Cubemen, it's $2.99 and available for the iPad. You can check out the trailer below, and if it strikes your fancy, pick it up! You won't regret it.
