[BB Dev Success Story] PineLake Communications on Porting Cubifice to BlackBerry 10
Our friends at RIM tipped us off on this great BlackBerry Developer Success Story on PineLake Communications game Cubifice being ported to BlackBerry 10. If you haven’t tried this clever and unique puzzler yet, good news because it is currently FREE for BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha users and BlackBerry PlayBook users!
RIM recently talked to PineLake Communications Creative Director, Bill Larocque, Dave Wagler Cubifice Lead Developer & Liana Buenaventura Brown Associate Account Director about porting the Cubifice game from the Android platform to the BlackBerry PlayBook & BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device.
Before we link over to the post at RIM’s DevBlog let me say a bit about Cubifice. Since the recent update to the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha OS, Research In Motion did something we’ve never seen before. They added a special BlackBerry App World store to these Dev Alpha devices. Giving developers a chance to easily share their upcoming projects with other developers and eliminated the need for Dev Alpha owners to sideload these products.
Cubifice is a colorful block puzzle game where you try to reshape standing blocks while eliminating them as you try to land the outline preset in each level. The game includes 3 levels: Classic, Arcade & Time Attack. As well as 3 difficulty thresholds: easy, medium & hard. It was the very first product I downloaded after launching App World on the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha for the first time. To sum things up it’s a quick pick up & play game that will get increasingly challenging as you progress. Cubifice maintains a classic game style while putting a fresh spin on things!
