Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube?

Cublet destruction has gone viral with 22 cans newest creation, Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube? This addicative Android game will have you playing fro hours in a quest to discover what's inside the cube.

22 Cans have released what is arguably the most exciting Android game of the year, Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube?. The company’s Facebook page describes the game as “a unique global experiment.”

The game revolves around a gigantic cube that users interact with. Users explode layers of smaller cubes in order to reach the center. Imagine a present wrapped in several layers of wrapping paper and you will get some idea of what the game involves. The Android game designer behind Curiosity, Peter Molyneux has stated that the center of the cube is “life changingly amazing by any definition.”

What is interesting about this game is that it is a globally interactive platform. Players from all around the world are working together and against each other with a single goal in mind.

Unfortunately for me the game is not supported for my Samsung Galaxy Pocket, however the excitement generated by the game got the better of me and I found myself using a friends phone to explore the game. The game should have a warning label as it is ridiculously addictive and had me playing it for hours.

The 22 cans website even displays the Curiosity Stats so you can keep a close eye on how the action is unfolding. The stats include: Cubelets Destroyed – 3,006,634 as well as the average daily Cublet Destruction Rate – 14,445. These numbers are an indication at how virally popular the simple task of destroying blocks has become.

There is no telling how many layers the cube has and like a kid at Christmas it is difficult to stop ripping off layers. This game will have me playing for many more hours and keeping an eye out to see what the mythical center holds.

What do you think will be in the center?

    The stats on the 22 cans cover the Beta of Curiosity and not actually what's happening right now. Live stats were initially planned as the in-app purchase but have not seen that option.

    The game is not really that addictive - I've tapped for like 5 minutes. What's really throwing me back is that both on my Samsung Galaxy S and Asus Transformer the game works really laggy and by that I not only mean network connection but the animation itself which makes breaking the cublets rather not enjoyable experience.

    And I'm pretty sure inside will be a message of love an peace or something along those lines ;). Or one bazilion $$ for the lucky one - not really that interested.

    Thanks for the clarification. I have heard that there have been some problems with lagging. Personally I played it on a Galaxy Note and it worked perfectly. It terms of how addictive it is, try it when you are you are sitting in a line ha ha.

    I've tried to play for the last few days and I keep getting a generic "server is too busy" message, of some sort. Supposedly 22cans is working on a fix.

    I downloaded this last week and ive managed to play it twice for 5 minutes, the rest of the time ive gotten an error message. crazy how many negative reviews its gotten on google play just because the app cant cope with the demand. It seems super buggy though - and are there no instructions or anything?
