Freeware Garden: Battle Cube

Dodge Cube, more accurately

Battle Cube is neither the latest game by Knytt creator Nifflas, nor his latest freeware offering -- that would be lovely platformer Saira. It is a little non-platforming experiment instead and a game he released roughly a year ago and has himself categorized as a miscellaneous creation.

Also, it's a brilliant little thing I totally randomly bumped into and instantly loved.

Metaphorically embodying a humble, white cursor (or WASD) keys-driven square that can dash when you press space, Battle Cube is a frantic, twitch avoid-'em-up, in which you have to evade the varied, colourful projectiles a wonderful-yet-murderous square is launching at you. It's a simple game at heart, I know, but it's well-designed - a perfectly fair yet challenging offering you'll simply have to give it a go. Chances are you won't stop playing until you beat it.

Granted, Battle Cube will only last you a few minutes, but things so beautiful and so perfectly synchronized to their music should never drag on. Unless they evolve into a full game, that is.
