This week’s free app of the week is a game I recently found my mother playing, Cube Runner. Okay, even though my mother was playing it, it does not mean it’s lame! Cube Runner is a 3D flying game, with the objective of not flying into the numerous cubes scattered around the track. At first, you need a little practice, but once you get used to it, you really get into it. To play, you first choose landscape or portrait mode. (I personally like the landscape mode). Then you choose your difficulty, and 3rd Party Level Pack, (if you have one) that you can download from the internet. Next, you just steer the two-arrow plane in the direction you want, by tilting the phone to the left or right. If you’re lucky, you can make it to the end of the track…If there is one. I’ve personally never seen the end, or even made it close. 

There’s definitely something about this game that just amazes my friends and I. Maybe it’s just the fact that we’re flying a "plane". Or maybe it’s the fact that we are in such control because of the superb technology of the iPhone. Trust me. This is a must have game for all ages. If it’s not just teaching you hand-eye coordination, it’s probably just plain fun.

The only con: The game does not look developed enough. It looks really plain, and not polished to perfection. No wonder it’s free…
