Cube Crash is priced at $1.54 in Google Play, and it is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Cube Crash is described as follows:
So Many Pretty Boxes

In Cube Crash, you must make matches of three or more colored cubes. The larger your grouping, the higher your score. But don't leave too many blocks behind, or you won't progress to the next level.

The More We Get Together

The trick to the game is the scoring; line up massive groups of blocks to clear all at once. To earn the highest score, don't just press wildly to clear the grid. The more blocks you include in one large group, the more points each block is worth, so plan out your moves for the highest score.

As you hover your finger over a group of blocks, your selection lights up and shows you how many points you'll earn from the combo. Plan ahead to drop blocks into line with others, and create larger groups for higher scores. Very large groupings don't just scatter when you crash thorugh them--they seem to explode, adding a satisfying feeling of "boom" to this simple yet challenging game.
Cube Crash is rated at 2.3 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 2.5 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Serious bugs in this app. Many of the reviews in Google Play say they can't open the app after the first session. We'd pass on this one, unless you want to "buy" it for free and "hold" it until they fix the bugs.
