★★★★ - Gamezebo 4/5:
"Besides its brilliantly challenging, but never too difficult puzzles, the entire experience is simultaneously soothing and uneasy. The mystery of Kyubo’s imprisonment and the small bits of info received along the way, set against atmospheric piano tones, are eerily enticing."

★★★★ - Arcade Sushi 7/10:
"In perhaps its strangest bit of experimentation, Kyubo has pulled off something that sets itself apart from every other mobile game out there now."

★★★★ - 148Apps 4/5:
"It’s a clever puzzle platformer in need of a little tweaking, but what’s already there is really neat."

Customer Reviews

A lot of fun

I had a lot of fun finishing this game and going back to try for the crowns. It is good for short bursts or a marathon play session. If it is possible to choose control layouts it might be fun to set up co-op play by having the controls for the blocks on the top of the screen and the platforming at the bottom. If you're worried about understanding the Italian-English, it's not that bad. Just think of it as bonus puzzles in a puzzle game! Seriously, everything was understandable, and I couldn't find any language faults in the storyline bits. :)

Needs landscape mode or better controls

Kyubo is easily a 5-star game but the developer needs to release an update addressing the current control scheme. We either need the option to play in landscape (which probably wouldn't work as many of the levels require you to work your way up vertically) or a better button layout. The iPhone 5/iPod touch (5th Gen) display is simply too small to comfortably play Kyubo with its current controls. On a brighter note, the art style is gorgeous, the main character is awesome-looking, and the puzzle mechanics are a refreshing twist on old genre tropes. If the dev addresses the controls, this is a 5-star game.

Would be great but...

For the love of god, let me turn it sideways...this should not be a vertical game. Really takes away from the gameplay.
