Google first teased us with a demo video of its map-based Cube game way back in January. But instead of having it ready to kill time during the cold winter months back in February, the game has only just been released this week. Finally.
It’s basically exactly like a classic game of Labyrinth, but instead of guiding a ball through a wooden maze by twisting a couple of knobs, you guide a virtual ball through a small section of Google maps using your cursor. There are eight levels in total, covering cities and locations around the world, and each one encourages you to take advantage of Google Map’s features to find the most optimal route. Your progress is also timed, giving you a totally valid excuse to play it again and again as you compete against your co-workers.
