CombatCubes is an action-packed 2D arcade shooter, where the player controls Dave, an elite fighting cube. Dave blasts his way through side scrolling levels, fighting tanks and other fighting cubes along the way. The game includes a persistent weapon unlock system, as well as in-game killstreaks and upgrades. Development is planned for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms.
Another monthly update from the team at Blackout about their upcoming title, CombatCubes.

A month has passed since the last update regarding the development of CombatCubes, and we have tons of exciting new features to talk about.
Firstly, the rocket launcher is now functional (partially at least), and now all that it needs it some tanks to blast!
Secondly, a health/damage system has been implemented, because the enemies now shoot! The game is no longer a cakewalk, and now takes some skill to play. There is still no effect or screen for death, however, but we plan to implement that soon.
Health also regenerates, but probably a bit too fast.
Love2D has an interesting WebGL port project, so we are looking into publishing this game on the web alongside the other platforms.
We are approaching the point in development where we can start a public Alpha test, so watch the game to join as soon as it is announced!
I leave you with the latest gameplay video:
P.S. Stickmen and Stones will likely be an Xbox title.
