This is a puzzle game with a surprisingly niche audience, with frustrating play and repetitive puzzles. Unless you're able to quickly and easily figure out how to see the two-dimensional silhouettes of three dimensional objects, there's a good chance you won't be able to get much further than a few minutes into SuperHyperCube's endless stream of cube clusters, even after several tries. And even if you do have a knack for this sort of puzzle you'll need to have the proper temperament to find gratification in a repetitive task which, though it grows in complexity, doesn't ever substantially change or evolve. You'll have a pretty good idea what the entire game is like within the first five minutes.

It's also a case of a game that might have been better experienced on a standard TV than in virtual reality. Having a full field of vision in VR allows us to better appreciate the game's admittedly pretty neon world, but doesn't do much more. In fact, the need to move your head so you can look around block clusters to see the wall is actually a bit frustrating, since it eats into time you could have spent manipulating the blocks. You'll likely find yourself wishing for a fixed and slightly elevated camera so you could see both your blocks and the hole at the same time. SuperHyperCube is an interesting idea that just doesn't quite catch hold.
