You're a prince. You have a spaceship. There's a lovely young lady who just happens to be a princess that's been kidnapped and whisked away across the solar system. Worse still, she's been whisked away by a horrid chap called Hell Metal. Sounds nasty, we know. Now it's up to you, in your mighty spaceship (masculinely called Penko) to journey across eight worlds to rescue her and live happily ever after.

We know what you're thinking, and no, TrionCube's not the latest Ratchet and Clank game or a space-based combat release. It's actually a puzzle game, wrapped in a quirkily surreal package for your handheld pleasure.

TrionCube has its gameplay roots in the granddaddy of all puzzlers, Tetris. Once again you'll need to contend with falling blocks to win out. In this case, dealing with the blocks will provide you with fuel and coinage to get you across space and into the arms of your loved one. Breaking away from the traditional falling block game mechanic of putting together lines to make them vanish, TrionCube instead relies on stringing together 3x3 combos to turn them into fuel and cash money. And, of course, the bigger the chain you make, the further your ship will fly.
