Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes is an Action Adventure spin-off of the popular Cube Life: Island Survival for Wii U.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes breaks away from the gameplay introduced in Cube Life: Island Survival. Rather than obtaining resources, building forts and crafting weapons, the game focuses largely on Run and Gun FPS action. Players take on the role of a Pixel Action Hero of their choice (you can also create your own Hero) and charge gun-first into several action-packed missions and non-stop zombie modes. Some gameplay elements were taken from Island Survival, though. Pixel Action Heroes shares the exact same textures and graphics as with Cube Life Island Survival, and it shares Island Survival's Creative Mode (Which is used to create Maps), Skin Editor, and Online Rankings. Curiously, though the game has only been released for Wii U, Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes is shown on Cypronia's website as having a Nintendo Switch logo next to it, though there was no official information concerning a Nintendo Switch release of the game. About a year later, Cypronia confirmed via indirect tweet that a Nintendo Switch version was, in fact, in development.

​Release[edit | edit source]

Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes was released for Wii U eShop on March 30, 2017. A free demo was available for download, and the game was a huge success, outselling Minecraft and Splatoon during the first few weeks of its release.

Reception[edit | edit source]

Critics generally disliked Cube Life: Island Survival, with PureNintendo giving it a 5 out of 10, though the author stated that it may be a good game for some, just not for him. It maintains a 4 out of 5 stars on the Wii U eShop.
