Chaos in the Kingdom!

It once was a peaceful kingdom of friendly, kind people. Unfortunately, this land didn't stay so serene as a wicked wizard king wanted everything for himself. Using his magic powers the wizard quickly overpowered the helpless people, put everybody including Princess Mira, into "dream bags", and turned the entire kingdom into a frozen wasteland.

It is your job as Kickle to progress through all of the areas within each of the four lands in the country and eliminate all of the Wizard's henchmen and rescue your friends who are held captive in a dreamless sleep.

Kickle Cubicle is a captivating puzzle game much on the lines of the old coin-op game Pengo. More recently though, it contains similar concepts seen in the Lolo series of NES carts where planning and strategy is more important than quick moves.

Your main weapon is your 'chilling' ice breath. Breathe on the enemy and they instantly freeze! Give them a kick and they're out of your way! Clear a couple dozen mazes and you come to the end of the land you're in where you must then beat one of the Boss creatures.

Throw in springs, hammers, bonus stages and secret traps and the game quickly turns into a puzzle game with levels which start easy but increase in difficulty as you get better!

  • Kickle contains over 100 different and challenging puzzles!
  • You can walk on water! To get to islands, freeze a Noggle and push him into the water to form a bridge you can walk on!
  • Occasionally you may uncover one of Princess Mira's rings. Get it and go to the Bonus Stage!
  • Use the hammer for turning cubes. Push one at it, and the hammer will hit it away!
  • Get to the end of a land and be prepared to take on one of the Wizard's Bosses.
