Like most other iOS games from Nitrome, Gunbrick is based on a browser game. But in its transition from browser to iOS, Gunbrick has been pumped and revved up with enhanced graphics and gameplay.
Gunbrick is a so-called “puzzle romper” that challenges you to control the titular badass cube that’s a gun on one side and a shield on the other, and roll it toward the exit in each level.
What makes Gunbrick different from most other puzzle platformers is its deceptively simple controls. Just swipe sideways to roll the “gunbrick” and hold a swipe to continue rolling. Tap to shoot and hold down to continue firing. Note that firing against the ground propels the gunbrick upward.
In addition to taking the gunbrick from point A to point B, you also have to defend and protect it against mutants, nerds, law enforcers, and other cube-based enemies along the way.
