Newgrounds: Back to the Cubeture Episode 1 Walkthrough


Thanks for choosing Cuboy as your ultimate friend.

First wait for the preloader to complete. When it's done, the main menu will appear. Click on the purple button on the right.

note on clicking objects in Back to the Cubeture : You need to click the corresponding tile, instead of the visual object. If you click a character, don't point the mouse at him - point it at the tile he's standing on.

Watch the movie, or press space twice to skip it.

area - Town 1

  • If the player talks to the bartender again, he can get beers from him. The bartender will slide a glass of beer towards Cuboy, and the player needs to click on the beer at the time it's in front of Cuboy to receive it.
drunk
  • Cuboy will greet the drunk with a random greeting, and the drunk will respond with a random line, except for his first reaction - he asks Cuboy to bring him a beer.

final mini game

This minigame is a little more complex. There are three obstacles:

  • Rolling tumbleweed. Press space when it's right in front of Cuboy to jump over it.
  • Padrino throwing a bomb. You can only shoot it when it's not above you, and not in Padrino's hand. Timing is essential - press space when Padrino's hand is at the lowest point in his throwing motion.
  • Bandit. This works just like normal shootout mini games. Press space only when the signpost is green.

When cuboy reaches the front of the train, he will try to make Padrino stop. In round one and two, disarm Padrino by tapping space. In round three, Cuboy will distract Padrino by shouting an insult, chosen by the player from random 'good' or 'bad' insults. choose wisely. If you chose four 'good' insults, Padrino's guard will be down, and the last space bash minigame starts - If you win, the final movie will play.
