HOW TO PLAY
1. Input Text Sequences
Cubie is basically played by inputting characters by typing.
Let's input some words.(name, favorites, random typing, whatever)
A text sequence input generates a music sequence, and inputting some lines makes polyphony.
2. Select Text Color
Click palette bar on the top-left corner, and change the current text color.
Color of the text sequence inputted determine the tone color.
3. Connect Characters
Each of the two inputted characters which are contained in different sequences can be connected each other by mouse.
When you connect them, you can exchange the flows of each sequence after the connection.
4. Scissors Icon
Select the scissors icon from the tool bar on the top-left corner.
With scissors icon, you can cut the connection by dragging across the connection, and the flows of each sequence return.
5. Arrow Icon
Select right-left / up-down arrow icon from tool bar on the top-left corner.
With those icons, you can select the rows / columns of characters and can rotate them like a rubik's cube by dragging.
Characters on the other surfaces also mean log of past sequences.
Cubie has much more hidden tricks. And there's some exploits reported.
Let's find the tricks and enjoy your own play style of Cubie!!
