Tube-It is an Arcade Puzzle Game released by Taito in 1993. It was originally released in Japanese arcades under the name Cachat.

During the game, blocks of straight, curved, plus-shaped, or t-shaped pieces fall from the top of the screen. The goal of the game is to align the blocks so a path is created from one electrode to another, either on the same side or the opposite side. The player uses the joystick with a button to rotate the blocks and drag the block left or right. You can also drag a block from beneath other blocks.

If the blocks reach the top of the screen before you can complete the circuit, the game is over. The game has ten levels.


Tropes in this game

  • Badass Native: The main guy (and girl) does almost all the game is dance. It might sound mundane, until you find out or realize how energy-consuming it is.
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Up to two players can play against each other.
  • Funny Background Event: The level backgrounds change.
  • Let's Dance: The main guy and girl just dance regularly.
  • Nintendo Hard: To an extent. The later levels are somewhat brutal. An increase in blocks is one thing, but the fact the blocks fall insanely fast in later levels is something else.
  • Scenery Porn: Hands down. Look at the picture above and tell us it's not amazing for the time.
