The evil wizard Mobib uses the energy of the ancient pyracubes to turn King Theban into a beetle. Theban needs to destroy all the cubes to return to human form and defeat Mobib.
Pyracubes is a puzzle game with elements from Sokoban. The objective is to collide boxes by dragging them through a labyrinth with the scarab-shaped cursor. When all the boxes that share the same color are touching each other, they disappear. There is a "undo" button to step back after doing a wrong move.
Some levels introduce new items and variations on the basic gameplay. Some boxes have a limited amount of moves, displayed in a number over them, before they get stuck. The bombs destroy obstacles, creating paths between the boxes. The paintbrush talisman changes the box color.
