Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed is a role-playing video game developed and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. in 1992.
Versions of the game were sold for the IBM PC Compatible (all versions used the Gold Box engine.)
The game took place in the Buck Rogers XXVC campaign setting. Matrix Cubed is a sequel to Countdown to Doomsday, which came out in 1990.
Computer Gaming World in 1992 criticized SSI for, as it did with Eye of the Beholder, giving the game an abrupt, anticlimactic ending. The magazine concluded that "overall, Matrix Cubed is a disappointment. Aside from the horrible ending, the pieces just don't fit together as well as they should", and inferior to Countdown to Doomsday. In 1993 the magazine stated that the game was "a disappointing sequel", advising those who were not a "real hard-core Rogers fan" to avoid it. The game was reviewed in 1992 in Dragon #182 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave the game 4 out of 5 stars.
There is only one known version for MS-DOS:
