  • GENREPuzzle
Set in a mysterious and abstract sterile environment, Q.U.B.E. (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion) is a first-person puzzle game that challenges players to navigate each level by manipulating coloured cubes that surround them. There’s little to go on as the game begins – the player is dropped into an all-white room with few instructions, and simply has to figure their way out. The tone of game changes as the player finds small and big alterations to their environment, supported by an original score, inviting each player to let their imagination take over as to where they might be. Through experimentation and discovery, players will progress through an ever-evolving series of cube puzzles that will challenge them with logic, physics, platforming.

  1. Fine in its own right, terrible compared to Portal
    by Andras Csibi, Hungary - Jan 19th 2013

    It's hard not to compare Q.U.B.E. with the Portal series. You wake up in a sterile environment and have to solve 3d movement puzzles to get out.

    After Portal 2 this game was terribly disappointing, but in its own right, it's OK I guess. The puzzles are OK, but they are not very original. Most puzzles are just 2d puzzles similar to Sokoban or Atomix. There weren't many puzzles that challenged your 3d problem solving like Portal did.

    And the puzzles involving magnetism are so extremely annoying! You figure out what you are supposed to do, but still can't solve the puzzle because it all comes down to pushing buttons with extremely precise timing.
    Basically it doesn't even have a storyline so you are not motivated to complete an annoying puzzle other than to see what the next annoying puzzle is (in the Portal games you gladly solve ANY puzzle because you really want to destroy GLaDOS:)

    However, this game is not expensive and I kind of enjoyed the few hours of play time I got from it. Just don't compare it to Portal:) The game runs fine without any crashes on my 2012 MBA.

    I love the puzzle solving side of this game. Sadly, it crashes a lot for me.
