About the Game

When you, as a young boy, are dropped off to visit your uncle, you notice something’s wrong. First, he’s not there to greet you. Second, there’s the explosion that happened right as you arrived. And third, the house seems to be even weirder than you remembered it. Now, your job is to find—and ultimately rescue—your uncle, by using his newest invention, the Interdimensional Shift Device (or IDS), to switch between dimensions and solve puzzles. That sofa too heavy to move? There’s a dimension for that! Switch to Fluffy Dimension and that sofa is now light as a feather. Need to get up to a high ledge? There’s a dimension for that! Just switch to Anti-Gravity Dimension and things begin to float upward. Need to make things heavier? There’s a dimension for th—well, you get the idea. Switch dimensions in real time, work your way through the crazy complex mansion wings and rescue your uncle!

I really enjoyed Quantum Conundrum although it wasn't very long. You switch between dimensions to solve puzzles that lead to the rescue of your uncle, who you visited. He still can talk to you though, he tells you some hilarious jokes and might give you a hint or two. His interdimensional pet Ike watches over you and hands you some of the stuff you need. I recommend you to skip any guidence in the first gameplay because the base game isn't really that hard, that'll be the point of its DLCs which I will review later. Patience is golden, many times you'll stop looking back at how easy it actually was after finally proceeding. I loved it and it deserves more attention in my opinion. If it's too heavy, fluff it up! 9/10

There's two types of "family movies". The ones that anyone can actually enjoy, at any age, with or without kids of their own. And then there's "kid's movies", the ones that only young kids can really sit through and enjoy. Sadly, this is the kind of game that falls into that later category. The humor is obvious, boring, and at times it feels ripped straight from the internet. It's aesthetic is the kind that you can tell is trying really hard to be cute, but I certainly don't think it really succeeded. Cartoony, sure, but hardly cute. The puzzles are eazy to figure out, but often frustating and stressful to actually carry out.

This is all really sad, because the mechanics themselves are ridiculously good. With some slight tweaking, a bit more testing, and some slight redesigning, and maybe someone taking a new approach to the script, this could have been a really fun, compelling game. But you're just much better off looking for some other puzzle game, one that won't frustrate you with annoying acrobatics, some wonky game design, and the occasional cringe inducing one liner (there's only one character, ALL the dialogue is one liners).

Maybe, just maybe, if it's on a really good sale, pick it up. Kid's will love it, I'm sure. If it's just for you, though, I can't say I'd recommend spending more than $3 on this. Some good ideas, not the best execution, nothing too memorable about it. 5/10

While the game starts out fun and enjoyable it slowly becomes a sort of jump puzzle “I-wish-I-were-Portal” type game and at after that point it’s just plain irritating. Towards the end I just really wished it would finish quickly because I couldn’t stand all the jumping and luck involved in solving puzzles. The second half of the game just ruined the whole thing for me and if I ever have to surf on top of a safe again it will be two lifetimes too soon.

I found this game to be really fun at first. It had a charming art style and relaxing music. As the game was from the designer or Portal, I assumed the it would be just as solid and dependable. Sadly, I was disappointed by inconsistant physics and weird behaviour such as any sping jump's momentum being instantly cancelled by pushing an direction on stick (WSAD). This totally arbitrary restriction meant that getting a handle of that aspect of the gameplay was highly frustrating. I see no reason physics or otherwise for it to occur. It made the game incredibly irritating and it never recovered from it. With this knowlege, perhaps you will enjoy the game as I didn't. However, with inconsistent platforming mechanics and thoroughly irritating level deign which punishes platforming slipups to a level which the controls, physics and level design itself cannot justify, I'd have to say, play Portal again. I am, and I am loving every minute of that solidly designed and put together game. I am glad that this game was free.

A very good but short game.
I'd totally play Quantum conundrum 2 if it ever came out.
The puzzles where inventive, new and fresh.

Shortly:
Love a good cartoon? You're welcome :)
Love a good puzzle? Close the page :(

Pros: visuals and such: stunning design, not bad graphics, nice atmosphere and jokes, John de Lancie as Professor Quadwrangle, original story, price
Cons: actual gameplay: pretty short (there are some DLCs out there though), not many good puzzles, requires more jumping skills than thinking ones, freaking tons of blur

The long way:
I love this game. Yeah, that simple, just as simple as the game is. It has nice design, good 3d-cartoon-like graphics and jokes which are really good (well, sometimes they aren't, but nothing is perfect in this world). The main problems are the puzzles and length of the game itself - I've run through it in ~6 hours, but I haven't got 100% completion though. Now about the puzzles. They are simple as well, but that's not good this time. You won't find any really hard-brainsmashing-cool-etc puzzles in this game - all of them are considerably easy. Also, this game has a lot of platforming. I like this, but you may not if you're looking for a brain challenge.

PS: I'm sorry if my English is bad, it's not my native language.
