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

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.

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.

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.

A first-person puzzle game in the same vein as Portal, but voiced by John de Lancie! (That's the actor who played Q on ST:TNG, if you're a fan of the show.) The game suits him well, charming with a unique brand of wit and humour sprinkled throughout each puzzle. It's a delight to play and, while many of the solutions are somewhat rigid, more than a few allow the player enough freedom to come up with their own answers to each obstacle.

Unfortunately, since Mr. de Lancie's commentary, as the professor, greatly establishes the mood and tempo of the game, I cannot recommend the DLC. Ike-Aramba! and The Desmond Debacle fall flat due to their monotony and most of the puzzles in them are less puzzles and more sequences of specific timing where the slightest error--in a belligerently linear solution--will have you pulling out your hair as you try and try again. At least the checkpoints are frequent enough that you never have to start a puzzle from the very beginning.

The short version: Buy the game--it's really fun, and spring for the DLC if it's on sale. It's six extra multi-stage 'puzzles' each, but the real fun is in the core game.

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.
