About the Game

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.

I enjoyed this quirky little first-person puzzler. The puzzles ease you in gently, and build complexity until you are feeling pushed. Sadly it is a little short, and the ending a tad weak after you put yourself through all those challenges you don't even get a cake :(
In short: It's not quite Portal, but if you've run out of Portal and feel the itch for something on a similar vein, this is that game.

A decent first-person physics puzzle game, somewhat like Portal. However, this game does not have the personalities or voice acting or as much flavor as Portal. The puzzles aren't too hard. I liked the way it ended. You manipulate colored blocks in your environment, that can rotate or move in different directions. The learning curve is not too steep. Some of the areas in the game are fascinating but serve no other purpose but to look really cool.

Very fun game to play if you feel like sitting back and playing something more casual. Puzzles are fun and challenging, and the graphics are nice, and similar to Portal. The farther you get, the more you have to use your head. Some puzzles can seem pretty impossible at a first glance, but it really makes you think. Definitely recommend if you like to play something casual, and completely puzzle based.

This game sucked me for hours and hours. You are someone who woke up, in some kind of sterile chamber and You have to get out of it. Chambers are built of blocks and designed like they were taken from hospital for insanes. This makes You feel more depressed and more motivated to get out of there. You can do that by solving puzzles, somone created for You. First they are easy but farer You go, finding solution is harder. You can move blocks, jump on them, move entire chamber sections, and much, much more...

Game is very similar to Portal but it has it's own athmosphere... There are blocks, silence, You... and only one way out.

Interesting game thought, Thinking with cube. Good for those who like to give their mind a "Work-out".
