Om detta spel

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.

Very short but fun puzzle-platformer (mostly puzzles though). Not a very complex game, it has nice, clear visuals, enjoyable ambient music and a decent variety of puzzle types. There's really not much to say about it though that's by no means a negative. Could have been longer so I would say wait for a sale but evidently, you can't buy this version anymore.

I have nothing to say about the director's cut version, other than putting a "story" into it is a bad idea. The vague, silent nature of the game is nice and obviously an intentional direction that they're now going back on, which is disappointing. A voiceover wouldn't make this more enjoyable.

I enjoyed this game. Nice ambient wich slightly changes during the game, fine soundtrack, not-so-easy puzzles. I did not get the ending but the rest is fine.

The biggest drawback is that "first person" view is not necessary nere. Most of the puzzles are hanging on the walls and floors so you do not really use your "body" to solve them, not like in Portal.

Anyways, I'd recommend it to those, who love fpp.

Looking good so far, interesting concept. I think it's unfair calling it Portal with blocks, as some are doing. I'm on scene 4 out of 9 at the moment and the puzzles are increasing in difficulty. Really interested to see what comes next. My only complaint at the moment is some extreme screen tearing, even with V-sync on.

Puzzle game but instead of portals, you use cubes. Different cubes do different things, trying to escape the facility you're in kinda like portal.

7.5/10 Best Portal rip-off on the market

No seriously, it's worth a try. If you like 3D puzzle games, this one is pretty damn good. Puzzles are intricate yet visually appealing and the game offers a variety of mechanics to progress from one stage to the next. Backed by solid visuals, it makes for an enjoyable game, no doubt.

If you're a fan of puzzles, this is a great game for you.
When it comes to story, this game has not much to offer, unfortunately. It has also a lack of size, it takes about 3-4 hours to play through. But those hours are definitely worth it. The game offers content through the entire gametime.
If you want a quick perception of the game, imagine Portal without the characters, story or portals. It may sound like Q.U.B.E is a lot less of a game, but it is worth it.

If you're insecure, buy it on sale. Then it would definitely be worth the money.

As a competent, if short, Portal knock-off, the one thing QUBE has going for it is the atmosphere and the ending, which in its tasteful understatedness is quietly wonderful.

That said, if you haven't already, play Portal and Antichamber first and only get this if you're truly in need of a first-person puzzle game "fix".

Q.U.B.E. is a fairly competent puzzle/platform "Portal-like" that is let down by occasionally depending on a dreaded combination of both the programmed physics and RNG to be compliant. Hoping a certain block flips into the right configuration or that the timing on a certain impact was perfect is not good design.

It was when I finally reached a room that required me to move four blocks back and forth using toggle-enabled magnetised walls to get them into the right orientation to turn on four switches, that I sighed and let out an emphatic "♥♥♥♥ this ♥♥♥♥".

It's not a bad game but I haven't got the patience for the level of precision required especially when there is the potential for chaotic results. Not worth buying, especially with games such as Antichamber and Portal (1 & 2) about, but it's not the worst bundle fodder that could end up in your library.

BE AWARE, THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE ORIGINAL Q.U.B.E. IT HAS A DIRECTOR'S CUT NOW WHICH HAS A DIFFERENT SOUNDTRACK AND STORY!


QUBE is a good but not incredible puzzle experience. It's fun, it's not too stressful (none of the puzzles are timed or will kill you), it's got a good mostly ambient soundtrack, it's not too hard (there's a couple stumpers in there, but they're not too bad if you experiment a bit), and it has some nice visuals. Oh, and there's a few secrets you can hunt out in the game. Now, there's good and there's bad. The game focuses on the puzzles, and setting you up so you can work your way through them in a challenge of wits. The bad is that it lacks a story. The ending kind of explains what you were up to, but not really. Another downfall is that the game is short-lived. Yeah, it lasts a few hours and yeah it has time-trials to check out, but it still feels like there could have been more. One more downfall is that only the last 3 sectors (5-7) are really challenging. Sectors 1 and 2 are an absolute breeze. Sector 3 and 4 make you pay attention. Sectors 5-7 make you trully sit down and work at the puzzles. Finally, I feel like they actually should have fleshed out some of the areas better. Most areas don't seem to have much of a purpose.

So in conclusion, is it a game worth playing? I feel so. It's one of those things that wraps you in for a little while, and is a worthwhile experience, but not something with tons of replay value or background story to keep you vested in it past your playthrough. Still, I'm not a huge puzzle player, and this game made puzzling fun! 7/10

This is basically a first-person puzzle-solving game. The character/you are in a maze-like series of rooms and you need to find your way out of each room and into the next. Your means of doing this are a pair of glove that allow you to (telekinetically?) manipulate your environment. The entire strucutre seems to be composed entirely of square blocks. Most of these are white and inert. However, a few are colored red, blue, yellow, green, and purplish pink. These colored blocks each have their own ability and can be manipulated from a distance using your gloves. For instance, yellow blocks form stairs, blue acts as a springboard, red forms ledges, etc. There are a few other tools/features you'll encounter along the way. Using what you find, you need to progress from room to room through the maze.
Anyhow, that's the gist of it. Overall, I thought it was a really fun game. Some of the puzzles are laughably easy while others are maddeningly difficult. Most of one level is dimly lit or even dark in places. Overcoming the challenges brings a sense of satisfaction, especially since the game doesn't give much in the way of tutorial...you, the player, just have to experiment and figure it out as you go. My only complaint was that the game is pretty short -- I finished the whole thing in about 5 hours. But judging by the many achievements I've yet to get, I'm sure I missed a lot on the first play through, so hopefully there will be decent replayability. Long story, short: It's a fun game, and definitely worth buying (especially if you can get it on sale or as part of a bundle or something). Enjoy.

This puzzle game is pretty damn good, and you should definitely give it a go. No questions asked. Unless you disliked portal for some reason that is.

Excellent simple puzzle game. No tricks or gimmicks in this one. The puzzles are straight forward and right in front of you but still a great challenge. The difficulty curve is a perfect gradual curve. Each puzzle is ever so slightly harder than the last and they all build off of eachother. Your brain will start hurting in the second half but you never feel like a puzzle is "IMPOSSIBLE!!!". All that with clean simplistic smooth visuals and sounds.

This was actually my second time playing through this game and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Though, some good amount of time had passed. I had forgotten nearly all the puzzle's exact solutions but also retained enough to make the playthrough far shorter than average. So don't pay attention to my short 3hr playtime as it isn't indicitive of the game's actual length. All that said, the base game doesn't really have any replay value beyond finding two hidden areas for imaginary achievements (though both hidden areas have their charm). I do not own the DLC that involves time trials of some sort so I can't speak to the value, replay value, and entertainment of that.

In all, the base game is a good mind workout that doesn't ever make you feel cheated. While lacking any immediate replay value it does present a challenge again years down the line. Recommended on sale or in a bundle for the best value.
