Some of the physics puzzle levels can be beaten by just doing the same thing over and over again because the physics engine is so poor.

One of the achievements was updated to be impossible without modifying the game's files.

I rarely see a game ask for admin privileges - I don't suspect foul play, but it irks me out every time.

There is no button to simply undo your puzzle solution attempt without wiping everything you just made. Why? It's not making figuring out the solution any harder, it's making it tedious to paint dozens of tiles again to try a solution with a slight variable.

Somehow even the story manages to ♥♥♥♥ me off because the main character is just trying to chew on everything including paint (he's hungry - that's the extent of his personality), and everyone else is a complete jerkwad who doesn't appreciate this kid doing this for them. Duh, of course it's meant for comedic purposes, but for me it's not funny, it's just slapping me in the face for having the audacity to play this thing in the first place. It's the game's characters genuinely treating me like trash for saving their lives.

And every time you fail, you hear the main character make the disappointed, bratty sound of your own ears excreting. You desperately try to hit the retry-button to stop him from making that sound but it's always too late. I ended up muting the entire game and listening to conspiracy theorists on YouTube. It was an improvement.

The game wasn't fun. It was challenging at times, but very repetitive.

It's a good basic puzzle game. Worht a few bucks for a few hours of fun zolving puzzles. The later levels can get a bit annoying as they require trail and error to solve and every time you try it makes you start the level over again even though you'd only want to change one or two things.

Over all the game is fairly easy so making you redo whole levels isn't a huge issue but one I certainly hope they fix if they ever make another game like this.

It's easy to play, to control and you can enjoy it to relax. Game's sound is not very interested. Some challenges are easy to pass, but others are hard, a lot of achievements to unlock.

Great game, if you like puzzles and challenges, this game is for you. Try to do it without looking at guides or watching walkthrough. Some levels are difficult, some are tedious but all of them are logical, just be calm and think outside of the blocks. No pun intended ;) 100% worth the money!!

"Paint the blocks and they don't drop"
Just a brilliant 3D Puzzle game. Over 100 levels of fun. A dreamy soundtrack. Nice cubicle graphics. And lots of thinking. Use different paints with special abilities (red for floating, gold for floodfill, green for elastic and blue for solid blocks) They are being unlocked during the game and make the puzzles sometimes even harder.
But it's still fun. First you paint the blocks then you push the button and you see immediatly the result. Sometimes you must use the different colored blocks as hooks or bolts. The exclamation sign (!) levels are extra hard. Aim is to prevent the houses falling into the abyss.

Besides some little bugs (a gamecache verify caused a savegame wipe and the last update made an achievement broken) is Ubinota a very good game.

This is a fascinating puzzle game that is partially undermined by a middling user interface and missing feature.

The concept is creative - paint blocks to anchor houses and keep them from falling out of the sky. There are different blocks with different abilities (red ones float, green ones are bendy, etc.), and you have a limited amount of each color. The puzzles start out fairly easy, but quickly become mind-bending. I was able to solve all but one on my own; unfortunately I'm not seeing a guide to get me past that one, although it's thankfully a bonus.
The game is strong, but it could be better with one thing: the ability to step back to just before you tested your solution so you don't have to redo every puzzle from scratch every attempt. That probably added an hour to the 5 hours it took me to finish. Without that frustration, the ability to experiment more freely would greatly improve the game. The ambiance and story are cute, the puzzles creative and always providing new twists. If it were just a little more friendly to the player, it would be perfect, instead of just very good. (also, the physics of the drop seem to be a little random; sometimes doing the exact same thing twice would have completely different results. A little annoying, but not too bad).

The mechanics are great, the soundtrack is phenomenal, the design is unique, and the game is simply beatiful. I usually get frustrated playing puzzle games, but the music gives off the most peaceful vibes that turn my frustration into relaxation. It's amazing how this works. Definitely worth playing!

Pre-Release Review
Posted: March 5, 2015
In this installment of Indie Investigations, we take a look at Ubionta by Rota Team. It's a puzzle game, and as such I spend a lot of this video frustrated. Artwork is okay, music is very zen, but the gameplay leaves a little to desired. My verdict: It's okay. Watch the video and find out why!

My Quick Look of Ubinota:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgNi0Xj73ho

The story is there is a civilization in the clouds, made possible by using paint that can fix the clouds in space. As the levels progress you're given more and more types of paint colors that need to properly anchor to the correct fixed clouds.

It's almost like solving multiple mazes in a 3D space. Extremely relaxing and zen-like. Well executed.

Awesome puzzle game.
Haven't seen such a nice puzzle for a long time.
And it has a very unique puzzle concept. It is reeeeally fun to play.

The goal is to paint the block in such a way so that the houses doesn't fall.
There are six kind of paint which make the game more fun.

All levels are well made and entertaining.
It also has nice and easy achievements. All achievements have a clear description of how to unlock it.
And it comes with a well made story. There aren't many puzzle games come with story.

The bad is...
It has 1 impossible achievement, but you can do something about it. Find how to unlock it in discussion.
Unfortunately it doesn't have trading cards. I hope they will add it in the future.
