About This Game

SIX SIDES OF THE WORLD – ALL HAIL THE PUZZLE LORD!

“Six Sides of the World” is a puzzle videogame that takes you into an intergalactic journey through different star systems riddled with brain-racking challenges.

THE ULTIMATE MATCH: YOUR BRAINS vs SCI-FI HAZARDS

Spatial orientation, logic and pure wit will be your weapons to go through the different cube shaped planetary systems. Each level will bring the threats to a whole new level, adding all kinds of sci-fi hazards: from portals to laser beams.
You will need to carefully analyze each cubic planet to understand its dangers and potential solutions. Rushing might lead you to death: it’s all about breaking down each puzzle and finding the right pace.

EXPLORE A VAST GALAXY SYSTEM

Six Sides of the World presents you a series of star systems to be explored. Each one is comprised by different puzzles that introduce new and more challenging mechanics. But most interesting feature of this is that these star systems can be navigated linearly, following a easier predetermined path; or you can make a detour if you are brave enough. Some of the puzzles will present more than one possible solution, enabling the player to achieve a more difficult victory, that will unlock new extra puzzles.

FROM TEST OF WIT TO ULTIMATE HEADACHE!

The freedom of exploration in Six Sides of the World let you set the difficulty: the linear path takes an intelligent and resolutive mind; but the additional solutions to some of the puzzles require a true sense of understanding of each puzzle. And that’s not all! These solutions will lead you to extra puzzles that are capable of driving you insane. It is a smart way of letting the player to set the difficulty by him/herself: going for the extra solution is a way of asking for bigger challenges. And the extra levels are the biggest challenges you can face! There is a difference between understanding new mechanics and getting to their true core. Are you ready?

ALL HAIL THE PUZZLE LORD!

Maigo is an explorer who’s about to discover something far bigger than he expects. As he navigates through space, facing increasingly difficult puzzles, he starts to understand he’s tapping over something transcendent. Some questions arise: who has created all these worlds? What motivates this intergalactic architect? There’s an utter plan beyond all this? It is a test? A mean to protect something? In seek of the truth Maigo will have to overcome all the challenges to meet this kind of… PUZZLE GOD.

FEATURES

  • A galaxy of puzzles: Dozens of creative, defying and engaging puzzles set in cubic planetary systems
  • Choose your way to victory: Non-linear progression with different difficulty levels. Follow the easy levels to end the game, explore the optional ones to face a real challenge.
  • Easy to control, hard to master:Easy and intuitive controls, playable with the mouse and only one button.
  • Otherworldly music: Soundtrack composed by Carlos Viola.

This is a good puzzle game, good balance and nice to play. The difficulty increases with time when new elements come to play, what makes this game interesting and engaging.
Story line is bad delivered - short text to read after every level. This is not a good reward for solving puzzle, a short video clip or comic would be much better. And I believe that this game could be much more interesting, if you can play it using first person view like is Portal. Price would be justified that way, because is to high - there is no reason not to buy this game on a sale, you can get it really cheaply and have fun for about 10h gameplay. Good game: 7/10

This game... Is far better than I was expecting. Challenging but doable puzzles, good controls, decent graphics, fitting atmospheric music, and lots of mechanics to wrap your head around make it a great experience for a puzzle game.
My only main complaint is the plot, or what passes for one in this game. Every time you complete a level, a couple rather poorly localized sentences on a black background are shown. They're always some vague line about how the character is confused about what is going on... and that's basically it. These screens add nothing to the game, and in my opinion, it would be far better off without this clumsy attempt at a narrative.
Something else I should mention is that some of the puzzles tend to get very lengthy and tedious, especially considering that in levels with two exits, you have to play through the whole thing again to get the second one.
The game kept me hooked, though. Recommended, especially if you're a fan of puzzle games.

A very nice little puzzle-game, nicely designed, well presented, with a nice visual style, good controls, and a great soundtrack. The storyline isn't much to write home about, but if that's a problem then what are you doing playing a logic-puzzle game for its story in the first place??

I only bought this game because it was 9p on the market! :) However, it actually turned out to be a very enjoyable and worthwhile game. Thoroughly reccomend it, even at full price, to those who enjoy 3d puzzles.

Writing this review after just finishing world one this review is my first impressions of the game.(AKA Dont be turned off by the low play time)

Lets start with the plot. While it is there it isnt really gripping me, but it is still there and I do care enough to see it through. I think a big problem with the plot in this game is how its delivered. Plain text on a black background. While that isn't bad per say, it does make me care less as it feel like an afterthought instead of a big part of the game. A voice over may have helped or maybe even a more dynamic background. Its delivery is also lackluster. Instead of any attempt at making the dialog of the plot dynamic it is just there.

Another problem with the plots delivery is the grammar. It's clear that english is not the creators first language as there are consistently areas of where it is wrong. That is not to say it's bad however. It till gets the point across and it is only small mistakes, so I have to give props there.

Next up is the music. To me music in a game makes it or breaks it, alongside gameplay(more on that later). The music in this game is in my opinion, where this game gets the hole in one. The main menu music is a really good track and I could honestly listen to it all day, its that good. There are also some steller tracks in the levels too, so if you don't want the game, at least give the soundtrack a listen.

Now for the gameplay and more importently, the puzzles. Keep in mind I have only played the first world so it most likely gets more difficult in the later levels(I'll edit this review when I compleate the game on if thats true). The first world definitely eases you into the game, with the last level being what I would consider the first major puzzle, while also making it relatively easy.

Overall would I considert this game worth the £6 price tag? No. Would I consider the game worth getting on sale? Yes. Its a small game that manages to be fun despite its shortcommings and a good timewaster while your wanting for some mates to come over or your food to be done. I give it a 6/10.

A very well made puzzle game. Easy controls. Great sound and visuals. Mechanics of the game are easy to pick up. The first few levels are fairly easy, but the difficulty does go up fast. A logical brain and a little patience is a must. I'm currently about a third of the way through the game and some of the levels are really testing me, but I am enjoying the challenge. If you have a logical brain and like a mental challenge, I would recommend this game for you. Especially if it is in a Steam sale.

This is a fun puzzle game and very cheap at the moment. I think I actually earnt more from selling the cards than this game cost. Definitely recommended.

https://youtu.be/ckf5QPMkrgw

The basic gameplay starts simple enough, move around the cube until reaching the exist wormhole. However, the difficulty increases to a challenging level, without becoming impossible (at least so far!). The puzzles are fairly short most that about a minute to complete when the correct path is known. Although, many of the levels took quite a few attempts before working it out. Nicely the game never rushes the player, there is no timer, and often there are places to stop and plan out further actions. There are a number of levels, and some choice in which way to go and bonus level.

There are many nice touches in this game. I feel that some effort has been put into making it look and play well. I never felt trapped in a deadend, there always seemed to be some way for me to try moving forward (except when running in lasers). There is a story, but it can be ignored (as I did).

I'm about a quarter of the way through and will definitely be playing more. Good gameplay, challenging (but not impossible), a sense of achievement, good graphics = highly recommended, especially at super cheap sale or bundle prices.

Very pleasant puzzle game with interesting gaming mechanisms and nice graphics. Pretty addictive. Got it for a few cents but would have actually agreed to pay more. You can't go wrong with that one.

Great, fun game. Nice puzzle, gotta have a brain to play though. Not worth the full price in my opinion, but it is on sale for a coupla quid then definately get it. The art style is great. Gameplay is simple and the puzzles are engaging. The difficulty increases and there is loads of different things that are added as you go along. Well thought out puzzles. The only disadvantage would be e fact that when progressing through levels a message is displayed every time, which is like the storyline, I guess, but when you wanna do levels fast it slows the progression from one level to another down. If the levels would automatically play, that would be amazing.

I rate 8/10
