Six Sides of the World 1.3 update

August and holidays are gone, it’s time to come back to work, prototyping the next Cybernetik Design game, but also it’s time to invest some efforts in Six Sides of the World because there are always errors hidden, unnoticed, and that’s the case.

Next you can find this little patch changelog:

  • Fixed some minor bugs in the interface.
  • Added some missing translations.

We found some glitches when the player clicked too fast on the menus causing a flickering effect on the interface. It’s not important, it does not causes any trouble to play the game, but once seen, can’t be unseen, and we’ve been looking for what causes it and it’s hopefully fixed.

Also, some parts of the translations of the game from the last narrative update were missing for some reason (surely a copy & paste issue, it’s the devil’s work, you always rely on it and you miss some sentence there and there). Now it’s fixed and all the texts of the game are complete.

On the other hand, we ran through some sales and bundles yet, and we’ve been watching your streams, reading your reviews and there’s a common point, the price. That’s because we are lowering it a little bit more. Have any friends who loves puzzle games and 5 bucks on your pocket? Gift them Six sides of the World for $4.99.

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.

Six Sides of the World is an exciting puzzle game that might draw you in with its story. The music fit perfectly with each level and theme of the game and its quite challenging, if you up for it. There are new mechanics and obstacles awaiting for you as you continue further through the game. As you go through the game, you will discover more of the story of the ultimate space journey that you must go on. The graphics are stunning and the background of each level are gorgeous. The game might be kind of expensive, but I believe I got my money's worth with this awesome game!

Its actually a pretty decent ouzzle game. I got it in the summer sale 2016 when it was 9p, and its honestly a damn good puzzle game that got me thinking in some places. Probably not worth the nearly £6 for it, but if its on sale I'd say givve it a try.

This is a collection of spatial logic puzzles built on floating cubes. You trigger gates, lasers, and other pieces of the environment to collect a key crystal and get to the exit. Sounds simple, but because you are working on six separate surfaces and going back and forth between them, it gives your spatial awareness abilities a workout. The puzzles are for the most part fair and logical, with interesting twists introduced on a regular basis. I ultimately spent 8 hours playing through all the levels (some have multiple solutions, and you have to find each solution to unlock all the levels), and greatly enjoyed it. The story isn't much, but the puzzles themselves more than make up for it. There are a couple that have timing aspects (flooding, lasers that fry you), but even those are pretty fair, if occasionally frustrating. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for puzzles that deal with planning and forethought.

This is a good puzzle game, with a good balance and nice to play. The difficulty increases with time when new elements come to play, that makes this game interesting and engaging.
Story line is bad delivered - short text to read after every level. It's not a good reward for solving a puzzle. Short video clips or comics would do much better. And I believe that this game could be much more interesting, if you can play it using a first person view like in Portal. That would justified a price, which is to high, but there is no reason not to buy this game on a sale. You can get this game really cheap 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.

Six Sides of the World is simple in design yet complexly brilliant as the stakes always change in small ways. The game introduces a surprisingly large variation of challenges that never become too complex to frustrate, nor do they ever get dull or stale. As you progress, new features are added, modified, and the scale grows, multiplying the amount of planets to explore while the style and shape of these tiny worlds also change.

The game certainly keeps things fresh for a long duration and does a good job at bringing in new elements to further the challenge. The only thing to note is that the game can be a slight pain when levels become bigger. Yet there are factors to help with this, such as color coordinated portals, and being able to freely rotate the screen around the planet you’re on helps to reduce confusion.

The game can be a rather enjoyable experience whether you’re playing for few minutes or over an hour or two.

An abstract art Puzzler with poetic narrative, Six Sides of the World uses a planetary theme to create a linear flow of gameplay in an abstract world.
For those who enjoy a mind-numbing grueling challenge, the Devs at Cybernetik Design have created a Rubik’s Cube type of Spatial Logic challenge.

Game Mechanics:
The first star system is a lighter challenge to help you “figure out” what in this world (or maybe out of this world) you are doing. You begin with a heavy sense of cognitive dissonance, because there are only buttons, triggers, timers, and switches… along with lasers and other hazards, on a cube floating in space. You are in a little fish ship, and at first you just explore your surroundings. Randomly standing on different switches transports you to one other of the 6 sides of this floating cube. Soon, you start to draw conclusions about how things work. Before you know it, you’ve completed all the planets in this first star system, and are on to the next system.

There is no scoring system. You win by simply completing all the planets, some in more than one way. The achievements fall rapidly. I achieved the first 6 in an hour and a half. But, the difficulty ramps up quickly, after that. This will not be a game you will finish quickly, so you will definitely get your money’s worth on time in game.

The game is played with simple clicks of the mouse to move around the cube. You can rotate the cube with a click and drag of either mouse button. The electronic gadgets, doors, and switches remind me of Stealth, Inc, where you use mechanics to complete levels in a similar fashion.

Narrative and Graphics:
With an abstract poetry and art, between levels you capture bits and pieces of the story of the mysterious Maigo the Puzzle Lord’s journey; the creator of these cubic planets. The story is intriguing, but exists mainly as a backdrop to the challenging puzzles.

With the space theme and electronic music, the game can be compared to Energy Balance, another sadistic puzzler with abstract poetry set in space. But, where Energy Balance will fry your brains with spatial equations, Six Sides of the World will have you as confused as a session of yoga, where you’ve made so many twists and turns that when the master calls for you to bring your left foot forward over your right shoulder to touch your nose, you have to pause to think, “Now, where did I last have my left foot?”

I don’t have a lot of time in game yet, but it’s been taken in several short sessions because of the heavy challenge. So, because I’m sure there are those out there who may be able to whizz past me, I thought I’d go ahead and give you a heads up to this incredible puzzler. But, beware… it is not for the timid.

Pros:
*Calming and analytical
*No reading required/ poetry is parallel to the puzzle worlds
*Graphics are eye pleasing and poetry is lovely
*Bracing challenge, no hand-holding


Cons:
*No drawbacks that I can see/ but it is a tough game

Six Sides of the World will have you zipping around a cubic galaxy to the tune of electronic beats and poetry. If you enjoyed mechanical games like Stealth, Inc or Vessel, then this puzzler is for you.

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.

Very nice Puzzle Game, except for Tau ceti (Because that solar system i just like a tutorial of course) the game is a real Mind Blowing, as soon as you open the second solar system the puzzles become hard and as long as you keep going they become even harder and that for me is the BEST.

Gonna try complete all 50 level and post on youtube, I hope you like it.

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

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.

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.

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.
