This game reminds me so much of 'Kula World' of the 90's. I really enjoyed playing it then . This is a much more updated environment. If you like strategy/ puzzle games then you will love this.

It’s kind of a generic puzzle game, I guess. You’ve got to move the ball to the end of the level, while traversing a maze of various traps, like ice, fire, spikes, sand, and all that sort of stuff. I usually like puzzle games at first, but once the difficulty increases, I quickly tire of them. And it was the same with this one.

It’s been a long time since I played a puzzle game that wasn’t a Flash game, so the modern graphics were quite nice.

I've played for a little over an hour today when I was frustrated and needed to think. Very stimulating and relaxing! Got me right out of the rut I was in. For the price, it's a nice little game to add to your collection for the puzzle lovers. Good break from all your fps and rpg's. Also perfect if you're seeking just a relaxing game in general.

I've been playing this game for YEARS now - it's one of those games I just chip-away at when I need a bit of a 'think'

The best part about it is that you can leave it for long periods, come back and still remember how to solve things! The puzzles guide you to their solution without ever making you feel "less smart" - there's no guesswork, the solution is always there and waiting for you

It's cracking game - if you like puzzles, you need to try it.

Enjoy games with any degree of intellectual engagement? If yes, then Puzzle Dimension is for you.

You need to collect sunflowers on a tiled map and then reach the exit portal. However, certain tiles can break, make you slide off the edge (ice tiles), or stop you in your tracks (sand tiles), which forces you to plan out your moves as you work toward your objectives.

If you decide to download the demo version, you only get 10 fairly simple puzzles. Don't let these puzzles give you the impression that the rest of the game is going to be straightfoward because the level of thinking required becomes much more involved as you progress through the game.

If you are looking for a top-notch puzzle game that cleverly uses three-dimensional space, Puzzle Dimension is definately the game for you. The puzzles are mindboggling and each one is both clever and unique. You're goal is simple: traverse the puzzle to collect all the sunflowers and get to the goal without falling infinitely, being spiked, roasted alive, or otherwise incapacitated.

The game creatively adds new mechanics as the levels get more and more difficult, and each add a whole new level (or should I say, a new set of levels, for each mechanic has its own group of levels focused on intorducing and using it) to the already deep puzzler that it is. The levels complement the mechanics well, and they are all challenging and fun to solve. I've finished about two thirds, and it never stops dropping new ideas and challenges on you.

The graphics are simple, and they do the job well. There are four options to choose from (all showcased in the trailer), so you can change how the game looks to your liking. In each texture, you can still easily tell the difference between the different types of tiles, even if it does take a little getting used to if you just switched. Music is also quite catchy with a nice retro-ish style to it.

The biggest issue with this game is the controls. This is a console port, and boy do you know it after a minute of rolling the ball around. Arrow keys for movement, okay. WASD for six-directional camera, I'll live. The jumping however, is very clunky. Once you hit space to jump, you cannot change the direction you are going. This means you have to time your jumps between the time you press an arrow key to the time you roll off the edge of the block. This certainly isn't a dealbreaker, and I stand by my reccomendation wholeheartedly, but this is easily my biggest gripe with the game. That and invisible platforms.

All in all, Puzzle Dimension is certainly worth the low price of admission, and if you can get it at one of the many times it is on sale, it's a steal. It is easily one of the best puzzle games I have played and one that uses 3-D space in ways most puzzle games don't bother to explore. At the very least try the demo. It will show you if you can stand the controls and how much this game has to offer.

Very ordinary puzzle game without anything special. Not bad deal for a dollar but realistically, the game doesn't offer anything that countless of puzzle games haven't done before.

Mac users - Not recommended. Do not buy this game. It is defective and full of graphical glitches.
PC users - Also not recommended for the fact that this company, Doctor Entertainment, just doesn’t give a crap about anything other than lining their pockets with your money.

Sorry for the long read ahead (feel free to skip to the bottom if you don’t have time). If I am writing a negative review, I’d want people to know exactly why since I don’t do this lightly.

I do not write negative reviews lightly. In fact, this is my first one and I’ve given Doctor Entertainment more than enough opportunities to address my concerns. Their lack of care towards maintaining any semblance of customer relations is abysmal.

This game is full of graphical glitches that makes it near unplayable. None of the texts are readable and makes the game very unenjoyable to say the least. As far as I can tell, this seems to be isolated to OSX but I am not the only user affected.

Someone on the forums had posted about this issue a year ago, in which the only response from the developer at the time was to send an email directly to them. I reached out to the developer via the provided email and did not hear anything at all for a week. I then sent a follow-up email that was still polite but more assertive which actually got me a response. I was assured that there was a real person there and that they would “check with someone about it.” Another week goes by and….nothing. I send another follow-up email asking for a status update and also linked them to the forum where more users have recently also reported the same issue. I urged them to post something on the forum to let people know they actually care and are looking into it, but they couldn’t even be bothered to do that. This was 2 weeks ago and I haven’t heard from them again. The bottom line is they’ve known about this glitch for over a year and have made no efforts at all to address the issue let alone fix it.

Now, I understand that some things just won’t get fixed whether it is due to a lack of resources, funds, or whatever. In that case, most companies would at least offer the option of a refund or an apology. All I wanted at this point was just to get some sort of a response. The lack of response is just rude on a personal level, and inexcusable on a professional one. I do have access to a PC at my house so I could theoretically still play this game, but my experiences with Doctor Entertainment are so sour at this point that I don’t even want to bother.

TLDR: NOT RECOMMENDED.
Bad glitchy unplayable game with no developer support. Taking your money is the only interaction with them you’ll get.

Interesting puzzle game, with a lot in common to Kula World. Upscales to 1440p nicely.

Very simple and straight forward, easy to control, and ends with a challenge. You're allowed to choose a direction when stationary, not while moving, and are charged with traversing courses filled with varied obstacles while picking up the required sunflowers, which then unlocks a gate through which you must exit to officially solve the puzzle. Through 100 levels the game builds to some difficulty; only one solution exists where in earlier levels you could wander without worry of destroying your exit path. And actually, though I said it ends with a challenge, puzzles 96-100 are an easy respite to bow out on, and 90-95 are the hardest.

Simple to learn, difficult to master; good stuff.

It doesn't really come as a surprise to know that the designer of Puzzle Dimension co-founded the development team of Kula World for the PlayStation.

The game play is very much like Kula World's. You navigate a ball around various stages picking up things (flowers, in this game's case) in order to move to the next level.

The levels are all quite smartly made, introducing new concepts and obstacles as you progress through the game in a timely manner. Being able to roll around on more than just the top of some levels is another neat feature from Kula World.

Overall, Puzzle Dimension is one of those nicer puzzle games on the market. Nothing overwhelmingly difficult, but provides enough challenge (and a decent aesthetic for an indie game) to make you feel good about yourself after beating a few levels.

It's definitely worth getting for the price of £1.99, especially if you enjoyed Kula World.
