Great 3D puzzler

This is a fun little game from one of the members of the Portal team. The game is unique in that you change the physical properties of the world around you (make things heavier or lighter) and use that to solve problems and advance through the mansion of your relative. Later puzzles can be real headscratchers that will leave you immensely satisfied once you've solved them. Recommend this for anybody who enjoys 3D puzzles.

Portal's cousin? ... Maybe

Sebastai | Aug. 15, 2013 | See all Sebastai's reviews »

It's a good game, with a lot of puzzles to solve. You can not compare this game with portal because they are different games, but if you like the subject matter of these puzzle games, it is one of the best games in the genre that you can find on the market at present, I would definitely recommend.

Get it if you like first person puzzles

Portal is obviously the measuring stick for first person puzzles, but be warned that these 2 games are not very similar gameplay wise (despite the similarities in camera view). QC does not have the unique atmosphere or storyline that Portal was so good at. It is generic and cartoony; generally nothing to shout about.

However, QC puzzles are arguably as clever as Portal's, and while the consistency of level qualities vary throughout the game, they made up for it in terms of quantity. There's a lot of levels to play here and it rarely gets repetitive.

While Portal keeps the gameplay extremely simple (only 2 portals and jump) and let's the puzzle speak for themselves, QC is more complex. You learn new abilities throughout the game, and you need to learn to switch between them at the right time in addition to maneuvering yourself around the level. Therefore be warned, despite its cartoony appearance, i feel that this is a more difficult game than Portal and it's not suitable for young kids. Some later puzzles are very challenging and really push your patience and platforming skills to the limit. I personally enjoyed the challenge but it's definitely something to consider.

DLCs for a platform game

lok0812 | June 21, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »

If you enjoyed the base game chances are you will like this as well. One downsize about the season pass is even though it comes with the content DLCs, the DLCs itself are really horribly made. Game style is still the same but this time, no voice over what so ever. You are still doing the timing jump "puzzle" instead of a real puzzle that challenges you to solved, none of that appear in the DLCs. If you are looking for a platforming games then this is it but if you thinking of Portal type games, you might want to look elsewhere since the "puzzles" in the base game and the DLCs are solvable by just looking at them first time, the only challenge is perfect the platform jumps to get to your goal and if you messed up then you get to start all over again.

Portal - it is NOT..

wfosnot | June 3, 2013 | See all wfosnot's reviews »

I bought this game because the creator also created Portal - which is a fantastic game. I had higher hopes for this game. It was cute, but not as funny as Portal. The puzzles were interesting, but the story seemed to lack something. That something that draws you in... and puzzles that you HAVE to solve (stay up all night and figure out) -- didn't feel this way with this game. Maybe after steeping away from Portal for awhile and coming back to this game will make it feel more original and fun. Also, unlike Portal, some of the puzzles were very frustrating because of the game mechanics -- I knew how to solve the puzzle, but got stuck in the mechanics of making it happen.

Excellent puzzler

A different puzzle game, where you must switch modes to pass every level and you must really focus to beat. It makes you laugh too! Really great dialogues, all you really need to have a good time, humor and challenging levels to beat.

Great game

lpmafiota | Oct. 19, 2012 | See all lpmafiota's reviews »

As a fan of the Portal series I had huge expectations of this game and honestly it surpassed them. The gameplay mechanics are incredibly fun, the story is interesting, the humor is on par with Portal's, the graphics are incredible and the music and sound effects are top notch. The only thing that kinda bothered me about it was the rather hard to pull off at times first person platforming.

Love it!

AlejoPapapipa | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all AlejoPapapipa's reviews »

This game is amazing, very clever puzzles that uses a system of 4 dimensions to solve them, every dimension produce different reactions in the environment and in the elements around you, this makes it very dynamic and unique. So far it's been a great game for me, if you like portal or qube you will like this game too.

Good game

Zinzun | Sept. 2, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »

Good puzzle game,if you played Portal or Qube there are similar mechanics.The graphic style is like a cartoon but the "heart" of the production is the opportunity to cgange between four dimensions to solve the puzzles and retrieve your uncle.Give it a try,but before buying it make sure to download the demo version from Steam,because the game has some problems to start,that you can solve editing ad .INI file.

Very good game. Great concept.

aqnickdan3 | June 25, 2012 | See all aqnickdan3's reviews »

Quantum Conundrum is a very unique game; it has humor, a very distinct graphics style, and a great variety of puzzles. The game teaches you how to work puzzles in many different paths and keeps you rallied from start to finish. Your environment can easily become your friend, or become your enemy, how you go about solving puzzles is what judges how much you enjoy the game. This game is a great contender to Portal, I would say it is even better. This is a definite must buy for those who enjoyed Portal 1 and Portal 2

Great Game, very different puzzler.

Devil_Mish | June 25, 2012 | See all Devil_Mish's reviews »

I personally think this game is good, it has alot of great characters and for the price it's probably worth picking up, however I'm appalled that they have pre-planned DLC, however the way the market is nowadays you can't really blame them... Cough Capcom Cough But I highly recommend this game if you were a fan of portal like I was, for the price of this game, it actually has amazing graphics. If you're a fan of the cartoony art style then I recommend this to you. Honestly, I'd go with the season pass too, just purely because the dlc's could be £8 each, best to play it safe right?

Quantum Conundrum

nibblemonkey | June 24, 2012 | See all nibblemonkey's reviews »

Quantum Conundrum is a puzzle game where you have to shift between 4 different dimensions to solve various puzzles (With a little bit of platforming too) from a first person perspective. The game has simple controls the are easier to understand, the four dimensions you can swap between are swapped through using Q,E,1 and 3 and as these are put right next to the buttons to move (W,A,S,D) this is easy to learn to do. The puzzles in the game start of simple (Such as having to make everything lighter and then go back once you have placed a safe on a button) but end up more challenging (Such as having to throw something and then slow down time so that you can ride it over a gap) where some platforming elements come into play. One of the main annoying elements of this game are in the graphics settings as the in game menus only allow you to change the resolution, for anything else you have to go digging through files until you find the config file so that you can change the settings. This was mainly a problem for me as my system couldn't cope with the default settings so I had to manually change them. This version comes with the two DLC (That haven't been released yet) so that you can get more from the game Apart from the graphics settings issue this is a really good puzzle game with interesting puzzles that will keep you entertained for a while.

Puzzle games taken into another dimention

DrHouse | June 24, 2012 | See all DrHouse's reviews »

This is a puzzle game like you have never seen before. It has new elements and game mechanics never seen in any other game. The visual style fits perfectly within the rest of the game. The audio and the music are there when they are needed.

But what makes this game unique is the gameplay mechanics, with 5 different dimensions you have too switch between with the Shift Device, which gives so much room for puzzles and fun.

If you loved puzzle games like Portal you'll love this game too.

A fun fluffy puzzle game from the Portal devs

Gh0st233 | June 22, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »

Quantum Conundrum is a pretty fun little puzzle game, and it comes right from the developers of the original Portal. The game has very nice cartoonish graphics and the gameplay is amazing. At the start of the game, you get a sort of a glove that lets you change dimensions on the fly. You can change the dimension to one where everything is fluffy, and you can manipulate time.

Quantum Conundrum is a very interesting game, would recommend it on a sale.
