Set in a mysterious and abstract sterile environment, Q.U.B.E. (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion) is a first-person puzzle game that challenges players to navigate each level by manipulating coloured cubes that surround them. There's little to go on as the game begins - the player is dropped into an all-white room with few instructions, and simply has to figure their way out. The tone of game changes as the player finds small and big alterations to their environment, supported by an original score, inviting each player to let their imagination take over as to where they might be. Through experimentation and discovery, players will progress through an ever-evolving series of cube puzzles that will challenge them with logic, physics, platforming.

A friend of mine gifted me this game 2 years ago, and I really enjoyed it. It wasn't so long, and it did not have a deep story (in fact it doesn't even have a story), but you enjoy multiple puzzles for every type of gamer, so you won't need to be creative to solve them.
Just like Portalpenguinfizzy | Dec. 28, 2013 | See all penguinfizzy's reviews »
Graphics: 9 - Q.U.B.E. has to be cube. Audio: 8 - Has quite nice soundtracks. Story: 4 - In Portal, there is a decent story. But in this game, there isn't. Controls: 8 - Quite easy to learn. This game is in first person and from the screen, you can see both of your hands. Lifespan: 3 - Lasts you for only a few hours unless you can't figure out how to play.
This Portal-like game needs serious work to it.
Portal-like thing. Good Thing.kwadracik | Nov. 13, 2013 | See all kwadracik's reviews »
Q.U.B.E (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion) is a first person logic game. Familiar to Portal? No. In Portal there was very good story, but there is no story in Q.U.B.E.
"So, what can i do in Q.U.B.E?" you ask. You can solve tests by manipulating blocks. It sounds bad, but it 's very addictive. Every 5-years-old computer can run this game. So maybe you should give it a chance?
A new kind of puzzle.daraya79 | Oct. 18, 2013 | See all daraya79's reviews »
This game sucked me for hours and hours. You are someone who waked up in some kind of sterile chamber and You have to get out of it. Chambers are built of blocks and designed like they were taken from hospital for insanes. This makes You feel more depressed and more motivated to get out of there. You can do that by solving puzzles somone created for You. First they are easy but farer You go, finding solution is harder. You can move blocks, jump on them, move entire chamber sections, and much, much more...
Game is very similar to Portal but it has it's own athmosphere... There are blocks, silence, You... and only one way out.
Great 3D puzzlingMorphysLaw | Oct. 8, 2013 | See all MorphysLaw's reviews »
This game offers some great 3D puzzling and introduces the various parts of its mechanics very well. It's essentially got no story, but gameplay and aesthetic-wise feels a bit like Portal. Don't let that comparison lead you to believe it's otherwise anything like Portal though! It's well-made, but different, and relatively short. It's worth the price, but some puzzles will really leave you figuring them out for a long time, which may cause some frustration if you're not usually the puzzling type. I know I had that problem. Greatly enjoyed the game, though.
