Description

When you’re dropped off to visit your uncle, you notice something’s wrong. He’s not there to greet you. There was an explosion just as you arrived. And the house seems to be even weirder than you remember. It’s up to you to find—and ultimately rescue—your uncle. Use his newest invention, the Interdimensional Shift Device (or IDS), to switch between five different dimensions and solve puzzles. Switch dimensions in real time, work your way through the crazy complex mansion, and rescue your uncle!


Key Features:

  • Engaging Puzzle Gameplay: Using the Inter–Dimensional Shift Device, players will shift to and from various dimensions to manipulate the world around them.

  • Experience New Dimensions: Each dimension the player gains access to becomes a valuable asset to manipulate objects around the manor. Move between the Normal, Fluffy, Heavy, Slow-Motion and Reverse Gravity Dimensions on the fly.

  • Immersive, Interactive Environment: The look and feel of each dimension is completely distinct. When shifting to the Fluffy Dimension, everything in the room becomes a soft and cuddly version of its previous state.

  • Unique Art Style and Humor: The Professor’s manor and all the items within it have a unique style, but players should also be on the lookout for humorous touches scattered throughout.

like Portal, with a twist. needs work.

first off, it took forever to try and get this game to run smoothly. wasn't sure if that was just me or if the game just isn't optimized fully. but, when i finally got it going, wow was i impressed. it did feel a lot like portal. one room then the next then the next, but it wasn't at the same time. instead of portals, you use dimensions which radically change how things act in the world. it makes for some interesting a difficult puzzles.

the games engine, while innovative, is very slow (at least for me) if i had a more powerful pc, i'm sure it would have been better,but i can get portal 2 to run like butter, and this was more like a thick chunky poo.... i did get all the way through it, however, and the difficulty of the game with all its weird mind bending puzzles was well worth the effort.

this game would probably be better experienced on a console or better PC, but should defiantly be experienced.

Adorable in its own way

The best way to enjoy this game is to probably not compare it to Portal. Because it is not Portal.

And yet, comparisons to Portal just won't end.

Take Portal and remove all portals. Then replace those portals with dimension shifts. So, think not with portals. Think with dimensions.

Yeah.. Maybe this is Portal. Only without the Portals.

In any case, it is an adorable game that is worth a play-through if you like relaxing puzzle games. There's quite a lot of gameplay here too despite the simple mechanics.

Cured an itch...

After finally getting to play Portal 2, I needed some more physic based FPS puzzlery and Quantum Conundrum looked like it would tick the box.

Over a couple of evenings I became totally engrossed in the Uncles house of puzzles and enjoyed the quite humourus story. It may seem childish by nature (especially graphically), but do not let this put you off. It suits the game perfectly and believe me, can be quite a head scratcher.

I do remember certain elements being a bit frustrating to solve, from a gameplay stand point, but overall a pleasure to playthrough.

Though this never elevates to the same standard of Portal 1 & 2 it is none the less a pleasant gaming experience with a few nice touches unique to itself. Little ike being one of them...

BONUS: I was impressed with the implementation of the Alienware lighting. Each ability on the glove was assigned a colour and when in use, the lights on my m14x lit up that colour. A very nice touch -but not for everyone.

Not even close to Portal

RicBac | Aug. 12, 2013 | See all RicBac's reviews »

This is i puzzler fps like Portal. But the similarities ends there. Sure there is a tiny bit of humor a some puzzles are entertaining. The thing that doesn't quite make it for me is the atmosphere. It's just dull. And the story isn't that exciting either.

If ypu are looking for another Portal then you will probably be disappointed. If you are looking for a fps-puzzler and it's on sale, then give it a try.

Fun but a Bit Trite

bwrussell | July 8, 2013 | See all bwrussell's reviews »

This is a game a lot of people, including me, were pretty exited about when it was announced. Unfortunately it falls a bit short of the expectations it set. It just feels like the developers were to concentrated on making a game like portal but different and as a result it comes across as forced. Go look at the descriptions for Portal 1 & 2, nowhere does it talk about how funny the game is. As a result it catches you off guard and is quite hilarious at times. On the other hand you have QC which makes sure you know their trying to be funny which takes away the edge, the surprise. I eventually just turned the volume for the voices down. I feel part of the problem is it seems the dev fell into the trap of having a child main character causing the tone, and subsequently the humor, to tend towards childish. Everything about the game just feels like it was made for 8-10 year olds. All that being said it is still probably worth a play. The mechanics do make for some interesting puzzles and it is different enough from other games to be of value. Just don't expect it to be comparable to the gems that are Portal 1 & 2.
