  • DIG Deep is a game like Astro Miner but you are digging a hole, you can hire workers and it all gets very addictive despite being so simple.
  • In Dig Deep you can unlock and upgrade your carry capacity just by digging down the levels.
  • Amaze! Is a sliding puzzle game where you just move around the maze filling in the squares, simple and addictive with three game modes – tune Rush, classic, and limited moves, it also offers unlocks like new balls.

QubicGames 20th Anniversary Review Cons:

  • None of the games have any real graphics settings to speak of.
  • Cannot remap controls in the games.
  • Obviously due to their history, they do feel like mobile phone games blown up to a big screen.
  • All the games are seperate downloads and don’t have an overall housing or ui for the games.
  • None of the games come with DLC.
  • A few of the games have performance issues and it’s mostly slowdown when a lot is happening.
  • No game has online multiple interactions.
  • Across the board, the music is not great.
  • When using Steam big picture mode none of the game achievements popped up when earned.
  • Games like Sausage Wars not only don’t offer any tutorials but it also doesn’t let you view the controls.
  • Infantry attack has terrible screen tearing and performance issues.
  • The Nom is a harder title to play as the tentacle alien movement is hard to judge especially when trying to eat humans.
  • Cannot ever rename your characters in game so you are always called a player.
  • Golf Guys controls take a lot of getting used to as it has hooks and serves built into the power meter and doing precise shots is hard.
  • Mob control has a lot of stuttering when playing.
  • Paper io 2 is the worst offender for not having a tutorial so you have no clue what’s going on.

The QubicGames 20th Anniversary collection offers a decent array of games with satisfactory graphics and full controller support. The collection is diverse, featuring a bit of every genre, and provides endless replayability. Each game is a separate download, allowing players to choose which games they want to install.

Standout games include Hole io, which is reminiscent of Katamari, and Johnny Trigger Sniper, a game that tests your sniping skills. Pocket Mini Golf and its sequel offer a fun, stylized crazy golf experience with local multiplayer and secret levels. Aquarium Land stands out as a casual management game where you can create your own Aqua world, offering a deeper, more engaging experience. Astro Miner and DIG Deep are addictive games where you collect materials for upgrades. Amaze! is a simple and addictive sliding puzzle game with three game modes.

Despite the collection’s strengths, it has its drawbacks. The games feel like mobile phone games blown up to a big screen, lacking real graphics settings and the ability to remap controls. Performance issues are present in a few games, most notably slowdown when a lot is happening. The music across the board is not great, and when using Steam big picture mode, none of the game achievements popped up when earned. Some games, like Sausage Wars and Paper io 2, lack tutorials, making it difficult for new players to understand the controls and gameplay.

Overall, the QubicGames 20th Anniversary collection offers a wide variety of games that cater to different tastes. While it has its flaws, such as performance issues and a lack of tutorials in some games, its strengths lie in its diversity and replayability. Whether you’re into casual management games like Aquarium Land or addictive material-collecting games like Astro Miner, there’s something for everyone in this collection. Despite some games feeling like enlarged mobile games, the collection offers a decent gaming experience for its price point. It’s a collection that can scratch a particular itch, offering endless hours of fun and entertainment and cementing Qubic games as the kings of casual gaming.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
