Q.U.B.E Director's Cut (4)

Q.U.B.E is a fun challenging experience. Director cut brings more content and polish to an already solid little game. Looking at it from screenshots and you cannot help but assume its a Portal clone, It is not n any way. This game is all about the puzzles, No massive story just mind melting puzzles, Oh did I mention it has puzzles? I really enjoyed the game attacking it as a do a puzzle room every now and then, The puzzles were so clever and that is before I even knew about secret rooms containing more puzzles. In short if you enjoy puzzles then this is the game for you, Yes its short but the time trial stuff will keep you coming back.

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!
