    This game may seem very similar to Portal, but has new game-play skills and other cool things that set it apart. Platforming is way too floaty, which makes it much harder in levels that involve platforming, but that does not make it a bad game, for it is still a great game. The ability to change between 4(5 counting your own) dimensions is a genius idea, and is only a bit similar toThis game may seem very similar to Portal, but has new game-play skills and other cool things that set it apart. Platforming is way too floaty, which makes it much harder in levels that involve platforming, but that does not make it a bad game, for it is still a great game. The ability to change between 4(5 counting your own) dimensions is a genius idea, and is only a bit similar to Portal, because it involves physics. It is funny mostly, but at times the humor is off. However, this is an excellent game, and you should buy it if you are a fan of hard puzzles, intriguing characters, and physics. Fans of Portal will be delighted. Expand

    This is a really funny game and a strong bet for any Portal fans. This is first person, physics based puzzle game. You alternate between dimensions to trigger switches and buttons to finish the stage. There are some plataforming elements, such as jumping between points, and in my opnion the game fails on this point - I find the jump button rather unresponsive.

You alternate between dimensions to trigger switches and buttons to finish the stage. There are some plataforming elements, such as jumping between points, and in my opnion the game fails on this point - I find the jump button rather unresponsive. The puzzles are very clever and the difficulty is just fine. Art is beautiful and narrative keeps you motivated to continue, also being funny and getting some laughs out of you. The game somewhat stutter on textures between stages, but fortunately it disappears quickly and doesn't really happen on crucial moments, such as during a puzzle. There is some replay value to get the fastest time and fewest moves, if you are into that kind of thing (I, myselft, dislike it). It deserves a strong 8 for its current price. Collapse

    Too easy for older gamers, and a little over the heads of younger gamers, Quantum Conundrum finds itself in a sort of purgatory between the two, and like a younger brother it can't help but live in the shadow of its older sibling's success.
  2. It easy to compare this first person puzzler to Valve's Portal, especially if you when you find out that Quantum Conundrum was made by the lead designer of the original Portal. Which also explains why , despite the shabby platforming, it's a pretty enjoyable puzzler. [September 2012, p.87]
  3. Once you earn and understand how to flick between the dimensions (on all four shoulder buttons) Conundrum will have you calling people over to the TV to boast how "S-M-R-T" you are. That joy is offset, however, by Airtight Games' insistence on pinpoint first-person platforming, something that's a source of intermittent frustration. [September 2012, p74]
