    The Entropy Centre is far and away one of the best first-person puzzlers you can play. If the genre does anything for you, you should come away satisfied with what the game has in store.

    The worlds of Portal and Tenet combine to bring a puzzling game about turning back time.

    The Entropy Centre is a fun, clever, and taxing puzzler that rewards your effort, persistence and, frankly, backwards thinking.

    The Entropy Centre is a satisfying puzzle game with a unique idea at its center. Rewinding time to solve problems and move through spaces is a good concept and the execution is mostly solid. I appreciate how the game forces players to engage with the puzzles from ever-changing perspectives as they search for a solution. The title’s presentation is good, even if the rooms are largely interchangeable. Aria and ASTRA work as protagonists, even if their banter is not stellar. The Entropy Centre is the kind of puzzle experience that will attract both long-term fans of the genre and newcomers with its unique time-rewinding idea. But it stays a little too close to its inspirations, underlining how hard it is to improve on the classics.

    If you like games in Portal puzzle style, definitely do not miss The Entropy Centre. You get a time weapon and start solving rooms in the research center. The plot could have been more fleshed out, but otherwise it's a very pleasant experience.

    This is a worthy successor to Valve’s Portal games. It doesn’t have the polish and production values of those games but makes up for those shortcomings with it’s gameplay. If you love Portal, you, at the very least, really like The Entropy Centre. The Entropy Centre aims to bring a new meaning to the slogan: Build a Better Tomorrow. The release date is November 3, 2022 and the game will be available on most gaming platforms: Steam, Playstation, and XBox.

    Is The Entropy Centre the Portal 3 you've been waiting for? It wants to be, and it certainly is a well thought out, well paced, and satisfying puzzle game to play. It also has a storyline that, while predictable, is interesting and exciting in the final stages.

    It's portal but now you can rewind some boxes to solve creative and funny puzzles. The Entropy Centre evolves constantly to surprise you on each level until his last minutes.

    While there may be a few stumbles along the way, The Entropy Centre has a unique twist on a familiar premise in this particular genre. It may not redefine it in any new ways, but it's something that will help scratch an itch in a brand-new way.

    With The Entropy Centre behind me, I’m fascinated by what Stubby Games accomplished with its debut. It’s full of excellent puzzles, but the stuff around them, like bugs and narrative pacing, stop the entire package from coming together in an equally impressive way. Despite the exhaustion I felt as the credits rolled, I’m stoked The Entropy Centre exists. It brings something unique and new to the genre, and I hope Stubby Games continues to iterate on that in a sequel, spin-off, or spiritual successor. It’s not every day a game shows me something I’ve never seen before that it also happens to nail, and what The Entropy Centre does well is worth pushing through its long narrative to ensure you see every trick up its sleeve.

    Inspired by Portal, The Entropy Centre will make you think backwards as you complete good puzzle chambers with the help of an energetic AI companion and refreshing detours.

    The Entropy Centre demands a unique way of solving puzzles with the need to use a variety of tools to achieve your goal. The difficulty stops rising prematurely, but the overall experience is enjoyable, with silly interactions between the characters.

    Even if it's far from perfect, The Entropy Centre is an interesting experience and its puzzles are satisfying.

    The Entropy Centre is a more than competent Portal tribute with clever time-manipulation puzzles and an endearing cast, but it doesn't take its clever concept as far as it seems like it should.

    The Entropy Centre is a brutally brain-bending Portal-like, using time as its main mechanic. Casual puzzle-enjoyers might find its trial-and-error game loop more frustrating than fun, but the meticulous-minded will probably enjoy its challenges. [Quick Look]

    Like the Jews built blocks to the Egyptians, you have to do the same...Every morning you come to work...That is your job...To solve cubeLike the Jews built blocks to the Egyptians, you have to do the same...Every morning you come to work...That is your job...To solve cube puzzles...It's a repetitive job like any job...Instead of a boss you have a friendlier female voice who keeps track of any sign of you trying to find anything that would make you happier...You are alone out in space in a facility which produce energy , in case something bad would happen to Earth they could roll back in time before the catastrophe hit earth like never ever happened...

    So while whole Earth celebrating life ,sex and what not, you come to work to arrange cubes in such a way that it would open the door for the next level...Day after day during all your life...

    Now let me tell you, I have never worked a single second in my life...Who ever invented money as a reward for working cannot make be budge...Life is meant to celebrated and I intend to keep it that way...The people who made this game obviously are used to work & for them such a game could be seen as fun...

    Well , they could work all day & all night...I kept it on a minimum dose of one single puzzle for a day...Once I have opened the next door the game saved your position and I could breath & move to a better life...

    One day I woke up sweating and stressed...The work has finally took a toll on my free soul & I felt a slave exactly like the the Jews in Egypt but instead of waiting to Moses to save me I got out of my house to break free and never looked back...I was a free man once more...
