Physics based puzzlers where you're put into test-lab style rooms to navigate and find the way forward naturally draw comparisons to perhaps one of the most memorable puzzle games of the past twenty-years - Portal. As a sequel to what began as a student project Q.U.B.E. 2 stakes a claim for itself with impressive puzzle design and great visuals.


From the minimal and evocative visual aesthetic and the science fiction setting one might look at Q.U.B.E. 2 and conjure up the image of a Portal-like experience. Now, in terms of structure and presentation there is a sense that the team looked to Portal 2 for inspiration – but where the comparisons ring truest is in how well puzzle progression, in terms of complexity and difficulty, is handled. Q.U.B.E. 2 never fails to capture that feeling of accomplishment that comes from being completely perplexed one minute to figuring out a complex sequence of triggers and movements to reach a goal the next.

Truly impressive puzzle design is present throughout.
