Summary

Upon entering the Professor's vast manor home retrofitted with crazy technology to test his latest hypotheses, players quickly realize their uncle has gone missing. Fortunately, players soon gain access to Professor Quadwrangle's latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device, which, at the press of a button, will shift the world around them to an entirely new dimension. In order to find him, players must use the newly found IDS Device to dynamically change the world to and from a variety of different dimensions to progress through the complicated Quadwrangle Manor. While on the journey, becoming adept at utilizing the various dimensions will help them trek from one bizarre and challenging room to the next. It might sound easy enough, but it is a tall order for a kid in a giant puzzle of a manor!

Quantum Conundrum is a solid puzzle game, which shouldn’t come as a shock considering the talent behind it. The dimensional shifts provide a unique game mechanic and switching between each is a breeze. Unfortunately, the level complexity within the puzzles themselves don’t quite match up to the likes of Portal, leaving me with fewer “aha!” moments than I had hoped. Additionally, I often times found myself frustrated with the controls, especially when the game required precise platforming to progress onward.

Quantum Conundrum takes alot of the core features of Portal and builds off of them in thoughtful ways, it just doesn't quite hit the same marks in the story telling department however. There are plenty of puzzles to engage your gamer brain throughout the 6-7 hour campaign, and there's a bit of replay value thrown in with the ability to go back and collect hidden items.

The peaks certainly overshadow the few valleys in Quantum Conundrum. Puzzles are easily some of the best in the business, and even though Quadwrangle doesn’t play a huge part in the game, his time travel exploits play for some fantastic cool down moments in the mansion. With the lack of characters though, the mansion, in which you’re imprisoned, takes on a character of its own, and I’d have it no other way.
