Qvoid is a cute tumbling puzzle game that sees you rolling an adorable cube – Qvoid – around a 3D grid. Get Qvoid to collect and match colours to complete the level. It’s one of those games where your spatial awareness is challenged and so the kind of game that will be popular with gamers who enjoy visual, mathematical puzzles.
Price: Free plus IAPs

Pros & Cons:
Unoriginal, little gameplay diversity
Qvoid is a tidy little puzzle game. You flip Qvoid around levels of grids, collecting colours and matching them elsewhere. Initially, this is simply a matter of moving Qvoid from one side of the grid to the other, however, these then become more complicated, involve more colours and eventually move limits are imposed. Like all good puzzle games then, it starts easy and gets trickier and trickier. The learning curve is relatively steep, but it works well and if you enjoy the game, you’ll really like the progression.

The game includes 20 ‘Basic I’ levels in addition to 20 ‘Mix I’ levels where you can mix colours up. Further to this, there is the option to buy additional levels; Basic II, Mix II, Black II and Travel II via in app purchases. There is the option to unlock extra levels too- all with IAPs. These aren’t expensive either so if you enjoy the gameplay, it might be something you consider. The game comes without banner ads, although you do have the occasional full-page Play Store link ads for selected free games.
The graphics are pretty cool; neatly animated and smooth. There’s a great rewind effect when you undo your moves and everything is designed well and pretty slick. The graphics are matched with some nice music and sound effects, While these are nothing to really write home about, they work well with the gameplay and compliment it overall.
If you really like this kind of game which requires some maths and elements of spacial awareness, I’m sure you’ll really find the game lots of fun
I found the gameplay nicely challenging and while I didn’t find it massively addictive, I did think it was a great game to unwind to. You do have to like this particular flavour of puzzle game- it’s perhaps not to everyone’s tastes – but it’s easy to understand and you can pick it up and play it in no time. Although there are different types of level, I didn’t think the game offered much diversity. If you really like this kind of game which requires some maths and elements of spacial awareness, I’m sure you’ll really find the game lots of fun. However, I don’t think there is anything here to draw in other gamers.
