At first play, I thought what a spectacular game! Full of amazing graphics, interactive game play, bright lights and pretty, swirling colours. 10 mins into the game and I'm feeling quite queasy.

Not a game for me.

I really wanted to like this game, but the movement was counter-intuitive and I couldn't get the right groups to show for the 'quant' I had to shoot. As somebody else said, there were no easy levels to get you into the game gradually. I uninstalled after about 15 minutes. I will not be buying this one.

I don't think I understand this game! I thought I did what I was supposed to do...match a ball with 3 other balls...but it says it's unsolved. Hmmm. I tried puzzle mode by the way. It's kind of hard to get that little cube positioned, too. Maybe I'll try again later. I really wanted to like this game.

OK...went back & played Strategy. Now I understand what's going on! I think the directions should be more extensive. Don't know if I want to buy it. Seems like it may get boring after a while.

I've already filled my punch card for this month. Hate to start a new one because I can't afford 5 more games this month even with the Spring Fever Sale. Guess I'll put this game on hold for now.

Wow! Beautiful HD graphics!

But the game is kind of hard. I think I'll try it some more in other modes.

The graphics are stunning. I enjoyed shaking the block so that all the Quantz flew off and then trying to catch matching colors on the same face to make the shooting more effective.

However, the game was very slow-moving, the strategy mode didn't seem to advance to harder levels at all and the repetitive nature of the challenges mean that I uninstalled with 20 minutes left on the demo. Not a buy for me...but a good try at mixing up the Match-3 genre.

I too wanted to like this game as it was really different to anything else that I have played before, plus I have a habit of liking weird sounding puzzle games, but it just boggled my head.

Like some of the other fish in the pond said it throws you straight into the game and you are left baffled from the very beginning.

I think that with a little tweaking this game could be great, especially as weird always sells.

Maybe a few practice levels or something would help.

Real shame this one did not work out, but I could not even stay for seven minutes, and I hardly ever stop playing a game this early.

I disliked this game at first. I am rather klutzy with my hands and stiff due to arthritis, and at first I just couldn't get the hang of how to turn the cube. But once I settled down, read a couple of useful hints here, and figured out my mouse motions, I realized that with no serious time limits, I could just think about what to do and play smart, which turned out to be a lot of fun. It's a lot like a marble popper in slo-mo. For those with patience and good plotting ability, this can be a great game. I've not touched the action game (I bet that means time limits!), and barely got into the puzzle game, but I'm ready to call myself addicted, at least for a while. The graphics and music are very nice, too, which is a real plus for me. For the right person (which is not all of you out there) this could be a game.

Wow. Deliriously beautiful graphics with superb music and accompaniments. I cannot fault the presentation but the vertigo the game generates in my head makes it unplayable for me. I cannot get my head into the constant 3D motion. I'll leave it on my computer for now but I've only used 5 mins of the 60 min trial before I had to switch off.

Deviously clever and well conceived, gorgeous execution!
Wish there were more of this quality.

Don't know if it's because I started as strategy, but I didn't find it difficult to figure how to play. A cool strat game with gorgeous graphics. Love how you can completely mix things up by moving the cube quickly enough. Not sure yet if I'll buy, but definitely under consideration.
