In a universe, dimensions are connected to each other. In the center of the passages lies Dimensional Core, keeping the balance between dimensions. This balance began to collapse when the Core stopped working. Unless someone gives a helping hand, soon the universe will follow. The Gate doesn't let anyone into the Dimensional Core. But Quby, as the last descendant of Chosen Ones, can access the Gate. To restore the balance between dimensions, Quby opens a portal to the Gate. With Varon, the talking penguin, she must explore the long-forgotten ruins of her ancestors and find a way to reactivate the Core. Let the journey begin!

QV is an enjoyable puzzler packed full of content. If you can cope with the slow paced movement, it throws enough new obstacles at you to keep things fresh from start to finish.

QV is another puzzle-shaped feather in the eShop’s cap. Its brainteasers successfully balance accessibility with sophistication. Its vibrant art style and subdued soundtrack evoke pensiveness. However, it’s the small cast of characters and playful comedy that truly solidify it as exceptional. I wish the developers doubled down on these low-key moments since they breathe new life and context into the underlying puzzle game. Even so, QV is an adventure I won’t soon forget.

8 / 10

Filled with humour and mystery QV is a fine puzzle addition to Nintendo Switch. Quby's inquisitive nature coupled with her determination to make friends no matter how spikey the personality is makes playing as her a joy. This is accessible for all players no matter their puzzle ability, and there are hours to be spent figuring out how to get Quby to each gate, avoiding environmental traps, as well as enemies who will chase her. This isn't over once the story is completed. There are seventy nine achievements to unlock for completionists, an extra difficult level, and it is easy to want to re-experience levels simply for the fun of being with the charming Quby again. Apart from occasional levels that seemed set at the wrong difficulty for both the difficulty setting and the point in the game, QV is a must-play for all puzzle enthusiasts.
