It was originally released in 2011, but has been updated several times and has now become free.
Puzzles that use a rolling solid for their mechanics often tend to have large levels which take too long to solve, simply because they are large, not because they are difficult.
Qvoid doesn't make that mistake: the puzzles are small, but this doesn't make them trivial; on the contrary, the small space and the limiting game mechanics mean that you always have to use your head, especially if you try to solve them in the optimal number of moves.
As the puzzles progress, the game adds many additional elements to the base mechanics.
In some levels, you have to mix colors. For example, pick up yellow and blue on the same face to make it green.
Two of the groups are called Intro I and Intro II, because they were originally included in Qvoid Intro, which is no longer available on the App Store.
Inside a group, you are encouraged to play puzzles in sequence, but if you get stuck on a puzzle there's the option to skip it and unlock the next one (for free). Or, you can use a single in-app purchase and just unlock everything.
What more can I say? This is one of the best thought out puzzle games I've ever seen. It is thoroughly enjoyable, fun both for casual playing and for deep thinking, and has a marvellous presentation. Last but not least, it has unbeatable value for money, since it's currently free. There are no excuses to not download it immediately.
