You need to stretch the rope the sumo is hanging on. Easy? No.

You solve the puzzles drawing things. If you’re in handheld, you simply draw on the screen. If you’re in tabletop or docked, you either use the face buttons or gyro controls. Frankly, Q Remastered is best played in handheld mode where drawing is the easiest way to play. So how does the game play actually work. Take a look at this short video to see:

The soundtrack here is really notable and catchy!

I won’t mince words here, this game is tough and gets tougher. Simple tasks can actually be Herculean in practice. The trick with these puzzle is, is you kinda know what to do, just doing it is hard. But if you are stumped, you can just reset and keep going. The best part is, you can skip around to any of the unlocked puzzles in any order. So if you’re stumped, just move on, only to be stumped on the next one.

The simplest way to solve this would be shoot the ball through the hole using leverage.

There are over 1200 puzzles for you to solve in Q Remastered, and the remastered version comes with 20 “hell” puzzles, that even the game’s creator hasn’t solved. So for puzzle fanatics, you really can’t go wrong here. Recommended!

Overall: Q Remastered is a tough but fair puzzle game where the solution is opened ended, but hard to come by.

Verdict: Recommended
