Play OverviewPlay Overview

Qubo's Quest: Into the Wild (2021) is a running and jumping game with some combat. You play as a tiny robot in an environment where pencils are weapons and pin tacks are deadly. There are two worlds to explore, an office and a garden. You must avoid the deadly staplers, the office cat and the missile launching toy submarines. It's a quirky game full of colourful characters and fun end-of-level boss encounters.

Gameplay involves moving through an obstacle course which has enemies and hazards. You can attack by hitting enemies with a pencil which removes them from the game and drops coins. There are four achievements to obtain on each level; clear, find all secrets, collect everything, and clear without dying.

There are 8 levels to complete. The majority of the action involves jumping at the correct moment, and removing enemies in your way. The end of level bosses have different gameplay, some involve combat, some involve avoiding danger for a set amount of time.

It's a fun, vibrant game that starts simple but gets harder as you progress. The use of office gadgets as enemies is amusing, and the end of level bosses are innovative, and offer some variety from the jump-heavy gameplay of the rest of the level.
