QUB3D (pronounced "cubed") is an arcade minigame in Grand Theft Auto IV which also appears in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description Edit

QUB3D-GTA4-menu

The menu of QUB3D.

The primary goal of the game is to match up coloured blocks into groups of four or more before they fill up the box, similar to Puyo Puyo, except the blocks actually "tumble" down when positioned vertically, akin to a Slinky; as the player acquires a specific amount of points, the game moves up a level.

Initially, the game begins with only blue, green and red blocks. As the player progresses up the levels, however, the game slightly increases the falling speed of new blocks, as well as including more block colors:

  • Yellow blocks are introduced from level 5 onwards;
  • Purple blocks are introduced from level 10 onwards; and
  • Orange blocks are introduced from level 15 onwards.

To counter the increasing difficulty of the game, the player is given the option of acquiring special abilities by stacking 4 blocks of the same color to form the shape of a square-shaped grouping (2 blocks by 2 blocks); note such groups will not remove any neighboring blocks of the same color. By stacking four such groups, the "Power" bar will be filled, granting the player the ability to choose one of four "Special" tricks that aid gameplay. Each "Special" is marked by a different color and is triggered by a specific command:

  • The red "Special" removes the lowest four rows of blocks.
  • The green "Special" removes the middle two columns of blocks.
  • The blue "Special" allows the player to remove all blocks of any selected color in the box. The player must press the same button or key that activated this ability again to select a color.
  • The yellow "Special" momentarily stops the any new blocks from falling on its own, allowing the player to control its descent on their own accord.

A minor drawback to this feature is that the player can only hold a maximum of 3 choices of special abilities at a time.

Beating the developer's high score of 10,950 points earns the "King of QUB3D" achievement. The player must complete this for 100% completion.
