Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

King of QUB3D

Beat the High Score in QUB3D.  

QUB3D is a machine that can be found all round the island. There is one in first strip club as you go in the front door on the left. There is also one in the same bar as the first pool hall you enter. (See "Pool Shark") The high score is 10,950, but the achievement will not unlock until after you finish the game. The main point of QUB3D is that blocks will fall from the top to the bottom much like Tetris, and you need to get similar colors to land so that 4 blocks of the same color are connected, and then that color block will disappear. 

**Can be done after completing story mode**

Once you get the hang of the game, it's actually pretty easy. Kind of like a 3D Tetris. :)

I once played this for like 3 hours on a Saturday instead of going out. Still don't have the achievement. Maybe I'll make a play at it again soon.

i can never get more than a 9450 score. im at 96.58% game complete and im realising after several tries, ill never get this or 100% acheivement. at a bout 9450 score, the orange color cubes start dropping. im slightly colorblind so in the heat of the game, the orange loos too similar like the red. only when its too late i can see the difference in shade of color. guess its time to move on.... :(

This is either a very easy acheivement to get or a very difficult to get. Although you need this to attain the 100% completion Acheivement too...

Not that this too hard, once you get the hang of the game... but I'm glad that I finally got this achievement. Tedious as heck this achievement is.

Comment #32 by AtomicThumbs
Wednesday, December 21, 2011 @ 12:59:28 PM

Got it on my fourth try. Took maybe 30 minutes. It's kind of a pain but as the game gets very difficult when your score gets close to 10,000. Once you get the hang of the game mechanics it's not so bad though.

Man I've beaten this arcade game several times but when I get a 360 again this achievement is gonna blow. It is hard one time I was 300 points off the mark then it was game over I was so pissed. :)

Comment #35 by Death4life
Friday, February 10, 2012 @ 05:02:12 AM

I've gotten this trophy twice on PS3 and once on 360. I hate this game now I'm back again for round 4 lol. To the other guy. Yeah I'll never get 100% in IV too cause of the pigion and Stunt Jump achivements. :P

This achievement made me bleed out of my eyes

Comment #49 by Simulacrid
Thursday, October 25, 2012 @ 06:12:05 AM

Okay, I think there's something fairly simple that will make this achievement a lot easier for anyone struggling with it. If anyone is having a hard time getting the colours to line up the way they want to when rotating a vertical block to become horizontal, there's a little trick to it. When a vertical block stacks up three-dimensionally (this happens as vertical blocks move down the screen), pay attention to which half is on top. That half will move to the left if you rotate the block to the left. Conversely, It will move to the right if you rotate the block to the right. This will help you line up your horizontal blocks the way you want to. After I figured this out, I got the achievement on my next try and the mini game was kind of fun.

This game is a lot of fun. Stop going for the achievement, and just play QUB3D because you can. It becomes 2x the highscore in no time.

took me like 3 hours total to get this achievement, and honstly the best way is to get as many power ups as you can

Comment #53 by nselvo

Just keep forming squares of four of the same same color to get your power bar up then using one of your powers (pressing A, X, B, or Y) when the screen starts getting messy.
