Amiga Action (Jun, 1991)
The single player option becomes tedious after a while but when you invite a friend around for a two player bash things become more interesting. A worthy puzzle game which brain boxes should enjoy.
Raze (Jul, 1991)
Perhaps it is over my head but half the time it seems to be more luck than judgement that you succeed - especially on levels that include over a hundred tiny sections to paint. This gives it a "take it or leave it" feel and prevents Quadrel from ever becoming really gripping or addictive, only ever vaguely entertaining.
Die einfache, aber hübsche Titelmelodie sorgt auch während des Malens für die richtige Balance zwischen Humor und Hektik. Die einfache Grafik ist klar und dem Spielprinzip angemessen, auf die Dauer freilich etwas eintönig. Mit der Maussteuerung gibt es keine Probleme, zumal die Anleitung dreisprachig, bzw. Deutsch als Bildschirmsprache wählbar sein wird. Mit knapp 90 Mark für den einfachen Aufbau etwas hoch angesetzt, fördert Quadrel den Ehrgeiz doch enorm. Ein flotter Zeitvertreib, dem nur die letzte Suchtstufe von z.B. Columns fehlt.
Amiga Format (Jun, 1991)
Simplicity is often a boon in puzzle challenges but this one is rather too simple and lacks the solid depth of strategy. An amusing diversion nonetheless, for a while at least.
Play Time (Jul, 1991)
Quadrel ist nicht ganz so schlecht, wie manche anderen Puzzlespiele, spielst Du gegen einen Freund, so ist es sogar recht unterhaltsam. Jedoch ist Quadrel kein Spiel, wegen dem man eine Nacht durchmacht.
Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Dull to look at, dull to play - Quadrel is one of the least appealing puzzle games about. For the same effect get a friend, some graph paper and four coloured pens - then see whether you get £25 worth of fun out of it.
It's an interesting idea, and is moderately entertaining for a while, but has no real depth or staying power.
CU Amiga (Jun, 1991)
Quadrel has a lot of potential as a game idea, but Loriciel's implementation leaves a lot to be desired.
