The One for ST Games (Dec, 1991)
Each level has a distinctive background and soundtrack appropriate to the part of the world the cubed object comes from, and the objects themselves, once completed, are superbly drawn. The variety of levels and the relief provided by the shoot 'em up sections makes Devious Designs worthy of a place in the collection of anyone who enjoys brain games.
Atari ST User (Feb, 1992)
Enjoyable, more challenge than Anneka Rice, and excellent graphics – a worthy reward for struggling through the levels. Yes, it is eccentric, esoteric and some other words beginning with "e" and ending in "ric". But the 50 levels there are take so much playing, the hair-pulling factor is never less than enormous and you so won't stop playing it for hours – if the joystick doesn't go through the monitor first. The best puzzle game to appear on the ST for ages.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Feb, 1992)
Grafisch präsentiert sich Devious Designs in ungewöhnlichen, wunderschönen Bildern. Ein wahrer Genuß sind die Anlehnungen an große Meisterwerke der Klassik oder die farbenprächtigen Umsetzungen der jüngeren Geschichte. Devious Designs wird seinem Namen gerecht. Das simple Konzept wird in einem tollen Outfit dargeboten und bietet Spielspaß für viele Stunden.
ST Format (Mar, 1992)
Devious Designs has a simple plot, a simple aim and, what with the clues to the different strategies you need to employ, you don't have to use too much brain power - ruthlessness with your joystick is far more effective. So, unless you have real concerns about the future of the spherical earth, Devious Designs isn't likely to keep you interested beyond a couple of hours on a rainy Sunday afternoon. In a nutshell, in fact, you'd have to be a real square to want to play this.
