Summary: This game does not appeal to me. Sure it does have a lot of good stuff at first but it does not stay for long. After 30 minutes the game will reach the level of boredom and you will want more. Most things you can finish in a snap and easyness is reached. If I were you I would just try to avoid.
Summary: Note: This is my review for the DS version. The Wii version has related but different content. Areas: Rubik - It will teach you an algorithm to solve the 3x3x3 cube. It also lets you play a 2x2x2 and a 4x4x4 cube, however it doesn't teach you the algorithm for them. The rotatable view of the cube and its control mechanism work well. In this section, you can also play a mini-game where you start with a solved cube and then match it to a pattern they give you.
Rubiks interest: Must! Just a puzzle lover: Maybe.

Summary: I've always had an interest in learning how it is that peope solve a rubik's cube. Thanks this game and YouTube, I can at least solve a 2x2 and 3x3 cube.. well.. as long as I have my algorithm sheet. This N.DS title provides a little more than just a rubik's cube to play with; it also has a few other toys and puzzles to work out for the Cubies' contentment. By the way, a single Cubie is 1 of 26 on a 3x3 cube.. or 1 of 8 on a 2x2 cube.
Summary: What was I thinking when I purchased this? This game was a TOTAL disappointment. I purchased one for my NDS and one for the Wii. And let me tell you, I could not sale either of them fast enough. Rubik's World is a great concept as a video game. I don't think that it can be simulated effectively in order to achieve the game objectives. Not very well thought out.
Summary: This is much more of a dip in, dip out game than most puzzlers, if you have 5 mins or half an hour its just perfect, keeps your hands and eyes busy and as you get further in your brain too, great for filling in but not keen on all the puzzles and the virtual cube will never be solved by me, but still something for everyone, if everyone likes puzzles
Summary: After initial consternation about the difficulty of this game I have cracked the problem and enjoy it immensly. Even going through each group of games for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th time is just as much fun. It may help that I cannot remember which way I did it last time!
Summary: I bought this thinking it would be a clever modern take on the age old Rubik's cube. How wrong I was. This game, if indeed it can be called a game, is so awkward to control that it almost renders it un-playbable. Secondly, there is nothing original here at all. It is simply an on-screen rubik's cube which you rotate/control via the stylus. You can save your progress, read hints, and toggle some extras such as different colours and sound effects.
Excerpt: "The game includes varied games loosely based on the original rubiks cubes. The cubies as they are called are each individual piece of a rubiks cube. One game is matching the cubies so that at least 5 connecting ones are of the same colour. This is done by swapping a cube with another one. You have until the time the screen fills up with cubes to play. Its very similiar to columns. Also included is a maths one, which is more like graph references, ...
Pros: More than just the cube itself
Cons: can be hard to move the cube with the stylus
