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: 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
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
