Rubik's World

Formatted for Nintendo DS ($29.99) and Wii ($39.99) comes the innovative and challenging Rubik's World game. Two separate puzzle games that are fun for the whole family. Geared for ages six and up this game consists of eight puzzle games that are all very different from the DS version.

Similar to the classic Rubik's cube this game combines the abstract world with the fun and unique puzzles. It allows multiple players to make their own background music (five sounds from piano to bass) which can be saved and sent to other worldwide Rubik's players.

Key features include:

Play 8 unique games which mix puzzles, quizzes, music and sound activities – as well as the classic cube solving game!

Multiplayer games allowing you to share the fun with family and friends. Compare your stats and progress, share environments, music compositions and more!

Each game requires forward thinking and involves complex mechanics but a simple interface – all based on the idea that every reaction can have multiple reactions
Expand your Rubik’s universe. The better you play, the more cubies come to life, unlocking new challenges and activities.

Since I have a Wii I found it fun to post my creations and share with others online. It is pretty amazing what you can do with this game. It gets more and more difficult (read: challenging) to play as you enter the different levels. I liked how you can engage and interact with other "cubies" (cubes in the game) as you advance in the game. It adds up to one game that is always changing and never boring.

Rubik's World can be purchased online at Amazon or at stores like Target and Walmart.
