The Rubik’s Cube was an absolute phenomenon in the 80s and has remained one of the biggest sellers in the decades since. With the release of the latest and most updated version of the Rubik’s mind bending series of games, the Rubik’s Revo, it’s bound to cause more frustration and, what’s more, taking the stickers off and putting them back in order isn’t going to win you the prize this time.
It really is a revolution with digital games. Shaped like the original cube, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s just the same as the original and that the company are simply trying to cash in on the nostalgia vote.
Game modes include Light Speed, Rapid Recharge, Pattern Panic, Cube Catcher, Multiplayer Madness and Code Cracker. The cube lights up, plays sounds, and times you depending on which of the modes you choose to play. As with the original game, it will infuriate you and please you in equal measures.
Play it by yourself or team up to try and beat one another’s score, and at less than £15, the Rubik’s Revo looks like another blinding release that will keep us entertained for twenty years or more (perhaps not in one sitting, although…)
