Do you remember playing with Rubik’s Cube when you were a kid? I do. I remember trying for hours and hours to get all those little colored squares to match up. I got pretty close once but I never quite finished the puzzle. Well, like almost everything else Rubik’s Cube has been redesigned for the 21st Century.

Introducing Rubik’s Slide by Techno Source . . .

rubikPRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With over 10,000 brain-busting puzzles, the Rubik’s Slide™ is a brand-new challenge for all ages! The object of each puzzle is to rearrange the pattern of lights by shifting and twisting until they match the solution for that puzzle. With two ways to play and multiple challenging levels that train your brain, it’s the game that’s easy to learn and impossible to put down!

OUR REVIEW

We received a Rubik’s Slide to try out for ourselves and let me tell you, it’s every bit as challenging if not more than the original version. At first, I couldn’t figure out how to use it since my instincts tried to turn the panels around. The I realized that all I needed to do was slide the top panel up, down, or to either side. These movements controlled the lights’ movements.

The object of the game is to get the red and blue lights into the correct patten in either free play or lightning round mode. In the lightning round mode, you have to complete 10 puzzles in 30 seconds with various difficulty levels to choose from. I was only able to complete 4 out of the 10 puzzles even on the easiest setting. Then Kacie tried it and finished 7 puzzles. Of course, I had to give it another try . . . and another . . . and another. And because each round is only 30 seconds long, it wasn’t a major time commitment on my part.

We found Rubik’s Slide to be fun, challenging, and addictive. It’s great for those who have a analytical mind and for those who love solving puzzles. It’s being released some time this Fall by Techno Source. Just in time for the holidays!

    I would like to win the Rubik’s Slide because It would be a fun game to play with the family on family game night. It would be a challenge to see if anyone could figure it out and if so how fast they can do it. I love the original Rubik’s cube even though I have never been one to figure it out!
