Around 1982/3 a craze overtook the nation and almost no-one was immune! It was to sweep the oceans and worm its way into the minds of children and adults alike.
The fiendishly mind-boggling Rubik's cube, created by a Hungarian mathematician, is still with us. Now, you can re-live the experience with a game from Riverdene PD called Cubulus. It's a Rubik's cube in two dimensions.
You are presented with a board containing nine sets of 16 blocks in different colours. The object of the game, as with the original cube, is to rearrange the colours and put them back in the correct order. The game is similar in style to Clear and is just as addictive.
The blocks are mixed up by the computer and then it's all up to you. The gameplay method is again similar to Clear - you move the blocks by means of arrows placed around the sides of the board. You can move left or right and up and down. It may take some time to do this but it feels great when it's finished!
It's tremendously entertaining stuff and well worth the dosh. I've seen games being sold over £20 in the shops - why part with so much when you need spend so little?
The PD scene is coming up trumps with good quality entertainment that wouldn't be out of place in an arcade and costs a lot less than some commercial offerings.
