Qubrix Brain Twister - 3D combinatorics
VRML/X3D - Unity 3D
Qubrix presents problem similar to the one found in Rubik's Cube (Hungarian Cube). The best description would be to say, it is a mix between Rubik's Cube and Jigsaw puzzle. The goal of the game is to put together the image which is randomly scrambled in the beginning sequence, trying to keep number of moves smallest possible. Current version has ten levels, in each level adjacent cubes are geared to each other using different patterns. Depending on the level, problem can be quite easy or extremely difficult. Full featured version of the game, see bellow, offers level editor utility that enables user to create new or change existing levels, or just so see current pattern, it is possible to make an enormous number of levels. Full version also has possibility to change images, you can use your own, and there is a Save record of course. Great to test and train memory and combinatorial skills, easy to play but not always easy to solve. Few Qubrix consoles are available in every 3D chat world, too. For any bug report, any comment or just to say hi, please use contact form, thanks.
