Holiday Gift Guide: Rubik’s Slide

The Game Everyone Can Play, No One Can Put Down

~Electronic Version of Rubik’s Cube – World’s Best Selling Puzzle of All Time~

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the launch of Rubik’s Cube, the best-selling puzzle of all time (with more than 350 million sold), and to celebrate, the third generation of an electronic version of this puzzle – Rubik’s Slide is available and coming to Canada!

Like the Rubik’s Cube, Rubik’s Slide features over 10,000 puzzles that  require a combination of speed and strategy that can pose a challenge to even the most avid casual gamers. Rubik’s Slide is also just as addictive as the Rubik’s Cube with can’t-put-it-down fun!

Though similar, Rubik’s Slide is also fundamentally different with its multiple levels of playmaking it accessible for gamers of all ages… puzzles that can be solved in Free Play mode or by choosing the Lightning Round – a race against the clock that challenges players to complete a series of 10 puzzles before time runs out.

Players begin each puzzle with a starting pattern… displayed on a nine-square (3×3) grid and then after checking the ‘goal pattern’ by pressing a separate toggle, must manipulate the pattern by twisting and shifting the top panel. Once the puzzle is solved, the game advances to the next puzzle. In keeping with the ‘electronic’ approach to such a classic game, Rubik’s Slide includes audio prompts for when you’ve solved the puzzle, sound control and an audible ‘high score’.

Whether you’ve ever been able to solve the Rubik’s Cube or not… if you love casual gaming and you like the idea of being challenged and advancing through different levels of play, you’re going to love this game,” observes Richard Albert of RP Toys, distributor of Rubik’s Slide in Canada. “The beauty of this game is that you don’t have to be a genius in order to play it and have fun. And if you are a genius – guess what? You’re still going to be challenged.

Boasting tends to be a big thing with some folks at my house. I was told the Rubik’s Cube was easy and therefore the Rubik’s Slide would be as well. It proved to be a brain stump and made for some fun as one by one we challenged the machine! 

Rubik’s Slide is available in both the US and Canada at many retailers nationwide. It has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of just $19.99!

I received the Rubik’s Slide in order to facilitate an honest review. The opinions are my own and were in no way influenced by the sponsor. Others’ experiences may vary.
