A gift for the casual gamer!

I had meant to feature this yesterday but I'm still sleeping more than normal after being sick and I had to prepare for my last final of the semester, which I'm overjoyed to tell you that I am officially done with the semester as of today. Needless to say I ended up passing out before I could finish the review. Not that I'm saying that my next game is at all boring as its not!

My favorite game of all time for the gameboy has always been Tetris as well its just one of those games that never gets old, and can be played for a few minutes to pass time or hours at a time and its still just as fun. Rubiks World may have just beat out my all time classic favorite as unlike Tetris you can choose between several games and by what game you play you can also choose if you want a short time killer or want to play all afternoon!

Without picking up the box I first thought to myself "Rubiks? Hmm though I have completed a Rubiks World before in real life it took me months and months." I'm not sure that just playing with a Rubiks Cube as a video game was going to be much fun especially if it takes me three months again to finish the cube. I was not so sure that would translate into a fun video game but boy was I wrong. First of all yes Rubiks World includes the option to play with your own Rubiks cube but unlike the plastic version you can set the difficulty level from a 2x2 cube to a large 4x4 cube so hopefully it wont take you nearly as long on the easier level. However, Rubiks World is so much more than just the standard cube you might have gotten as a kid.

Rubiks World has tons of fun mini games from the classic cube game to sort of a version of Tetris that will keep Tetris addicts like me entertained for hours. The game that really had me playing over and over though was a game called Switch. In Switch you move the little cubes around and when you put them in the right place it causes the other cubes to vibrate and thus eliminating the cubes and winning the level. It's incredibly addicting you will have a really hard time putting it down. The best part is the whole family will find a game on Rubiks World that they can play including a music program where you can make music with colored cubes that even the youngest gamers in the household will not want to put down!

Rubiks World is available right now and you can pick up your copy on Amazon!

I have a copy of Rubiks World for the Nintendo DS to give away to one lucky reader!

Tetris was the very first game I got for myself when I bought my DS. It's my destressor.
As for Rubik's World, I've been interested in this release for awhile now and this review has confirmed all my hopes. I'd love to give it a go!

I don't actually KNOW if I want to win this, since I became addicted to the Brain Age game that came with my children's DS's that their older sister bought for them! The fact that the puzzles progress with your skill level is really cool :)

Dave said...

I do enjoy puzzle games, and I like that Rubik's World offers a variety of games with different skill levels. I never did figure out how to solve my darn Rubik's Cube. It sits on my shelf and taunts me with only two sides completed. Thanks for the great give-away.
