Everyone has heard of Rubik’s Cube. Most of us have or have had such a cube. Perhaps you’ve even seen Will Smith’s latest movie, “The Pursuit of Happyness”. There’s a great scene where Chris Gardner (Will Smith) solves a Rubik’s Cube and impresses his soon-to-be boss. Back then, in 1981, the Rubik’s Cube was a bright new invention and somehow managed to capture an entire generation’s imagination.
Perhaps 2007 isn’t much different because a supposed “sequel” to Rubik’s Cube is now available and it’s called Rubik’s Revolution. This new cube keeps that 3 x 3 configuration and the colored sides, but adds electronic games like Rapid Recharge, Light Speed, Pattern Panic, Code Cracker, Cube Catcher and Multi-player Madness. Nobody knows for sure yet what these do, but they surely sound as if they’ll add a new technological side to this great hit. The games feature light, sounds and voice effects, with unlock-able levels and even multi-player play.
This remake, at a price of $20, has potential. However, it is up to you to decide if it will reach or even compare its sales to the original’s 300 million sold units.
