The name Rubik is a popular one for sure, thanks to that colorful little puzzle cube. The name is coming back into popularity thanks to apps bearing it like the latest called Rubik’s Race that is a fast paced puzzle sliding game. Price is $1.99, and it’s available right now for you to play!
Puzzle fans can now play the addictive Rubik’s Race game on the move with Rubik’s new app for iPhone & iPad, making the latest Rubik’s craze instantly accessible for gaming fun. Available in the Apple app store, the Rubik’s Race app features fast-paced, sliding puzzle-based game play as users try to match patterns and beat the clock, whilst unlocking perks and dodging the pitfalls.
The popular Rubik’s Race game on which the app is based takes the simple concept of a sliding tile puzzle and turns it into a fast-paced game for one or two players that gets brains and fingers racing.
Explained David Kremer of Rubik’s: “The concept of Rubik’s Race is beautifully simple and the app works on the same principle, but it means that you can sneak in some practice on your own whenever you like, as well as pitting yourself against friends. With the fun and flexibility of three ways to play and your best scores being posted to the game centre as well as to Facebook, it adds a whole new dimension to the game.”
The app’s Arcade mode is a level-based version of the game where you pit your wits against the clock, with perks and pitfalls adding to the excitement. Complete increasingly more complex patterns as the levels progress and when the timer runs out, you’re out!
The Time Attack option uses the basic game where you create a nine-tile pattern of the app’s choice as quickly as possible. To get interactive, you can compete against the times of others as well as your own best scores using Games Centre leader boards.
As with the original Rubik’s Race, Play & Pass mode allows you to compete against friends on the same device to see who really is the best Racer out of your friends.
Rubik’s Race is available via the app store for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch for £1.49/$1.99.
