Atari Video Cube is a game released for the Atari 2600. It is based on the popular Rubik's Cube puzzle toy of the 1980s.

Story[edit | edit source]

Hubie's home is a six-sided, multi-colored cube. Each side has nine smaller faces, colored red, blue, green, white, purple, or orange. When you start a game, the colors are scrambled. Your task is to arrange the colors so that each side becomes one solid color.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Play by moving Hubie around the cube and having him pick up and drop colors. Each time Hubie picks up a color, he trades his color for the one he has picked up. You can then make Hubie run to another face to trade for a different color. Solve the puzzle in the least amount of moves or time. Or, you can watch Hubie race the clock to solve the cube. You might even get some cube-solving tips!

You can only see one side of the cube at a time, except when turning the cube to another side. To turn the cube, move Hubie to the edge of any side. The cube will rotate, and Hubie will enter the next side. The cube can rotate up, down, and sideways.
