GamersInfo Review: Rubik's World "Rubik's World DS is a series of minigames using the blocks that make up the cube. I'm going to make the assumption that you know what a Rubik's Cube is; if you don't, please go look it up before going any further. Eight games are available with the standard Rubik's Cube to solve in multiple sizes. I still can't solve the darn thing; I don't care if it does teach me how.

The remaining seven games use a single block as a cube. In some cases, you may only see the top side of the block and its single color. Other games may require you to color each of the six sides a different color in order to solve the puzzle. There's a bit of math, art and music thrown in as well. My normal method for this type of title is to describe each minigame in detail, but I'm going to try something a little different with this title because, well ... the difficulties for the games are simply so uneven. Just when I was zipping along having a good time, I'd start a new game and WHAM, brick wall. So ...

Rubik's Cube is only hard if you don't want to devote time to learning how to solve the cubes (I didn't). Compose uses the colored blocks, stanzas, sharps and flats and a lot of knowledge of music in order to create compositions. Unless you have this knowledge, it's a pretty rough learning curve and not exactly a game but a simulation. Create is where you "tell" the cubies (as they're affectionately called) what something looks like - a tree, a cloud, whatever makes you happy. These items show up later in other games."
