|In 1983, in order to cash in on the Rubik's Cube craze, Atari released Atari Video Cube for their venerable Atari 2600 system. In it, you control Hubie the Cube Master, a character obsessed with squares and all things square.|
Hubie's mission in life is to teach cubists and future cubists the best ways to play a magical puzzle. The puzzle in question is a six-sided, multi-colored cube. Each side is composed of nine faces, colored red, blue, green, white, purple or orange; your job is to arrange the faces so that each side of the cube is one color.
You play by moving Hubie around the cube and having him pick up and drop various colors. After selecting a color, you will have traded the color you were carrying for the color you picked up. You can then move onto another face of your choice to trade for a different color.
Depending on which game variation you select, your goal is to solve the puzzle in the least amount of time or by using the fewest number of moves.
Atari Video Cube was released only as a special promotion to Atari Club members and was also offered under the title Rubik's Cube.
