ATARI VIDEO CUBE / Atari / 2600

Hmm ... it may have been cashing in on a trendy toy of the time, but points for creativity I suppose. Video Cube is Atari's virtual interpretation of the Rubix Cube. A little dood runs around and swaps colors by absorbing them into himself, so it's kinda like cheating by peeling the stickers off the cube then replacing them ... the twist that gives it a challenge is that he can't cross over a color that he's currently carrying, but he can "rotate" the cube in any direction by running to the edge of it. Does get a tad confusing, but still pretty neat, probably worth picking up just as a showpeice for the system, and it is unlike any other puzzle game I've ever seen.
