DETAILS
Eight cubes are positioned on a 3×3 board.
Click a cube next to the free board position. The cube rolls into this position.
This causes another side of this cube to be visible.
The cross-shaped diagram to the right shows a fold-out of this cube.
You can also click a cube that cannot be rolled; this shows a fold-out diagram of the clicked cube.
Beginner Level
Rearrange the cubes so that all the letters are framed blue.
Then rearrange the cubes so that all the letters are framed orange.
Continue for all the colors.
Expert Level
Rearrange the cubes so that the blue-framed letters spell out "CAPETOWN".
Then rearrange the cubes so that the orange-framed letters spell out "CAPETOWN".
Of course all letters have to be the right way up.
Continue for all the colors.
Controls
"randomize" scrambles the set-up. All scrambled set-ups are solvable!
"reset" takes you back to the scrambled position after you clicked "randomize" the last time.
"back to start" takes you back to the unscrambled starting position.
