Rubiks Revolution - 6 new games in an old box

I blog this here quickly in anticipation and frustration. Anticipation of a fun game that this second take on the cube is going to be. It is also a clever marketing assault.

rubics revolution is the first qualified stab at an electronic take on the vastly popular cubeThe frustration? It is because the original cube was dear to me, I loved it. It was a modular revolution. This version is not quite the modular revolution I expect from the pioneers of LED games I have been predicting in my fun-led-light/games reports.

There is a clear intention though, and it is the only game so far that is officially treading a new and unbeaten path. However, practical problems are already showing. There is no obvious and clear navigation from the splash page, but the site actually offers you free stickers if you wore off yours in the heat of the game. It leads to TechnoSource, a US distributor for the game. Not a good sign ... ?
