How to play

The commands to operate the game are relatively simple, since it counts on two different input abstractions: mouse and keyboard.

Keyboard

  • Space: Shuffles the cube and starts the chronometer (it won't work if the game is already running).
  • Up arrow: Rotates the cube view upward.
  • Down arrow: Rotates the cube view downward.
  • Left arrow: Rotates the cube view leftward.
  • Right arrow: Rotates the cube view rightward.
  • W Key: Rotates the top face.
  • S Key: Rotates the bottom face.
  • A Key: Rotates the left face.
  • D Key: Rotates the right face.
  • Q Key: Rotates the back face.
  • F Key: Rotates the front face.
  • Shift: When combined with movement buttons, it performs the countermove instead.

Mouse

In order to execute the mouse commands, the player must click, drag and drop the cube.

  • To top: Rotates the cube view upward.
  • To bottom: Rotates the cube view downward.
  • To left: Rotates the cube view leftward.
  • To right: Rotates the cube view rightward.
