You're getting a Rubik's Revolution for Christmas
Whether you like it or not. Grandma won’t be able to resist the pull of the Rubik name.
The Revolution is more of a gimmicky remix of the old Cube than a new lifelong challenge, with loads of flashing lights and pre-programmed sounds giving the goldfish-brained youths of today something to stare gormlessly at while waiting for tonight’s dinner to finish microwaving.
Revolution features six games, all based around pressing the buttons in the middle of each side in the right order. This almost certainly won’t still be charming kids in 30 years time like the original Cube, in fact, it’ll be lucky to make it past Boxing Day before hitting eBay should one appear beneath our USB Christmas tree.
