This is NOT another Rubic's cube. It's a whole new kind of puzzle: a slider, not a twister. A 3x3x3 arrangement of cubelets that looks like a rubic's cube but works differently. The center cube is missing which allows sliding permutations. The goal, after a randomization, is to restore the original ordering of the cubelets using color or alphabetic cues. Written in Ada, this code compiles and runs on either OS-X or GNU/Linux. Five alternate "skins" are available as shown in the screenshots, three of which represents the "iQube" whose goal is to invert the color from green to red. Nicely functions on laptops; runs on OS-X Retina displays too. Now with mousewheel zoom.
Easy build system allows anyone with OS-X or Linux and GNAT to recompile; but first try the delivered exes. Note for Mac users: first open a terminal; then initiate game by typing "rufascube_osx".
