You can claim a Transum virtual trophy for solving the puzzle cube (level ) in moves.
A jumbled moving-block puzzle cube is shown as a net. Can you solve it?
If you have ever tried to solve a Rubik's Cube® you will have an advantage doing this puzzle.
Think of the cube opened out into the shape of this net so that you can see all six faces at the same time. Your mission is to move the coloured squares so that each of the nine squares on any face have the same colour.
You can slide a row of squares to the left or upwards using the buttons provided. Good Luck.
