  3 Screenshots
GNUbik is an interactive, graphical, single player puzzle. This free program renders an image of a cube, like that invented by Erno Rubik. You have to manipulate the cube using the mouse. When each face shows only one colour, the game is solved.

GNUbik uses GTK+ and/or X11 and Mesa/OpenGL.

Main features:

  • Free Software. GNUbik is licensed under the GNU General Public Licence.
  • Supports cubes of any size. 3x3x3 is the default.
  • Custom colours. Choose any that are available to your system. Just drag and drop them to the cube.
  • Instead of colours, you can also use images.
  • You can watch the cube solve itself. And you can write your own scripts and run them on the cube.
  • You can record and playback sequences of moves.
  • GNUbik has been tested on many GNU/Linux operating systems and is designed to work on any POSIX compliant platform which has the X Window System and Mesa / OpenGL installed.
  • Uses the GTK widget set, and has a Gnome look and feel.
  • Internationalised menu labels. GNUbik has been translated into non English languages.
  • Configurable animation speed.
