A 2D Rubik’s Cube – Presenting Cognicube for Android
The Rubik’s cube is one of many people’s favorite pastimes. In fact, there are a few games for mobile devices to play this in case you don’t own one (or in case your pockets are not big enough). Also, if you search around, you will find several variants of the game, but XDA member theillustratedlife took a different approach to make this game more refreshing. As a cube has 6 sides, the dev figured that the cube can be opened up, showing all 6 faces simultaneously in a 2D environment. This is for all these people who believe that a game must be in 3D to be good and playable. There is plenty of fun in the 2D world, we just need to find devs who are willing to do things like this for us.
Be sure to drop by the thread and leave some feedback.
I just shipped my first Android game!
It’s called Cognicube. It’s a sliding cube puzzle, like a Rubik’s Cube, but unwrapped so you can see all six faces at once.
It’s completely free. There’s a donation window that will pop-up when you launch the game, but you can easily close it with the Back key.
Please let me know what you think!
You can find more information in the game thread.

Luckily enough, users can use third party alternatives that bring more features. One such application is Hi Locker, developed by XDA Senior Member thotran7989. Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...
Here on XDA TV we have a series we like to call Must Have Apps. These are apps that we think are so great and useful that you must have them. We’ve given this title to such programs as Pushbullet, Light Flow, Helium, the AROMA File Manager, ROM Toolbox and Pocket Casts. But today we have an app that surpasses them all. Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
