IQubiQXL How To?

 

DESCRIPTION

iQubiqXL  is a Universal iPad, iPhone and iPod application that is a new approach to the popular 80s cube game you know. In this new representation, imagine the center 3x3-tile face as being in the back as is the case in a normal 2D perspective view. The front 3x3 face is formed by the outermost edges.


As in the original cube, there are 3 times 3 discs which you can turn.


The first three are Front, Front-Mid and Back discs:















The second three are: Top, Top-Mid and Down discs:














The third three are: Left, Right-Mid and Right discs:

















Each of these 9 discs can be tuned in two directions: CLoCKWISE and aNTI-CLOCKWISE. These directions of turning are defined when looking from the outside of the cube towards the cube-face under consideration.


The combination of the 9 discs with these two turn directions, leads to the iQubiqXL vocabulary of 18 words:

Fo, Fa, FoM, FaM, Bo, Ba

To, Ta, ToM, TaM, Do, Da

Lo, La, RoM, RaM, Ro, Ra


As a form of feedback, these words can be pronounced by the iQubiq-male or even sung by the iQubiq-female: opera singer Liesbet Schepkens. Enable this feature via the iQubiq ‘settings’ button, then choose the move sound mode and press ‘apply’.


















Now, how to make these 18 different moves? Simply slide your fingers over 3 or 4 subsequent tiles as indicated in the figures below.
