GyroCube – Time Attack by Anders Schou FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1

A few weeks ago I wrote about GyroCube and was just plain wrong.  I though that the cube could not be rotated and that in order to solve it, one must memorize the unseen portions.

The reason I thought that was the case was because I held my ipad in a stationary position. In fact, the ipad should be rotated in all dimensions to see everything.

I still haven’t solved it, but marvel at the concept and implementation.

GyroCube – Time Attack comes from Anders Schou. Imagine yourself locked inside a Rubik’s Cube. Can you solve it inside/out?

Your perspective is completely fixed, so there’s an element of blind-solving going on. You cannot rotate yourself within the cube.

I have not solved it. But once again, I am amazed and delighted by the creativity and ingeniousness of cubers who are finding innovate ways to keep the game fresh.

Anders – stunning achievement.

PInochle HD – free for a short time

iPhone Screenshot 1

A story: when we were kids, our father taught us Pinochle. We never knew anybody else who played the game.  We had marathon sessions – always when we were on vacation.  One day, my father saw a classified ad about a Pinochle tournament.  But the phone number was wrong. My father theorized that it could’ve been a case of espionage: when a spy completed his mission, he would place a classified ad that nobody would pay any attention to.

Pinochle HD has a rule that we never used: after the bidding is complete, the partner can pass 4 cards to his partner. The bidder gets to see them before passing over 4 other cards.  Also different: the opening bid starts at 250.

I played Pinochle HD for about 30 minutes. I really like it…..but I’m not sure that the program is people smart. I let the person to my right win the bidding and he picked spades as trump….I had 5 spades including the ace and two tens.

I’ve lost track of how many robots have broken the record for speed cubing. This record is going to stand for a while.
