London, Feb 1 (ANI): The latest offering from the hands of Professor Erno Rubik, inventor of the iconic Cube, is the Rubiks 360.

The new game is tipped to become a bestseller when it goes on sale later this year, reports the Telegraph.

The Rubiks 360 is set to repeat the historical success of the maddening Cube, which became a sensation almost thirty years ago and remains the worlds fastest-selling toy.

Now, the Hungarian inventor is hoping to recreate the buzz of Rubiks Cube with his new game, which features six balls trapped within three transparent plastic spheres.

The puzzle confronts users with the same frustrating challenge a task that is simple to understand, with only one possible solution, yet extremely difficult to execute.

Players must get the coloured balls from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.

The 64-year-old sculptor, engineer and architect released a statement which said: I feel that the 360 is one of the most innovative and exciting puzzles weve developed since the Cube adopting elements of my original design, challenging the solver to use skill, dexterity and logic.

The Rubiks 360 will go on sale in August and will be distributed in Britain by Drumond Park Games. (ANI)
