Brubik’s Cube (Virtual Ribik’s Cube)

Why another Virtual Rubik’s Cube program?

After seeing what was out there already, I found nothing that allowed the user to control the cube easily. Also, the ability to solve different sized cubes was limited, so I decided to write my own using OpenGL.

Controls

Mouse:

Simply drag any square on the cube in direction you wish to turn it.

Left mouse   - Rotate that slice only

Middle mouse - Rotate all slices from the selected slice to the closest edge

Right mouse  - Rotate entire cube (to get different view). Does not count as a move.

 

Keyboard:

1-9,a-k : Selects Size of the cube, from 1x1x1 to 20x20x20! And goes to solved state.

p             : pause timer (will restart with any move)

r              : randomize (mix up) cube. Will start timer and move counter.

s              : Speed up animations

S              : Slow down animations

z              : Undo last move (can back up multiple moves)

y              : redo last move (can advance multiple moves)

Installation
