The story

This is a simple puzzle that I made up a long time ago. This puzzle is inspired by the famous game called Rubik’s Cube. After I invented the mechanism of this game, a friend told me that he had found a game with the same mechanism, this game is called “Rubix”. For this reason I changed the original name that was “Rubik 2D” to “Miro Rubix”. I wrote this game in C for PSP® and in Java for PC platforms.
