SCANS ARE OF ACTUAL ITEM FOR SALE:

FROM A SMOKE FREE HOME!

TESTED AND GUARANTEED TO WORK.

This prototype was found at a yard sale near Sunnyvale California (where Atari's headquarters were) a few years ago. Some of the items in the yard sale belonged to an ex-employee of Atari. There was a box full of Atari items and this was one of the items in that box.

According to Atariprotos.com, the first and only (or so we thought until now!) prototype of 3D Rubiks Cube surfaced in 2002 and it came as a surprise as its existence was not previously known. So this right here may be one of only two in existence!

Rubik's Cube 3D is a completely different version of the Rubik's Cube game that Atari released to the general public. This prototype is a remarkable 3D version of the game.

Unlike Atari Video Cube, 3-D Rubik's Cube is displayed in three dimensions so the player can see three of the cube's faces at once rather than one. This makes solving the cube much easier as the player doesn't have to remember the other five sides. Since 3-D Rubik's Cube is shown in actual 3-D perspective, players can manipulate the cube just like they would in the real world. This is a far cry from Atari Video Cube which involved an elf running over squares, picking up and dropping off colors

This prototype has two different play modes: Normal and Cheat (toggled by the left difficulty switch). In normal mode the cube can be rotated in any one of four directions until the desired side appears. Once a side has been selected, the player can then rotate the individual slices. The player repeats this process until the cube is solved (or they give up). In cheat mode, the player can actually set the colors on the cube to what ever they desire (how lame is that?!?!?). Players can even create impossible to solve cubes by placing too many squares of one color or not enough of another. Due to the strangeness of this "cheat mode", people have speculatied it may have been put in for debugging purposes only and would not have been included in the final release.

This prototype even includes a solve mode. If you get too frustrated you can choose to have the Atari solve the cube for you. However players cannot activate the solve mode if the colors have been altered in cheat mode. The solve mode is a step-by-step demonstration, controlled by the fire button, that shows the player each move it is making. Thus players can learn what they did wrong and become better Rubik's Cube solvers.

The graphics in 3-D Rubik's Cube are truly amazing. Each square on the cube is displayed at the proper angle to give a true 3-D perspective. Theory has it that the cube is made up of a combination of playfield and character graphics, which allows multiple colored squares to be shown on the same scan line. The sound effects consist of a beep when rotating the cube, a victory song when the cube is solved, and a harsh crashing sound when the solve mode. It's quite clear that a lot of hard work went into this prototype. It’s a shame that the game was never released.

This will be carefully packaged in a box and shipped U.S. priority mail for free or U.S. express mail for an additional amount.
