Atari Video Cube is a puzzle video game developed by GCC for the Atari 2600 and published by Atari, Inc. in 1982.[2] Atari Video Cube was sold exclusively through the Atari Club, run by Atari, Inc.[3] Originally an unlicensed interpretation of the Rubik's Cube toy, Atari re-released the game in 1984 as Rubik's Cube.[1]

The game implements a Pocket Cube, Rubik's Cube, and Rubik's Revenge, but instead of rotating the sections of the cube, the player runs around, switching out the colors. However, the player cannot run onto a square of the same color that is being switched.
