As a Christmas present, here's something I've been working on over the holidays - Neurubiks.

It's a free puzzle game. The brain is broken. Can you can restore neuro-harmony?


Download it here.


  • A bit like a Rubik's cube, but less annoying.

  • Millions of possible puzzles.

  • Easy to learn - just click on the blobs.

  • Neuroanatomically accurate.

  • Perfect for killing time while running fMRI analyses.


If you like it, hate it, find bugs or have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments.

If I knew Flash, I would have programmed this in Flash. If any Flash developers like Neurubiks and are interesting in helping develop it please do get in touch.

Apologies to the color-blind. The game is all about colours I'm afraid. Let me know if you have any ideas for making it more color-blind-friendly.
