1-5 minutes:Very very very cool design!
6-8 minutes:It seems impossible to solve!
8-10 minutes: Yes! I can get some balls into the right positions but it seems
just luck or that it needs very specific and talented moves by
11-25 minutes:There must be a specific and not random way, i am so close!
26 minute: The puzzle is completely solved :(
Absolutely cool design , genius concept, far more easy than rubik's cube.
I surely recomend it to evryone who wants a fresh and good puzzle, but not to those who seek a great challenge!
Cube experience does not seem to help; I don't know if this goes for "Cubers", but my fastest time on the Cube is a little under one minute, and it still took me a few hours of work (not necessarily all at once) to finish the 360. Regardless, it is a great puzzle for any Rubik's or puzzle fan, and the feeling when you finally solve it is impossible to describe.
PS: Amazon asked me to rate the "Educational Value" of the 360, and I gave it 2 stars, because if you really focus hard enough you can learn about gravity. =P Also, it feels pretty durable, but I can't be sure because I don't throw my Rubik's puzzles into walls or smash them on the floor (even if they can be annoying!).
As a game of skill, this game requires you to be seated, completely still, taking breaths to juggle around the tiny balls; so it lacks the 'portability' of the original.
Overall, this is a novelty game that carries a huge name, and probably, the assertion of it being a Rubik is what makes it precisely fall so short of my expectations.
On the pro side: anyone can do this, even a monkey with enough shaking.
The inner spheres are weighted at one end, with the exit hole at the other, so it is impossible to simply rotate the puzzle to guide the balls to the exit hole, as gravity will pull the weighted end down and the exit hole up. The innermost sphere has one exit, while the middle sphere has 2, each corresponding with 3 of the colored domes.
I've found the most effective means to actually solve the puzzle is to simply shake the thing to spin the inner spheres until one of the balls finds the innermost exit, and then angling the puzzle to the side and tapping it gently to guide the rotation of the inner sphere to line up the exit hole to the middle sphere, and finally to the correct colored dome. Solving the puzzle requires more luck than anything else, and becomes more and more frustrating as you solve the puzzle, with the last ball being the most difficult to place. The frustration is compounded by the 2 exit holes on the middle sphere. Due to the puzzle's design, you have no real control over which hole the ball will exit to, leading to frustrating moments where the ball ends up on the wrong exit hole and you have to start over again.
Others may enjoy puzzles like this, but I did not.

More of a novelty toy than a puzzle. You simply rotate the sphere to get the little balls in the little holes. No thought or strategy required whatsoever.Published 11 months ago by Blue Moon

I got this for my nephew who turned up his nose at it, so I gave it to a buddy's 7 year old and he solved it in a day.Published 13 months ago by Franklin A. Edwards
