iBall 38 (aka Equator Ball) is a spherical puzzle with a simple color scheme on its surface. It is composed of 8 fixed elements serving for guidance and 30 moving elements placed along 3 sliding rings. The rings intersect each other allowing different elements to be taken from one ring to another. There is no free space so the elements do not move singly. Instead, all 12 elements of a ring are shifted as one.

The elements come in inseparable antipodal pairs; elements on opposite sides of the puzzle will always stay that way. Solving an element on one side will automatically solve the element on the other.

The aim of the game is that the original color scheme is to be restored by the rotation of the sliding elements.

The entire ball or the different rings can be controlled using different touch gestures. The entire ball can also be controlled using 6 header buttons, one for each view of the ball: top, bottom, left, right, front and back. Tapping a button makes the ball rotate to the corresponding view.
