iGlobe 38 (aka Hungarian Globe) is a spherical puzzle with the
map of earth 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 picture of the earth
is to be restored by the rotation of the sliding
The entire globe or the different rings can be controlled
using different touch gestures. The entire globe can also be
controlled using 6 header buttons, one for each view of the
globe: top, bottom, left, right, front and back. Tapping a
button makes the globe rotate to the corresponding view.
