Unicorn Cube is fun and different but could be better

The turning is a bit stiff, but not a problem unless you want to speed-solve. Lock-ups are rare, unless you're going for speed. My only serious complaint is the sticker quality: all the square stickers have visible creases and a few random ones were curling at the edges or had bubbles underneath. Very minor complaint is the cut depth from the corners is a bit too shallow, leaving very tiny triangles around the centers (this is an artistic opinion, it doesn't affect how the puzzle plays).

This is a fun puzzle to solve! It's something like a cross between a 3x3 and a 4x4. If you can solve both of them, you can solve this by learning/thinking just a bit more.

For example, it has true center pieces, like a 3x3, but the edge pieces come in pairs like a 4x4. You never get parity errors with edge pieces (common with 4x4 cube), but you can get a parity error which is impossible on any NxN cube: it is possible to solve the entire puzzle except one corner is turned wrong! Finally, it is a "bandaged" cube because, in some states, some (or all) of the corners can not be twisted (from a solved state, you can twist any corner).

Arguably a better puzzle than a 5x5 cube which just uses the same techniques of 3x3 and 4x4. A good one to add to a collection.

Fun challenge!

It’s a solid challenge, but not overly complicated. Definitely a good one to test your skills early on. I liked it so much I went on to get the crazy unicorn variant

Unique Corner

I love this unique take on a #x#x# cube. Don't be confused with the arrangements and shapes of the pieces. This is a 4x4.
OOTB this puzzle moved well enough but adding lube certainly helps.
This looks amazing with the classic checkerboard pattern, scrambled or solved. I think if you're looking for a simple challenge but crave something a little different from the #x# big cubes this is what I recommend.
It's advisable to be able to be able to solve a 3x3 & 4x4 on your own before tackling this. You will then find the solve a little more fulfilling.
I the difficulty level is around an easy to mid range experience level.

turns ok

It turns ok, but is a very fun puzzle to solve, and isn't to hard.

Cool puzzle but very bad turning

This cube wasnt hard to solve and is very unique. The turning quality is just terrible. It feels similar to a dollar store cube in how the plastic feels and how the pieces lock up because they are so pointy. Turning fast on this puzzle is out of the question. I wish a company like qiyi would make this puzzle because i think they would put effort into the feel of the puzzle.

Fun challenge

The turning is ok, lock ups are expected since there are so many turning pieces and sometimes the corners can be hard to twist in both directions.

The overall solve is fun to figure out but not too challenging. Id say for difficulty it gets a 6/10. The hardest part is figuring out how to cycle the little center corners.

If you have 20 dollars hanging around and want a fun puzzle for an afternoon I'd recommend picking this one up.

Fun, looks great, and turns fine

The Unicorn Cube is just as fun as it looks. Coming up with it's solution was not too difficult, but it's a very entertaining puzzle to mess with and try to figure out. The turning is ok, with lockups happening here and there. The turning does not impede the solving process very much, and I'd still recommend this puzzle to any intermediate or above cubers.
