In Beat the Game readers find themselves trapped inside a computer game. They must apply their knowledge of programming and algorithms to make their way safely through. The reader is responsible for how the plot unfolds and if you successfully complete the mission you can definitely call yourself a computer whizz.

The Rubik's Quest title Beat the Game is part of a larger series of four exciting books. It takes readers on an engaging adventure into the science and maths behind the Rubik's Cube which in 2014 celebrates its 40th birthday.The series allows children to achieve a sense of 'creating your own adventure story' by using their problem-solving skills in a twisting-turning world of toys and puzzles.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
