Since building physical representations of higher-dimensional puzzles is challenging, we use computer software to simulate them.

What program should I download?

We recommend Hyperspeedcube to get started.

If you want macro support (recorded sequences of moves) or other 4D puzzles, Magic Cube 4D is a good option.

For hypercubing on mobile devices, see Android apps or iOS apps.

Android apps

Hypercubing on mobile devices is not recommended; however, if this is your only option, these apps are available for Android:

iOS apps

There are no known apps for hypercubing on iOS.

If you’re able to connect an external mouse & keyboard, the web version of Hyperspeedcube may work on mobile devices but it’s not officially supported.


  • Orb, for planning puzzle cut depths
  • RocKeT, for finding RKT cancels for 3D algorithms
  • Hypersolve, for generating short 24 solutions and scrambles


This is not a complete list of 4D games. This is specifically 4D software that hypercubers often recommend for understanding 4D geometry better.
