The Torus looks seems to be an Tricky Disky although it is easier because one "layer" only rotates 4 pieces instead of 8 in the original.
Anyway: an interesting shape variation.

I started out liking the Torus Rubik's, until I realized that everything twists separately. Makes it pretty easy.

The puzzle is just an Octo (snake) puzzle with less segments

oops, I just checked the game again. My mistake it is not and Octo puzzle since the 4 sections move independently. The Octo only has Top and Bottom. This one has Top,Bottom,Front and Back, as Sandy correctly pointed out.
