When I was cleaning my basement I found one puzzle that my father gave me when I was a child.

I really want to know the name of it! Could someone help me?

The puzzle consist in 4 disks, and each disk have 4 balls. To beat the puzzle you have to put balls with the same color in the same column.

here is some pictures:

That specific one looks like a Varikon tower to me. See

    $\begingroup$ It seems you are right. This is a Varikon Tower, which is basically a simplified version of the Babylon Tower. Good catch :) $\endgroup$ – dmg Nov 5 '15 at 13:51

It seems to be called "Tower of Babel" or "Babylon Tower".
Some sites refer to it as a "Hungarian Tower of Babel", others as "Ivory Tower".

The puzzle was designed by Endre Pap and patented on 2 December 1982.
