What is it?
It is a 5 x 5 x 4 puzzle cube on which the objective is to move a small black ball inside the cube from the top entrance, down to the exit.
The cube is composed of small sections (ROOMS) in four Levels, each Level has 5 x 5 Rooms. The rooms have openings from which the ball can move to adjacent rooms. Depending on the room, you can move your ball side by side or up and down the cube. If the path taken reaches a dead end, the player must return and find an alternative path.
An innovation of this puzzle is that the CORE Rooms of the cube (the 3 x 3 center of Levels 2 and 3) are opaque green and only have passages going from one side of the cube to the other in a straight line without internal bifurcations. This is intended to keep the ball in the outer rooms where visibility is better and this avoids confusion.
The Puzzle Entrance is located on top of the upper level at the center highlighted by a round 4 x 4 plate with a 2 x 2 hole in green color. The Puzzle Exit is down on the lower cube level at one side and also is highlighter with an opaque green color different from the rest of the clear transparent sides of the cube.
Why did you build it?
I enjoy puzzles and I found a way to adapt this concept to LEGO pieces.
Why do you believe this would make a great LEGO set?
It's challenging, easy to understand, and it will provide hours of entertainment.
