|New twist on
SOMA Cube Puzzle
Ethereal Maze Puzzles are mazes that you solve by rolling a ball through an innovative new three dimensional lattice structure which forms the maze paths. The goal is to roll the ball through the Labyrinth Maze from the entrance to the exit. An additional challenge is to navigate the ball from the exit back to the entrance.
Brand new for September 2013 is "Snaking Stairways". This has the longest and most twisted path of any maze so far. The featured maze game puzzles are the original: ?Zig Zag Zog? (easy), ?Floating Labyrinth? (intermediate) and ?Escher?s Playground? (advanced). Start out with one of these, or a pack of all tree. The next two models added in 2012 are ?Twisted Symmetry?, ?Minotaur?s Castle?. I have incorporated symmetrical designs on the faces of these mazes. I have also made these models larger in size and thicker so that it is easier to paint them if you like (photos of painted mazes are found on the product pages for these mazes). Try one or both of these new brain fun mazes after you have mastered the featured puzzles. They are both advanced difficulty, but one of these is a little easier than ?Escher?s Playground? and one is more difficult. In my next maze design many of the rods making up the outer wall has been removed. To keep the ball contained in the maze it is held in a clear plastic case. This exposes the skeletal inner framework of the new "Bare Bones" maze. This also has rods added to impede your path and others removed to lead you astray. All this make for an expert level maze.
I have also been designing some assembly puzzles. The first is a new twist on the classic SOMA cube puzzle. This is called "SOMA's Revenge" and it is an interlocking assembly cube puzzle with sliding pieces. The new and unique challenge for this puzzle is to assemble the pieces into interlocking cube configurations. It also has hundreds of other challenges that involve assembling the pieces into various figures.
