The PERPLEXUS TWIST player spends most of the time going directly back and forth between the “red” and “blue” halves of the sphere via a series of connecting ramps or “Spokes”, most of the spokes contain at least one obstacle but there are several segments where you travel along more traditional tracks and have a prolonged stay on one side or the other. Usually the blue half as it is locked to the sphere and the player has greater control.
The ball has been divided into two halves. One rotates while the other is locked, and the player has to align both gravity and the tracks to continue. All of the transitions are very fun and original, they properly utilized the full potential of the twisting mechanic. Including one memorable transition where the player pins the ball between 2 arms and flips the sphere 180′ while the marble is being held.
When you fail, you can get right back to where you were because the track bases near the handles have multiple grooves for you to direct the ball back to where it was. The dead ends are quite entertaining because They lead to many cool “Aha!” moments as you discover how and where the track continues, adding yet another fun mindbending layer to this puzzle. For 6 years and up.
