Perplexus is a maze game where players must maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus houses various exhilarating tracks with 100 barriers and provides a three dimensional experience. Players select which track they would like to attempt, and then must work with gravity and carefully shift, flip, and twist the sphere to guide the marble.
Players can race each other or the clock. On top of being entertaining, Perplexus is also an educational toy, and assists in child development. It is a great toy for children to exercise their motor and dexterity skills, as well as improve their hand-eye coordination. Its small size makes it easily portable. No batteries required and is well suited to children from the age of three all the way up to adults and beyond.
The perplexus puzzle features a 7.4mm ball-bearing; 16 drops; 23 screws; 63 plane changes; 100 points; 126 railings and 673cm of pathways.
The Basic Perplexus Challenge
Basic Challenge gameplay is the most fundamental and non-competitive. Everyone starts out here. Many are satisfied with this level of play, and never try to reach the levels needed for competition of Head-to-Head challenges.
Its essence is to simply learn to navigate spatially and tactily through the Perplexus. How do you get on the START position? What is a PLANE-CHANGE? Where do I go from here? This includes the “Ah Ha!” moment when the player first discovers the true 3D experience of Perplexus. Also included in this style of gameplay is exclaiming how much you hate the thing! (before you pick it up again and start over).
The Basic Challenge is a journey of self-discovery, patience, perception, and focus. Many beginning players cannot stop themselves from telling others about Perplexus.
