What It Is
What It Is
The Perplexus spherical puzzle maze has fascinated players as they try to run a small BB-like ball through a complex maze of twists and turns on a tack inside the clear plastic outer sphere. Perplexus Epic is a more challenging version of the original Perplexus puzzle game. Just like in the original version, players must roll the ball to the starting point and then flip, twist, and spin Perplexus Epic to move the ball around the numbered path and the 125 different obstacles to the end.
Why It’s Fun
This is the hardest Perplexus puzzle in the line. New obstacles require a new level of concentration and finesse as you move the Perplexus Epic around and try not to let the ball fall off the track. It's all about finding the right speed, orientation, and balance. A gentle tap, quick jerk, or slight movement may be all you need to stay on track. For those who have mastered the original Perplexus, they'll like the new challenge that Perplexus Epic presents.
Like any good puzzle maze, there's a fairly complex learning curve, and it takes time to master each of the different twists and turns, but that's what keeps this so engrossing.
Who It’s For
Perplexus Epic is for ages 8 and up, but we think that because of the difficulty level, it's really more for 10 and up.
We've also seen quite a few adults who haven't wanted to put this down once they get started.
What to Be Aware of
Perplexus Epic takes lots of patience. It's a lot of fun, but it will take a long time to solve this puzzle.
For younger players or those who want an easier puzzle, there is Perplexus Original and Perplexus Rookie.
