Once upon a time the Rubik’s cube ruled the puzzle world. It was, cool, iconic, reasonably hard to solve – but now a fresh and exciting challenge has emerged. The Inside³ Labyrinth Puzzle Cube is a blind three-dimensional maze, where you must steer the ball enclosed within from one face to the other, out of the darkness. There are 5 different cubes to choose from, getting incrementally more challenging and requiring delicate hands and steely determination.

Each cube is comprised of seven labyrinthian layers to get lost in; these then combine to make up a mind-bending, multi-storey maze. Thankfully there’s an engraved map of each level on one of the faces, and the actual cubes themselves can be dismantled and re-constructed if need be. However, if you dare to attempt the harder cubes you’ll be deprived of both these luxuries. It’s just you and the cube.

Like a modern day Theseus, it is up to you to push your spatial awareness skills and patience to the absolute brink in order to guide this helpless ball-bearing to freedom. Trust your senses, feel and hear your way. Gently tip and rotate it or frantically shake it (or hurl it at the wall in desperation).
