Green revomaze

Let's talk about (one of) the most difficult kind of puzzles currently in the market: it's in metal, pretty heavy (take care!), seems to be a quality puzzle (made in UK) and seems to be not dangerous...

Well, that was what you think before :-)
But now after you've taken it into your hands and play with it you notice that it's painful for your fingers and that you're lost in some kind of devilish maze. And what a maze!!

The green one is ranked to be the second easiest revomazes in the series but one of the most difficult to repeat. Anyway, all are difficult to repeat...so...

Always a nice box that protects well the puzzle!




Revomazes are punishing puzzles: you go a bit too far from some milimeters and you will fall in the trap that oblige you to start again (shouldn't it be good also to not start from the beginning but from the middle of the maze for example, maybe something to implement?) !!

So as you know you will have to navigate through the darkness and to avoid traps of any kinds.

About avoiding traps, mapping is always useful, but not that so easy. Perhaps some mapping courses can be useful (videos in the website of the firms)?

Anyway let's talk about the inside, that's what you're interested in, right? :-)

In my opinion there are 3 parts in this green revo:
1/ The first part is easy. You may fall in the traps, but not a lot. And you do not need any mapping to succeed this part.

2/ The second part is a sneaky maze. This is in this part where your fingers will be a bit painful because you need an absolute precision. You need to maintain the revo with both hands without shaking...Very difficult !

3/ For the third part, there are 2 ways. One will lead you to a trap after a peaceful straight forward path. It happened to me. Believing I solved the puzzle, I try to release the pin...unsuccessfullly;-(
The other way will lead you to a maze. Mapping helps a lot. But if you do not make too big moves, you should be successful.

What a joy when you finally solve it!!!!!


And to thank you for your efforts, you get a certificate proving you're a brave puzzler!

I will not assemble it again, so I will keep it like this. I fear too much not being able to open it again.

The puzzle is still on the website, as well with some others. Soon another revo should be released.

If you're a beginner, I really advise you to begin with the blue revomaze. I was a beginner and I began with the green. I have managed to solve it long time after getting it... ;-)


To conclude: a nice puzzle, a very challenging one and something that's worth the money because you will puzzle for hours!
