BELOIT, Wis.— Patch Products, exclusive specialty distributer of the Perplexus line of 3D maze games, has unveiled the latest design by the creative Perplexus team — Perplexus Warp™!

So what’s so different about Warp? A lot of things! The most noticeable difference is its shape — the current Perplexus games are sphere-shaped, but Warp is, well, a warped sphere. “If one had to name it, it would be called a spherical octahedron, but around here we just call it weird, cool, different, warpy, or the hyper egg. The new shape is also a bit easier to hold, doesn’t roll off a table, and maximizes player’s visibility all in a fun new size,” says Matt Nelson of Perplexus, LLC.

Also new with Warp is the Warp Drive, an external slider used to manipulate the ball inside. This is the first external manipulation device used with Perplexus, and it’s crucial at a certain section of the maze track—you can’t get the ball past it without using Warp Drive!

Perplexus Warp features nine internal cups that act as “baskets” when you maneuver the marble to leap into them, and a new internal pivot that gives the illusion of a magnet sticking to the ball, defying gravity, as it travels across a bridge with no rails. Warp has six flagged check points and 80 challenging events. For ages 6 and up.

Perplexus Warp joins the line of four spherical 3D mazes: Original™, Rookie™, Twist™, and the 2013 TOTY Game-of-the-Year winner Epic™.
