Gravity Maze™ Review



Product Description

Gravity Maze™ (Ages 8 to adult, single player, MSRP: $29.99)
Laser Maze fans will love this marble run logic puzzle, building visual perception and reasoning skills
In this gravity-powered logic maze, you’ll arrange colorful, translucent towers to whisk your marble from starting point to target. Just like best-selling Laser Maze, you’ll rely on your visual perception and reasoning skills to find the single solution to 60 different challenges. The towers can be arranged in many visually stimulating structures offering lots of creative building time, but only one design will successfully carry your marble directly in your target.



MarksvilleandMe reviews Gravity Maze™

by Thinkfun

We haven't had a new logic game in a very long time so this was a really nice add to our family line up of games. It is meant for ages 8+ but my 6 year old was able to do a few of the beginner cards on her own, so what ever is comfortable with your family. My 11 year old really enjoyed it. Gravity Maze is also meant for one player but we were able to make it into a family game by taking turns. If the first person didn't solve it the first time then it went to the next person until it was solved. If you get really good at it I would suggest using a timer  ( which is not included) to make it even more interesting. 


You pick a card and it tells you how to set up the board. There are little dots at the bottom of the cards to tell you how many pieces and what colors you must use to get the metal marble from one point to the next. Don't worry the answer is on the back of each card if you need help, or to check to see if you put it together like the card wanted you to. 


My 11 year old was not sure she had it right but sure enough she did, she was very proud of herself, and continued to do a few more.

The only problem I see or should I say my husband pointed out was that even though he could tell the difference in the color of the pillars, he could not tell the difference in the dots on the cards so we had to tell him which colors they were. He could then play on his own. 

This is a fun game meant for one, but as I said above can be made into a family game with adjustments.
