A 3x3x3 custom sticker variation, filled with mathematical considerations, which shows a single closed loop line on it.

The Maze Cube bases on a standard 3x3x3 cube. A twistable cube is not a precondition, but it can be done using a Rubik's Cube or Assembly Cube. Against them, the 54 mini-surfaces of the Maze Cube carry just a single color, but each mini-surface shows a small piece of a line on it, which connects to two neighboring minisurfaces. The lines on each mini-surface shall simply be either a straight line, or a right-angle.

All the 54 lines on the mini-surfaces shall build a single closed loop drawn over the 3x3x3 cube. In order to make that puzzle a real challenge, all the eight corner cubies shall be different to each other, and they must not look identical after rotation of a corner. Similar, the twelf edge cubies shall be different and must not look identical after a flip.
