As I had recently purchased this from Adam, he asked me to share my thoughts.
At first I didn't realize what I was getting into. I thought it'd be a regular 4x4x4, until I noticed that all the pieces have to be orientated correctly!! Thus all those supercube questions he asked around that time he posted this topic.
I have to get used to these - I don't have any supercubes (other than a picture 3x3x3) so this is going to be a challenge for me.
Anyway, the puzzle is very deceiving! There is a lot of visualization with this one! The Center pieces are in the center, obviously, but not all the same pieces!! Some are at the edge of the puzzle while some are at the tip and is a different shape from the edges - but all being the center of the 4x4x4. The edge pieces are like this as well! Some rectangular and some that are the corner tips! What surprised me the most was the Corner pieces. Now the corners are NOT EVEN AT THE CORNER!! they're inbetween the centers and the edges.
SO VERY MISLEADING!
This is a great transformation Adam! I only played with this for a few hours last night (I just got it in the mail). And was isolated from the world during that time lol.
It's very tricky to trying to line up the twists. Not because it's hard or locks up, but because of all the different shapes you really have to look to see where it lines up. But once you start solving it, and pieces group together you can see a transformation to a more solid puzzle as you get closer.
Very cool indeed.
Still working on solving it completely though. So I'll have to analyze the Dipyramid a little bit more before I dive into that one. That puzzle is a super cube as well. More visualization!
Btw - in terms of craftsmanship. It's really well made, smooth. Stickers are cut well. And the Adam's Cube sticker adds a nice touch
