For those like me who enjoy visual-spatial puzzles, I found this great online arcade game the other day. It has a 3-D maze made up of edges of a 4x4x4 cube that you move through by rotating the cube so that you're facing in the direction you want to go. Unfortunately there is no way to change the difficulty level. The other complaint I have is that, when you reach a junction where you can either go straight or turn, there is no way to make the ball pause at the junction. This leads to a great deal of unnecessary frustration when trying to solve the mazes, but I unfortunately can't contact the author to recommend this seemingly easy improvement.

Once I had gotten used to playing the game, I recorded my times for a set of 15 games, and I averaged about 90 seconds to solve one of those mazes. I would say that if you average under 100 seconds per maze you have pretty good 3-D visualization skills.

Here's the game: http://www.gamegutter.com/puzzle-games/3d-maze/315.html

That kind of game makes my head hurt. :(

Nevertheless I nearly solved it. But got stuck. :x
