This puzzle was designed by the incredibly talented Bram Cohen who is responsible for quite a few puzzles in my collection, many of which are incredibly challenging.The puzzle is cast, like many of the series, from Zinc alloy and made to look like an aged copper. The name is beautifully inscribed in the top and the Hanayama name is on the back. The outer compartment has a ¼ circle cut out from the front and back making the puzzle resemble a rather large coppery Pacman - this cutout is extended in the centre to a ½ circle which would apparently give a nice easy slot for removal of the contained pieces. Unfortunately (actually that should be fortunately!) easy removal is definitely NOT what you will find! The contents of the shell consists of another 3 identical plates each of which has a ¼ segment removed (1 large Pacman has swallowed 3 smaller ones). None of the inner plates can slide out because they slot together and are held by the indentation in the front of one interacting with a bulge in the back of the other. All 3 plates slide into each other and they also interact with the outer case - this results in a construction in which it is only possible to rotate them in situ."
It appears like a box-like lump with a hole in it, but is actually comprised of two coiled up virtually identical pieces. You must try to take it apart by sliding and rotating the pieces.

The goal here, obviously is to negotiate the 2 mazes simultaneously and separate the two pieces. Oh and if that wasn't enough then you have to put them back together again! Looking at it, I initially thought it wouldn't be too tough because, unlike the Medal maze, the pathways are a single track with no dead ends - I was wrong! The first couple of moves are really nice and then I got stuck! After a bit of pushing and shoving I got the hang of it and was on my merry way around the track thinking that it was going well. At this point, quite a long way along, I got stuck again and soon realised that the secret to this maze is a very large amount of back tracking on one side before the other side can be moved forward a few steps. This is not a puzzle where you need an aha! moment - it can be solved by trial and error with lots of small discoveries
