Maze (bandaged 5x5x5)

Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
One of only four possible bandaged 5x5x5 with the highest possible degree of symmetry.

There is obviously a huge number of different possible bandaged 5x5x5's. Many of these are duplicates of each other. Others are nonsense since they block so so much moves that the puzzle gets equivalent to a bandaged 3x3x3. Of the remaining variants (still a number beyond the billions) only a fraction is symmetric in a way and only very FOUR have the degree of symmetry this variant has.
Realizing all this it is not surprising that it was the same creator who presented another of the four variants (5x5x5 with bandaged centers) two months earlier the same year.
In 2011 mass production of this variant was started. These variants are quite easy to build. All which has to be done is to take a 5x5x5 and glue the appropriate tiles on them. Nothing more has been done for the mass produced variant.
