My Twisted Assembly Puzzle is one of a very few to combine the elements of an assembly puzzle with those of a twisty puzzle. It consists of three separate parts that fit together in only one way and in only one order.
Each part is a mini twisty puzzle based on a 2x2x2 mechanism. Because of extensions on each part though moves often get blocked so algorithms must be adapted or new ones created. It's a bit like my Cubie Chaos puzzles though they remain in one piece at all times.
As you can see from the photos and video I have made two sticker variations of this puzzle. One has six basic colours like you would find on a Rubik's Cube and the other is covered entirely in gold stickers.
Without referring to photos or video both puzzles are very hard to solve. The six colour one though is slightly easier since the colours tells you where certain squares should end up. The gold one tells you whether a square should be on the outside or inside but little else. If I was to make a third version it would have no stickers whatsoever. You would solve it by shape alone with no clues to where squares should go. This would be far harder than the two I made though less attractive unless I was able to make all surfaces (inside and out) a single colour (coloured plastic).
