Meffert's Puzzle: Gear Shift Difficulty Level 8/10

The Gear Shift gives a new twist or two to an old puzzle utilising eight rotating gears, which some might think it’s a definite step down from its previously released older brother, the Gear Cube, which had 12 gears. They will be sorely mistaken.

This puzzle is deceptively difficult, and the moment one discovers that the core can be pulled apart the difficulty skyrockets! What was once an inevitability now truly becomes a challenge of logic, for while solving a face or even two might appear simple, the true challenge has only just begun.

Gear Shift was designed by Oskar van Deventer, based on an idea by Bram Cohen.
