In order for this to qualify as a puzzle, there need to be clues about what you need to do. As it is, it's just a riddle without a question, forcing you to guess randomly until you somehow stumble upon the right answer.

Does this puzzle only involve the steps? What I mean is, are there other sensors that require you to spin, flip, or do other not obvious things to the puzzle?

FLEBFLEB (1 month ago)
I posted a livestream I did where I solved all the way through it, but it involves a motion/rotation sensor, a light sensor, pressing multiple buttons at once, but it uses all these sensors in very clever ways!

Ah, you streamed solving it. :) I'll have a look at it in full length. Thank you! :)

FLEBFLEB (1 month ago)
I actually solve through the entire Nemesis Factor in another video on this channel and I attempt to explain what's going on while I do so. (Some levels are more successful than others).

But in general, you do get some good clues from pressing or rotating the puzzle, and then you have to figure out how to put it together.

There is more guessing than a typical puzzle, but I really enjoyed it myself!

LaughingTeapotLaughingTeapot (1 month ago)
It's over very quick, the main focus at that moment is probably on you and Nemesis Factor. But I can tell you, maybe not many, but at least one was highly entertained. ^_^

NF made me think. It sounds promissing on one hand, but a bit like trial and error on the other. Mechanical or physical pusszles got some kind of affordance what you could do with certain components or you know heuristics that help you predict how they will behave in that context. If your experience helps you to a solution or, even better, something acts surprisingly different, and it is fun.

Electronical puzzles (with the electronical part not visiple, so with no focus on the physics behind it) lack those heuristics and affordances. What I would expect is a pure logical solution where it takes a few steps to get the clues and than I have to make a mainly cognitive efford to solve it.

At least this was my impression, but I am not experienced in the spectrum of puzzles. In fact I did not know there are so many and beautiful puzzles until I found your channel. Please keep it up, it's great!

Dude I remember growing up with this thing sitting on my sisters desk and I've never had any idea what it was! I just remember grabbing it and messing with the buttons when it was off XD I showed this video to my sister and even she didn't quite remember what it was XD I guess she didn't even get passed the puzzle where you have to press the buttons multiple times. We were looking at hers and neither of us remembered the sticker on the bottom that says the clattering from inside doesn't mean it's broken.

You really should one day :) I can highly recommend them! Sturdy, good quality, a nice feel of progression, very satisfying to solve but really tricky especially as you go further into the series! I'm definitely hooked on them. I will look forward and hope to see a video of the revomaze from you in the future if you decide to get one :)

Man, I still have my Nemesis Factor. (I can see it sitting on my shelf from here!) This was one of my favorite electronic toys growing up. I never did finish it, though I suppose I still could, but I certainly had a lot of fun with it.

Matthew WarnickMatthew Warnick (2 months ago)
While I'm glad this puzzle is getting some attention, the video sadly does NOT do a good job demonstrating the complexity of Nemesis Factor. This puzzle includes audio clues, a motion sensor, and a light sensor. Many puzzles require identifying patterns in seemingly random words, numbers, or sounds; orienting the puzzle a certain way; or controlling whether the puzzle is in the light or dark. Later levels combine these elements for some pretty tricky puzzle solving...

I bought this on clearance at KB Toys for $5 about 10 years ago without knowing what it even was. Still one of the best puzzles I've ever played! :)

I wish you would've shown some of the more complex puzzles later in the game, rather than the first 5, which were clearly just slight variations of each other. Like some that make use of more sensors. All you really showed us was a form of Simon. :P Still, love your videos FLEB! Keep up the interesting puzzle showcases.
