Start and End are clearly engraved on this double-sided maze so the goal is clear.
But finding the route to get there is another thing entirely…
Most dictionary definitions of maze include the words confusion, bewilderment, perplexity. In the puzzle sense, a maze is an arrangement of branching passages through which the solver must find a route.
When the maze is double-sided that doesn’t just mean it’s twice as hard, it means it’s exponentially more confusing and you need more dexterity to control the movement of the ball because it can drop through to the opposite side of the maze with any wrong move.
A common theory of how to solve a maze is the Right Hand Rule.
Q. But does it really work?
A. To make it work you must begin to follow the right-hand wall immediately you enter the maze. If you are already lost within the maze it might not work because you could be following an island wall and go around and around in an endless loop.
Q. Can it work in a double-sided maze?
A. If the maze is a standard maze, not double-sided and with no bridges over paths it can work.
So that answers that question. Back to the drawing board as they say in the classics.
