Many of you didn't have the occasion to try Manifold. It's still possible to print some puzzles here, but maybe you don't have time, or the right paper and printer to do it. So let's look at one example.
Manifold is the unexpected fusion of a Rubik cube and Origami. Starting with a square piece of paper, the goal is to bring all the black spaces on one side and all the white spaces on the other, only by folding.
The game has 100 levels, all very different from each other numbered the easiest to the most difficult. Let's have a look at level 10.
First, I fold most of the white spaces on the other side.
Then, I do the same for the large gray area.
After flipping the paper over, I realize that the white spaces are hidden, but I can bring them back by bringing a large triangle back on top.
Finally, I carefully hide the gray squares on the right, behind the white ones. At the same time, I bring the last white square to the bottom right of the puzzle.
