Challenge your mind in 3D with Freefall, the newest product from the award-winning team at ThinkFun, the world leader in fun brain games. Now available on Amazon, Freefall puts spatial reasoning and dexterity to the test through dozens of challenges to master from maze construction to solution.
Conceived by Dan Kiltsner, best known for creating the line of “Bop It” audio toys, Freefall combines marble runs and mazes much like its predecessor, the 2015 TOTY Award winning Gravity Maze. Freefall takes this classic gameplay into a new dimension by creating a 3D labyrinth of pieces that connect without the need for a board. “Freefall has been more than 20 years in the making and my inventive team at KID Group and I are thrilled to finally share this passion project with the ThinkFun community,” said Dan Kiltsner, Freefall designer and KID Group founder. “The expression and rotation of the game’s design makes it both visually stunning and uniquely fun to play, while also challenging players to use logic and engineering in a way that proves you don’t have to choose between math and art.”
Freefall is also the first game to be evaluated using the new Mental, Emotional and Social Health skills, or MESH, scoring program developed by ThinkFun in partnership with “resilience expert” and family physician Deborah “Dr. G” Gliboa, MD. By design, Freefall helps develop important mental health tools through gameplay that encourages problem solving, perseverance, emotional regulation and cognitive skills.
“Freefall’s design challenges players to take direction and translate static images into a three-dimensional object, encouraging development of key psychological skills such as visual processing, logic, reasoning, attention and perseverance,” said Dr. Gilboa. “The reward of completing the maze and watching the ball fall all the way through further inspires players towards self-regulation.”
In Freefall, players can choose from 60 challenge puzzles across skill levels. Each challenge begins with the players constructing the frame and arranging cups to build a free-standing maze. Once complete, players then work to solve the maze by dropping a marble into the green starting cup. From there, they’ll have to carefully flip and turn their creation until the marble reaches its destination. Those savvy enough to complete every challenge are encouraged to build their own maze, proving they are true masters of gravity!
Fun to play and watch, Freefall, $34.99 MSRP, is suitable for ages eight and up and allows for solo or group play. It is now available for purchase at Amazon.
