- If you're new to so-called "shape mods", these are overall a great set of puzzles if you're looking for a change to the mechanics of the traditional cubes. As far as the 4x4+ puzzles go, the centres become more difficult due to the different orientation/shapes of the pieces. The edge pairing becomes easier as the edges have a single colour, and there's multiple pieces of the same colour which you can match up. The last layer of the 3x3 solve (if you solve by reduction) is interesting, again because the centre has a particular orientation so you'll find some algorithms which could be used on the cubes, will disturb the centre of these puzzles.
- The even layered (4x4, 6x6) puzzles will have a tendency to lock up more than the other puzzles, probably owing to the added complexity of the hidden layer, so a problem associated with most even layered puzzles though the shape-shifting can also make turning trickier. I don't intend to solve these at speed, so I take my time to make sure everything is aligned as I solve.
- The 4x4 came with a different colour arrangement to the other puzzles, which initially caused confusion as I was looking at the other solved puzzles to know how to set up the centres. It looks like you can dismantle the puzzle and each individual piece, in order to get the colours to match. It's possibly my puzzle was assembled incorrectly. Of course the solving will not be hindered if you refer to the corner pieces for the colours. This only concerns the 4x4 and 6x6.
