== Subtypes == Spatial puzzles often blend together due to having very little commonality besides navigating or manipulating something in a set space. Therefore, the best way to group them is by whether they tend to be primarily set in a physical space, or primarily set in a virtual space. === Physical Space Puzzles === Physical spatial puzzles are most common, due to the aforementioned potential for aesthetic presentation. However, they also allow solvers who are good at working with their hands (or just prefer being able to work on physical puzzles) something to do. * [[Disentanglement Puzzle]] - Puzzles where the goal is to get a piece unstuck from an odd structure, or otherwise untangle something. Also called topological puzzles. * [[Folding Puzzle|Folding Puzzles]] - Puzzles in which a piece of paper must be cut and/or folded into a particular shape either via written instructions or visual indications of cutting/folding (like solid or dotted lines). * [[Jigsaw Puzzle|Jigsaw Puzzles]] - An image, physical object, or other source broken into pieces, meant to be put back together to rediscover what they originally were. * [[Puzzle Box]] - Containers that can only be opened in specific (but unknown) ways, like spinning them, moving specific parts, or activating hidden mechanisms. * [[Rubik's Cube]] - A multicolored cube that begins with solid-colored faces, but can be shuffled to mix up the colors by twisting the outer thirds in various directions. * [[Sliding Puzzle|Sliding Puzzles]] - Puzzles involving moving objects (tiles, blocks, etc.) around into a limited amount of available space, usually trying to get them into a particular orientation, or get a designated piece out of an enclosed space. === Virtual Space Puzzles === * [[Databending]] - Puzzles where digital files must be manipulated (often by changing the type of file they are) in order to uncover hidden messages. * [[Maze|Mazes]] - Puzzles involving getting from Point A to Point B (or to many other points in between) through a series of winding passages.
