I think that the Copper have two different solutions.

For the other mazes I cannot think of any other maze that have more than one solution. There are shortcuts for some mazes if you use some force and wall climbing but that is not the intended way to solve them.

The Gold Revos are different.. I don't know if the algorithm is different in each one though. KIRK

Looking for a BLACK or PURPLE Revo. PM me if you want to sell yours.

Yes that is true, it differs between the different Revomazes but each maze has just one solution.

It really depends on your definition of "solution". Many mazes have unintended shortcuts, some of which can lead to the exit. The black LE, for example, can be solved rather quickly due to CENSORED. Gold has the intended solution and the CENSORED solution. One of the discontinued mazes has no solutions at all. For the most part, play happens as Chris intended it. Wall hugging in an unfamiliar maze can inadvertently create a new path, but you have to use a significant (illegal) amount of force to do this. This is a bad thing.

I just correct myself. There are only one solution for the GunMetal.

One can argue that every puzzle only has one solution - make the dots line up. But in terms of getting there, I would say that some puzzles do have alternative routes that do not require backtracking to a main route.

Because of the pickle I found myself in a couple nights ago, I would consider Gunmetal to have two solutions.
Indigo - Solved
Gunmetal - Solved
Copper - Solved
Bronze - Solved
Orange - Ordered
Titanium - Ordered
Silver - Ordered
