Maze guarantees a “fantasy journey” however fails to ship on it. As a substitute, we have now a launch with little or no meat on its bones. It’s a disgrace.
The objective within the storyless Maze is just to search out the glowing exit statue. I hoped for extra collectathon gameplay, one thing to make me need to “Discover each nook of the Maze.” However no incentive is given.
Every maze has a map seen at the beginning and an arrow pointing you towards the exit’s approximate course. These don’t assist as a lot as you’d assume, however I nonetheless want there was a technique to disable them. The arrow, specifically, is an eyesore.
Talking of, Maze doesn’t fare notably effectively relating to visuals. There’s an actual lack of range. The mazes are inclined to look comparable, with little in the way in which of creativity evident. Minimal threats (hearth, spikes) fail to supply a lot eye sweet. There are a lot of glowy spots, however these are extra misdirection than graphical perks. After solely a few mazes, I began to get a headache. No less than you may regulate the look sensitivity.
The music can’t compensate the place the graphics fall brief. The repeating monitor made me lengthy for an precise rating. It provides little or no and definitely wanted to be augmented by further tunes.
With solely 12 ranges (most taking not than a couple of minutes), there’s not a lot to maintain you engaged for any actual size. After attending to degree 10 and noticing no sizable variations between the simple, medium, and laborious mazes, I stop. Displaying your completion time on the finish of every maze suggests a replay incentive, however there are not any native leaderboards, so why even trouble?
There’s not way more to speak about as there’s so little right here. Maze didn’t reside as much as my expectations within the slightest. Its goals are too modest, and its execution too missing.
Maze is a disappointing effort. It feels unfinished and fails to benefit from its premise. Skip this one, and look forward to one thing extra polished.
