Iphone Game Review: Theseus

First off, this is a thinking man's game. If you are looking for the next FPS, rpg, or platformer for iPhone, this is not it.

If you are still reading this, that means you are prepared for a challenging, yet rewarding puzzler kin to Sokoban in a few small ways.

You play as Theseus trying to escape from the Minotaur. For each step you take, the Minotaur takes two. You must make it to the exit before the Minotuar makes it to you and kills you.

You are presented with 87 puzzles all avaliable for you at the start. You are going to want to start with the first 3 as they act as the tutorial and prepare you for the journey ahead.

As you complete each puzzle, you are rewarded with Gold, which I persume unlocks outfits for Theseus, which you access from the level select by tapping the picture of Theseus at the top.

The graphics are nice and get the job done, but since you can unlock costumes, it would be nice to have a way to unlock different tilesets as well.

All in all, this is a great game if you are into thinking puzzles and want a game that makes you think as opposed to just handing you the answer.

Well worth the $3.99

maybe you should apply the thinking youve done during the game to everyday life.
