Hyper Maze Arcade: the evolution of maze games with an arcade touch.

The gameplay is simple: you control a cube inside a moving maze. When the cube stops at an intersection, youll have to decide its new direction. If you choose right, the cube will continue to cross the maze. If you choose wrong, the cube will follow the wrong path, and eventually remain out of the screen causing the game to end.
As you proceed through the maze, the game becomes more and more challenging and complex!

I'm loving this already. It's another super-hard arcade scorer with a pulsing soundtrack that sends you into waves of adrenaline as you progressively get better. It's a typical maze game with automatic movement, leaving you to choose which direction you take at intersections. It might sounds dull and non-interactive but when the screen auto-scrolls and you panic, you die.

You have to anticipate a few moves ahead, reminiscent of Pac-Man CE DX, where you would spark along the wall when you had already tapped for the next move. Sometimes, you'll send yourself down the wrong path and immediately down another in confusion but recovering is so satisfying. It's very simple and may not appeal to some but there's a cool twitch game here.

There's an unlock IAP for 99c that lets you keep earned XP and remove ads (which are full-screen between games. Annoying, but hardly a reason to complain when you have the means to remove them). There are, unfortunately, consumable energy IAPs that let you restart a game from death, so rather Pay2Win but that seems to only apply the basic game mode. Minimal mode removes this option and there's an upcoming Extreme mode which sounds amazing!

Overall, another great game this year and an indie developer that's going on my watchlist.

Been looking forward to this. Glad it's out already, not glad I'm working.

Downloaded. I'll give it a shot on lunch break.

Don't let that stop you from trying it. It's still fun.

I had such high hopes for it and it didn't quite turn out how I envisioned it would be though...

Only .99 for pro. This gets rid of ads and allows you to save your experience points. Also you get more energy as you play because you get a bunch of energy when you level up I guess. As long as there is a limit to how many continues you can do in a game I might buy it. The energy buys continues.
