THE aMAZEing Labyrinth
by: Ravensburger Digital GmbH • 69
Remember this spacial puzzle-strategy board game from when you were a kid? I just found out it's from 1986, which I guess reveals more about me than you, dear reader. Ravensburger Digital GmbH's THE aMAZEing Labyrinth works on exactly the same simple yet brain-bending principles as the original, plus includes a few extra goodies to boot.
The goal is to collect treasures littered about the labyrinth quicker than your opponents, be they humans over a wifi connection/on the same device, or CPUs of varying difficulty. The catch: the maze is dynamic, and you must shift the pieces strategically in order to gain access to your own loot while preventing your opponents from doing so. Apart from the classic game mode, tackle a squadron of time- and moves-based puzzles using the same shifting mechanic.
The spacial reasoning involved is actually really unique and challenging; it translates very well from tabletop to mobile. The difficulty is graded such that it's appropriate for puzzle-lovers of every age and skill level.
It would have been great to see the dev take the opportunity to play with the extra abilities of mobile, like inserting humorous animations into the act of exploring the labyrinth.
Ravensburger Digital GmbH's THE aMAZEing Labyrinth is faithful to the original board game in all the right ways.
