Is It Any Good?

This puzzler does a good job of teaching you how to use its touchscreen controls and ramping up the complexity of its multilevel mazes, but it lacks variety. Mazes have intrigued us for thousands of years, since the myth of the Cretan minotaur, and the app tries to tap into that, since the notion that something's following you through these passages is a great recipe for suspense. The controls are somewhat clunky at first, but once you get the hang of them it's easy enough navigating and/or fleeing from your anonymous enemy. Through the simple sound design, players get just the right cues to warn of impending doom via trapdoor or enemy. Even though there's some problem-solving involved, it's much more about hit-or-miss than truly using your wits to solve a puzzle. Ninety levels are spread across three visual themes, but the differences between them are minimal and don't have enough effect on gameplay. The resulting monotony discourages long play sessions. The app's store page indicates more themes will be available down the line; its entertainment value could rise dramatically if those prove more inventive.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
