Maze game with depth and complexity, fun graphics

This is really fun scavenger hunt game for maze lovers. It's beautifully rendered and seems to go on endlessly. The mazes are all pretty complex and challenging, requiring driving, then walking, then driving again, and lots of navigation hurdles. One of my sons found it a bit frustrating but the other loved the challenge.

Is It Any Good?

Moving around through ROXIE'S A-MAZE-ING VACATION ADVENTURE is so deceptively easy (you just drag your finger along a path) that you won't realize at first how challenging these labyrinths really are. The map has over a dozen different areas, all of which are connected in multiple ways. Each area has its own set of objectives to reach, but you'll often have to leave an area and circle back through several others in order to reach a needed location. Figuring out just how to reach a spot -- avoiding one-way streets, crossing a body of water, moving beyond a footpath where no vehicles are allowed, etc. -- can sometimes take a lot of thinking, but it's always great fun. And the best part is: There's no need to rush through and struggle to hit all the objective points right away. You can simply tool around and explore this massive landscape at your own pace.
