Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Touch Maze is a collection of maze puzzles that are solved by dragging your finger from the start point to the finish. The game offers three types of puzzles -- easy, medium, and hard -- making it accessible for most members of the family. The iPhone version of the game is solely a single-player game, but iPad players have the option to compete against another on the same maze.
Is it any good?
Touch-based maze puzzles seem like a great idea for products like the iPhone and iPod Touch, but in order to be fun, the touch sensitivity has to be flawless. Unfortunately, that's not the case with TOUCH MAZE. All too often, the screen will fail to keep up with users' finger drags, taking players' minds off of the solution and focusing it on getting the on-screen marker moving again. That's a problem when playing a time-based game. The iPad two-player version of the game is a nice twist -- and adds to the enjoyment of the app, but ultimately suffers from the same flaws.
