Can you blast through the fiery maze before the timer runs out, thus changing the course of the Universe forever? Give it a shot with Power Maze Finger, from Clarusoft, for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. It’s a fast-paced, frantic yet fun action and puzzle app for the iOS.
In Power Maze Finger, you are tasked with moving the fireball of power through ever-challenging mazes, all before you run out of time. It starts out fairly easy, but quickly becomes more complex, with twisty puzzles and confusing routes, flashing lights and dark tunnels.
There is a slight bit of lag between loading screen with Power Maze Finger, but nothing too serious. However, I did find that during the actual game play, lag became a little more of an issue.
Sometimes the fireball didn’t quite respond as well as I would have liked. Still, the game is quite playable and very fun, even with the occasional loss of connection between the touch screen and the fireball. The actual game play concept is really easy to figure out and is super addicting once you start.
Graphical Layout and Sounds:
Sharp Retine Display graphics, glowing animations and a easily-navigated layout- Power Maze Finger has it all! The animations of the fireball moving across the screen appear quite visceral and intense. The maze’s glow mysteriously, adding to the unique ambience of Power Maze Finger. Throw in some really upbeat and epic music, and Power Maze Finger pulls you into the game! The soundtrack is excellent and matches the frantic, fast-paced nature of Power Maze Finger perfectly. The main game screen is fairly simple and straight to the point, as it only includes a “Start” and “Hi-Scores” set of options.
Power Maze Finger is a pretty addicting game, despite some of its flaws. I found myself constantly trying to beat my high score and race through the next level. Each level is fairly short, but they can be really challenging if you aren’t quick.
The animations and controls are overall very good and even for $1.99 it’s a fairly good deal for this game. It’s an interesting concept for an action/puzzle game and Clarusoft has a winner of an app with Power Maze Finger.
