If you are new to Oculus Go or even if you have been dabbling with VR for a while now. World of Mazes is sure to be a game that you have heard of. Not many games manage to be as addictive, tricky and also have a great story like World of Mazes does.
What really took me by surprise about World of Mazes was how story driven it was. Too many puzzle games just have puzzles thrown together with nothing linking them together. World of Mazes actually has a strong narrative running through it so you care about solving puzzles and getting to the next one.
You are imprisoned with a guy called Gelayon and he informs you that he is actually a servant to a kidnapped princess called, Maya. He gets you to help him escape and the two of you head out of the maze in order to save the princess. The storytelling is great and you do actually care about these characters.
Of course, having a story is great and all, but what about the actual mazes and puzzles? Well, these are quite challenging, but I found them to be a lot of fun and never challenging to the point where they were frustrating. There are tons of different mazes that you are going to have to get through and each one has its own set of rules, challenges as well as characters that you will have to deal with.
One thing that I think is really cool is that these mazes will change each week. This keeps things not only fresh but makes it much harder for you to cheat and look at a guide online. When you complete one maze, you always wonder where the heck you will be sent to next.
There is a great variety to the mazes in World of Mazes. You will start off in what is an Aztec style of maze. This is a rather smaller scale maze compared to what is to come. This maze is greener and full of life. In comparison, there is the Grezorth Maze. This one is much bigger and has a more ominous feel to it. It is not just the mazes, but the characters and creatures that you interact with which are different from maze to maze as well.
Of course, the main goal of a maze is to get from the start to the portal at the end of it. Doing this though will require you to do many different things that differ from maze to maze. This ranges from talking to a character, sneaking around and finding and using an object to get past a gate, cavern or whatever. There really is a lot of variety from maze to maze and it always keeps you guessing as to what you have to do next.
I have played a lot of maze games on the Oculus Go, but I feel that World of Mazes really is one of the best. Not only does it have some great maze designs that offer challenging puzzles to do. World of Mazes also has an interesting narrative with characters that you actually care about. This is well worth checking out and I highly recommend that you do!
