App Store: Mazonaut $0.99 | Lite (Universal App)

I played this game while out on a business trip a week or two ago; it had me hooked from the first second. The menu is fairly straight forward. Only four options of Start, Challenge, Options and High Scores. There is an About button at the bottom right.

The game is easy to pick up and start playing. There is no learning curve unless you truly are terrible at puzzles. You tilt the iPad or iPhone to control the speed and direction of the astronaut while moving along the board. Just like in Labyrinth with the floating board.

You guide the astronaut through the maze trying not to slow down and getting sucked into a black hole. Once you reach a certain point it is hands down flight for life. Try solving a maze on the fly while being aware of the tiles that are about to be sucked into the black hole. I only know of two items to help you survive, and that is the boots and jet pack. The boots will clear out an area of maze for you to just rush forward, for a short distance, without worrying about the maze. The jet pack is my favorite. If you can get a hold of one of those, do it. The jet pack will propel you for a long distance giving you a slight lead on the chaos trying to swallow you. I do have to warn you about the jet pack. If you see it make sure you have at least an exit strategy should the tiles catch up to you before you are able to pull an Indiana Jones maneuver for it.

The game is very fun to play. The graphics and animations are top notch, and brings a real enjoyment to the game.
