Maze-O-Rama isn't going to win any awards for its graphics; however, this simple game proves to be fun and easy thanks to a great story, simple design, and excellent tutorial.
With a very flat, two-dimensional design, the creatures, gems, players, and mazes in this game might remind some users of the simple graphics of an Atari video game system. Luckily, the program makes up for this antiquated design by having simple controls that are a lot of fun to learn, thanks to the silly tutorial, taught by a dragon through text boxes. Gameplay could not get much simpler, which is a good match for the graphics in Maze-O-Rama. While managing your way through the maze, using your arrow keys, users must collect gems and destroy the creatures roaming through the mazes with you. Fortunately, there are no other buttons that need to be pushed to accomplish this goal. The four arrows on your keyboard accomplish everything, which made diving into the game and its story a lot easier.
One fun feature of Maze-O-Rama is a screen detailing what all the items, enemies, and obstacles users will face. This screen provides tips on how best to utilize and overcome each and is great for anyone looking for assistance along the way. While it won't compete with state of the art video games, Maze-O-Rama makes for a good way to waste some time while on your computer. We recommend this free program for anyone looking for simple video game fun.
