Linemaze for Mac

By Jace Fuse Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Oct 17, 2012

There seems to be a trend to very simple games on the Mac, and LineMaze is a good example. LineMaze draws a maze onscreen, consisting entirely of lines and no graphics, then you maneuver through the maze as quickly as you can before the timer runs out. Simple gameplay with no learning curve.

LineMaze installs and executes quickly. So does each maze. Often you have less than one minute to complete the maze, and as time starts to run down the maze starts flashing which is very annoying and doesn't help focus on completion. It would be great if there was the ability to defeat the timer, or at least have a more lenient setting, as some of the mazes will be impossible to solve in the allotted time without a lot of luck. The on-screen display is rudimentary and the timer and score total are in block letters and numbers that look like they came from a videogame thirty years ago.

There's very little else to say about LineMaze. You start at the entrance and navigate to the exit as quickly as possible while ignoring the clock and the flashing maze. Despite our best attempts, we got frustrated quickly and gave up a couple of times. Returning to LineMaze for another try led to the same outcome almost every time. For maze fans, LineMaze is worth the try. If mazes and ancient graphics don't do it for you, look elsewhere.
