Magical Eye Maze for Android

Editors' Review

by   / April 17, 2014

Magical Eye Maze sounds cool, but this free Android game doesn't look so good, at least on our phone's screen. It's an intriguing concept: a basic 3D maze, obscured by a screen of random dots. You must focus "behind" the dots to see the 3D stereogram, and trace the basic maze pattern, which starts (randomly) on one side and finishes on the opposite side.

Pros

Cool idea: Magical Eye Maze combines optical theory and a basic task to achieve a new objective: fun.

Free and easy: This free Android app is small in size and required no special permissions. However, installation might be tricky for some users.

Cons

No Play Store: instead of just tapping "Install" in Google Play, you must install Magical Eye Maze the hard way. It's really not that difficult, and you should know how to do it, but it's a bit of a nuisance.

No play, too: In the end, we couldn't see enough to navigate a maze. Using the "Unfocusing" option as far as it would go only yielded grainy, ghostly images (think "Poltergeist"); and swiping a finger changed the color, but that's about it.

Bottom Line

We tried every way we could to see through Magical Eye Maze's dot matrix to the puzzle beneath, to no avail. It's possible the game renders better on devices older than our Android 4.3 smartphone; so if you're interested, give it a try. We like the concept, and the fact that Magical Eye Maze is free as well as ad-free, but in the end being unable to actually play trumped a good idea.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
