As FingerGaming reports, Mobigame CEO David Papazian has announced that the company's debut iPhone game, a highly-unique 3D maze game, will be available through the App Store next week.

Edge puts the player in control of a colorful cube that moves about a series of 3D, isometric maze environments (26 in all) full of puzzles to solve and hazards to avoid. The game utilizes touch control (default) or accelerometer for control of the cube and, as the developer's gameplay video demonstrates, requires some quick thinking to successfully negotiate the various moving parts of the mazes.

As you can see, Edge looks to be a most challenging iPhone offering.  We're quite anxious to spend some time with this one and share our reactions with readers.

Edge won the Milthon award for Best Mobile Game of 2008 at the Festival du Jeu Video, Paris and is nominated for the Excellence in Gameplay award at the International Mobile Gaming Award competition.

    Cautiously jizzing my pants on this one. Only concern will be the controls. If not implemented perfectly it looks like it might be a nightmare to play.

    This looks impressive to say the least. :) Anxious to see how the tilting is handled because my upcoming game is also isometric and has some tilt controls by tilting the corners of the device. I ended up putting thin indicators on the edges to help with precision. Since I don't see anything like that here, I'm very curious how well this controls.

    At the least, the cube seems to lean a bit before committing so maybe that serves the same purpose.

    I might just have to buy this for research purposes... and maybe to play for fun, too. ;-)

    Developer contacted us and let us know Touch control is default. Tilt is optional.

    This game is amazing and already people are wondering if its going to be expensive and are asking if the game is going to be a low price. If you see quality and can see it is going to look like a great game then surely you should pay for it?

    At the moment a lot of the apps are underpricing themselves to get market/mind share so they can stay on the top 100 lists. All it does is push quality down and eventually people won't see the platform as a money maker because they cannot compete against the free or 59p applications.

    I rember when Classics was being demoed because of its graphical abilities when it came to reading the books. I was happy to pay £4.99 for it, instead it came out at £1.79, bargain I thought. Then a few weeks later it dropped to 0.59p as a test (as the developer stated on his blog) because of this gaming to stay on the top 100 lists. I think that was a shame that that developer has to charge so a low price for what is a quality of the app. Regardless of whether the book are in public domain, I wouldn't have read them otherwise until Classics came along and made it enjoyable.

    I'm not one to turn down a price drop though through appshopper and I am just a regular joe schmoe with limited funds, not a ranting developer.
