    Hi,

    We are proud to announce the amazing Castlemaze for iPhone and iPodTouch.

    What is CastleMaze?
    The amazing world of mazes, riddles, keys, doors, secret places, gardens, caves and much more...

    Game Objective:
    Find all they keys to open up your imagination and they will bump up your skills to open each one of the doors that will take you to an unique world and at the end you will find the hidden treasure inside the Castlemaze medieval castle.

    I am intrigued. The 3D environments look real nice, the only think I'm not sure of is longevity...how many hours of gameplay would you say it provides?

    Oh, and also, it's not really an "FPS" because there's no Shooting

    It depends... you can complete the game in a whole day or less if you play it until finished...

    Hi, you have to find 3 keys. The first one is really easy to find. The others ones, are hidden, but there are some gems around the game with tips to find them out...Each key opens a door in the main room. You will find many books with tips and secrets around the game, so is better to stop and read them.

    It's a fun little game with cool environments to walk through, but it's not really like a maze until the bit towards the end, since there really aren't a lot of different routes to take. I finished this game in about 20 minutes, but maybe I'm extremely lucky. But it IS fun and I would recomend it, despite the short gameplay.

    Hi,

    Yeah, you have been really lucky, but we are happy to know that you finished.
    We are developing an scene where you can get out the castle with the treasure, so stay in touch....

    Thanks for your post.

    There is not much replay value since it's only one maze and once you finish it you're done. But if the dev says they are going to add more to the game, like having to escape the castle with the treasure and hopefully some new puzzles I might replay it.

    Hi,

    Just to clarify, there are three differents mazes in the game, each door you open is a new one with a new complexity.

    I can see how it's three mazes, but they are all needed to finish the game, so i counted it as one big maze. Like I said I really enjoyed this game and I would encourage everybody to give it a try and I hope maybe more mazes will be added to it in the future.

    I guess I can't really justify to myself paying one dollar for every ten minutes of gameplay...

    Ok, so I just played through the whole game. It took me a total of 40 minutes. I can say that my experience with the game, was very enjoyable, just too short. The controls work great, and the framerate is solid. The graphics are also very nice, for the most part. You created a nice little world serrye, but you just gotta find some way to increase the longevity if you want to see some real sales. A few ideas, off the top of my head...

    -make thee different environments more maze-y. The second maze had pratically no forks in it. You cited Realmaze 3D as inspiration, think aobut how hectic it gets trying to find you're way out of one of those mazes, and try to transfer some of the confusion into yours. Put simply, for a maze game, there just wasn't enough maze. Adding more twists and turns, would also increase the length of gameplay, as it would take longer for players to find the keys. Get us lost :)

    -Add in more side puzzles like the one in the last maze

    -Add other creatures/people to interact with - e.g. a dragon in the forest that you have to sneek past,

    -instead of gems, have people that will give you hints, but at the price of doing a side mission

    -Add in weapons :) and people/creatures to duel along the way

    -Make some parts of the maze randomly generated, to provide replay value

    That's all I got for now...
