Brutal Labyrinth review (iPod/iPhone)

February 23, 2011

“You’re lost in a labyrinth, scream now it’s not too late”

10 word description: Labyrinth game, rolling ball(s), physics, destruction, traps, obstacles, 42 levels.
10 word review: Brutal take on ball/labyrinth theme. Great style, fierce difficulty.

Boom! Keep rollin', rollin', rollin'. Yeah, I couldn't resist that.

You will like this if you enjoy: Labyrinth, Wooden Labyrinth, Little Metal Ball, Tilt Maze, masochism, etc.

My 17th attempt at level 2 is rewarded with ... "Acceptable". That's brutal.

The good news: It’s a great variation on a familiar theme. Starting hard, it feels like you’re playing an extreme set of new levels for an existing game.
The bad news: It doesn’t take prisoners. I fought my way to level 10 in about an hour, replaying many levels countless times. It may prove too tough for some. Luckily, there’s a lite version to try.

This is why it's not called "Pink Fluffy Labyrinth".

Arcadelife verdict: Great style; imaginative puzzles and multi-ball tactics; good graphics, decent effects. Perfect controls (tilt). Very hard, almost right from the start. If you’re bored with normal labyrinth games, give this a try. No easy wins here, but that’s how we like it, right? In all my failed attempts at various levels it never felt frustrating. The style helps it immensely – top marks for that.

Hard won victories are the best. Or so I've heard.
