Pix Maze is the PathPix Pro of mazes. The ultimate goal is not only to complete the maze but also to create an image in doing so. This makes for a rewarding game we a hard time putting down.
You play as a scarab that is able to paint the mazes he traverses after stepping over paint blotches scattered throughout. As you make your way through the maze, a picture will begin to unfold. After reaching the end, it comes to life in a cartoon-esque animation.
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?
There are 72 unique mazes spread across three sizes, although only a few fall into the larger one. Still, there is plenty of content to last you plenty long, especially since the asking price is low at $1.99. Activision also threw in an easy-to-use level editor where you create a picture by filling in a grid and the engine randomly builds a maze around it. Unfortunately, you can only make small and medium images and they can’t be shared with others.
A problem for many will be how easy the game is. If you begin to go down the wrong path, a big X will appear. This makes the game feel very straightforward and too forgiving.
We still found Pix Maze to be a blast. It works great on both the iPhone and iPad, with much better production values than meet the eye when you look at the screenshots. If you have younger kids or a need to scratch an itch for a unique maze game, look no further.
