Amazed (iPhone/iPod Touch) Reviewed: It’s Amazing!

I really like innovative stuff on the iPhone, especially in the midst of things that are done to death on the platform. So, when the words physics, tilt, and labyrinth started jumping off a press release I was reading, I knew I had to forget about putting up the press release, and get into reviewing the game like immediately.

So here we are now on the review of Amazed, a new game by Mexico-based Shifting Minds. The premise of the game is really simple, guide the ball through a labyrinth (maze) to the designated end-point. Here’s the fun part, you’ll have to tilt your iPhone left, right, up or down to get the ball moving in the direction you want!

The game’s physics engine handles the movement of the ball, and well, all I can say is that the results are really impressive.

There are 30+ mazes to navigate through, and the cool thing here is that each level is randomly generated in 3D and they get really big as the levels progress. With a 99 cents price tag and unlimited replayability and cool controls, how much greater can the game get?

But, there are some ways to improve on the game. For starters, the ball could have some rolling animation, and secondly, the game is largely…silent. If that’s the case, the ability to play songs from my iTunes playlist would certainly be nice.

But these two gripes aside, Amazed is pretty…amazing (pun totally intended). Check out the game at the App Store today, click here for details.
