Challenge Your Brain with BallMaze
With so many flashy and graphics-oriented games out there for Android, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find a good puzzle game that rewards thinking and planning ahead multiple moves. XDA Forum Member oprisnik wants to change this with BallMaze.
The game play of BallMaze is simple. You control a ball, and you need to
send it home reach a target tile. Your goal is to do this in the least number of moves. Unfortunately, however, it’s not as simple as it sounds. Once you move the ball, it keeps rolling until it hits an obstacle block. Further compounding the difficulty, later stages have obstacles of different colors, which can be toggled in order to get to your goal most efficiently.
While seemingly simple from the outset, BallMaze offers quite a bit of challenge and complexity to those looking for a good puzzle. Make your way over to the game thread to get in on the action.
