Mazement, the ridiculous ball rolling game with a story!

OVERVIEW
Blue balls. Man’s worst nightmare and apparently every other pointy shape’s nightmare in Mazement! Mazement is a ball rolling game that is a traditional puzzle-labrynth type. Players control the tilt of the playing field and must guide the “hero” (the chosen blue ball) through the many challenging mazes, fighting off enemies or overcoming the traps.

STORY
Mazement features a “light-hearted” storyline where all the balls in the world have been imprisoned by the other shapes and there’s only one ball that can free them. Players must take control of the one ball and roll their way through the mazes and free their brethren from bosses like The Executer and The Witch. But as oddly entertaining as the opening cinematic is, there wasn’t much more of a wow factor added by the story.

GAMEPLAY
It’s been a while since I’ve played a game similar to Mazement, the last game might have been Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble, which was over a decade ago…  The main objective of every level is to make it to the end of each maze. They added different side objectives throughout every level, such as grabbing all the coins, having a fast completion time or freeing your blue relatives from their cages, which gave the game more replay value. One part that I didn’t enjoy, is that there was no limit to how many times you can fall to your doom. Limiting the amount of lives during Mazement would force the player to take the level more seriously rather than bum rushing each stage!

MECHANICS
I downloaded Mazement on Steam and the controls on the computer weren’t user friendly (maybe I’m just rusty with this kind of stuff.) But if you’re interested in trying out the game, I would recommend playing the mobile version of it. Due to the sheer fact that it’s easier to tilt a phone rather than tilting the board with your mouse. But once you get used to the controls and progress through the game, the mazes start to get more challenging and if you’re an overachiever like myself, you’ll do your best to get 5 stars every stage.
 
Mazement can be one of those games where you can play through it quick for the story line or end up getting caught in trying to get the best score possible. You’ll never know until you try it out! Happy Rolling!
