OctoMaze: The Story and Gameplay

Octagon Game Studio’s OctoMaze puzzle game offers an enjoyable playing experience for every age. Besides, OctoMaze comes packed with thought-provoking puzzles that become more difficult as you advance through the game levels.

The OctoMaze tale is one that revolves around a juvenile octopus known as Aristotle. Aristotle has devoted several years in working out so as to become an adventurer. He would like to rescue the Octopuses tribe from the disgusting Parasites, who are the enemies. Seeing as the treacherous enemies have embezzled items and objects from the Octopuses tribe, it’s now your responsibility to regain them.

In OctoMaze, the gameplay is based on the mission to get back the items by Octopus passing through maze levels controlling a tentacle. During the various labyrinth levels, you’ll have to get around obstructions such as spike walls that discharge gas as, while attempting to collect coins.

Amidst all of these, you’ll have to hit a succession of buttons to continue advancing through the level. While progressing, you’ll be able to crack new artifacts such as flamethrowers, drills, a teleporting device, etc. All of these new items are to support you on your mission. What is more, the various levels in the OctoMaze game occur in diverse settings, including space, a forest, and a city.

Amongst the fascinating features of the OctoMaze puzzle game is the tentacle mechanic, which controlling was incredibly fun. Apparently, the developers behind this game got motivation from classic titles in the puzzle genre. They were able to perfect the formula, as the whole thing including the levels and enemies in the game were specified using fun and pleasant cartoonish art variety. Additionally, the various phases involved in the OctoMaze gam are well created. They were able to remain as exciting as the game advanced.

Although the OctoMaze puzzles are simple to solve, they still offer a significant challenge. They have an undemanding design which at times can prove to be challenging to work out. On the whole, the OctoMaze is properly-crafted, particularly when it comes to controls, which are slick and responsive. Also, the game has agreeable music that goes together with the gameplay remarkably. This further boosts the experience.

What You Might Not Like

Apart from the positive aspects of OctoMaze, there is a part where the puzzle game might stand to get better, for instance, the background art for the various levels. Like for me, the forest-themed series of levels I managed to play had fifteen sub-levels having slight dissimilarity. All the levels had a checkerboard chocolate arrangement with an identical Octopus on the uppermost.

The one thing that could change between the levels was the layout of the labyrinth, which for me wasn’t sufficient enough. Having more specified deviations between the art as well as background would bring a fresh breath into the game. Nevertheless, apart from this quite minor complain, for my part, OctoMaze is still a solid puzzle game.

Summary
All in all, I enjoyed playing OctoMaze game. The puzzle game is a rather entertaining one. It utilizes components of the well-known species of games then provides it with a refreshing experience. Even as some levels may well employ a tad of deviation in its style of art, the smooth controls that are entertaining prevail over the dreary graphic design.
