Blaze in Space is a mix of an arcade game and a logical puzzle. It requires not only great reflexes and coordination, but also planning the optimal route of flight. Since its a roughly simple task of collecting all the power cores in the maze and reaching the finish line. But doing so as quickly as possible becomes more challenging with each level. The complexity of the mazes increase, and all sorts of mechanisms and objects appear to add variety to the gameplay. The reward is dynamic music and animation. The more interesting and wild the better the player has to be to overcome the maze. An additional difficulty is that the spaceship turns only when it is about to hit a wall.
