Blaze in Space: Beat a-Maze | Release Trailer

Blaze in Space: Beat a-Maze 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. The seemingly simple task of collecting all the power cores in the maze and reaching the finish line. But doing so as quickly as possible which is more of a test with each level. The complexity of the mazes will also increase. Along with 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 more efficiently the player overcomes the maze. An additional difficulty is that the spaceship turns only when it is about to hit a wall. Which is why it is good to plan in advance and remember the right path in Blaze in Space: Beat a-Maze.

There are more than one hundred and fifty levels to overcome, grouped into constellations. Each level has its own leaderboards, where the best scores of player’s friends or rivals from around the world are recorded.

Blaze in Space: Beat a-Maze is not only a test for reflexes and thinking. The modern graphics and music generation make it possible to create a truly amazing setting for the game. Levels are alive, their elements dance to the rhythm of the beat composed especially for the game. Additional effects fill the screen as the ship accelerates and takes turns. And all this thanks to the well executed optimization and synchronization of all elements.

Main Features:

  • Colorful mazes that respond to speed and music
  • Easy to learn, hard to master gameplay
