Hey there, how are you today?
I've a great news: The Lost Maze BETA is out and you can play it directly in your browser by following this link.

What has changed since the official release? A lot!

  • The first ten levels had been reviewed, corrected and remade for some of them
  • Doors, Traps, Keys, it's more challenging now for find the exit
  • Combat system with two types of monsters : Giant Rat and Skeleton
  • The mini map has been removed for now
  • A lot of other small things

The game is splitted into two episodes, the first contains the tenth first levels with originals textures and levels (do you remember ? They are really much polished now). The episode 2 will be released later this summer, maybe in August with new features (some of them are really fun :-) ), beautiful textures, new musics and maybe new platforms...

How can I help ?

It's easy, you just need to play the beta and tell me what do you thing about it. Don't forget that it's designed to be mobile first, so the Easy mode is really easy. If you're a PC gamer I recommand you to start in normal mode.
We have achieved a lot of work since the begining and it's not yet over. I really hope that you will like it.

Ok, tested.
First - I am happy to see so big progress. But I am not happy because of:
- enemies are too weak and fight with them is no any risk to lose
- also physical attacks should be more randomly because now is always -30 HP for enemy and -10 HP for me
- magic? Am I mage? Some explanation, please
- crystals with different colours; nice - but for what I need it? Is colour important? It means something? I had no motivation to collet them all because I did not know for what?
- soundtrack is great... by first 10 minutes. Hope you will put some more tracks than one
- through 10 levels no new enemies, traps and mechanisms... little boring

Also I recommend to record voice at beginning. It was great.
I'll keep my eye at this game ;)

Hi HenryT77 and thank you for this great feedback !

This episode 1 is just a big cleanup with some features of the episode 2. I'll continue to work on combat system for improve it. As you say, I'll upgrade it to be more "random". Internally i use a throw of dice to know if you can block or attack. I'll use it more efficiently for attacks and magic.

About the musics, don't worry the episode 2 has more tracks ;) If you watched gameplay videos of the next version, you can hear some new tracks.

Finally, the episode 2 will contain a new big feature: A quest system. I'll post soon about this new feature but I need to polish it before.

Again, thanks for your interest !
