Mazix

by calrk - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Mazix, or Rubix Cube Maze, is a maze, built on the foundations of a rubix cube, where you can rotate the sides of the maze in order to make new paths.

You can only rotate the side you are on, by being in the center sphere of the side.

You start in the black sphere, and have to make your way to the white sphere, collecting all the keys along the way, in order to access the white sphere, and win the game.

You have a limited amount rockets to break through the walls, that get in your way, if you cant rotate them away.

The controls can sometimes get a little messy around the edges, so if you get stuck, just keep trying to move around and it usually fixes itself.

Good god, this seems complex. Also, fun :-) (although I do had to understand that the missile-pickups look like missiles in flight)

interesting idea, quite complex to wrap your head around the whole thing to actually get there. i ended up shooting my way through :)

That's one of the most original entries I've yet found :) And of the more original purely maze moving games I've ever played.

Very cool game! If I had to nitpick, the guys moves a little slowly and the graphics are kind of plain, but those aren't a big deal!

I like the use of color and the game's distinctive appearance.

Having both the option of using rockets and the ability to rotate was a bit much for me - I didn't have much patience looking for rotation-based solutions because I knew that sometimes there was no solution and I would have to use a rocket anyway.

Unsure of what to do? Collected all the missiles, and the yellow glowey thing, and all I could do was move around the world and hit 'q' and 'e' in the center. An interesting mechanic, but need to know how to proceed.

It says in the instructions, collect all the gold keys, then you should hear a sound, and the white sphere sparkles, then you get to the white sphere to finish.
