Review The Maze Runner

Vlad Popa
8.5Excellent
Quality graphics, interesting plot
No multiplayer features, in-app purchases
The Maze Runner for Android is, as the name suggests a rather generic runner game that is based on the movie with the same name.
You are dropped into a maze, with no memory and no way out, forced to join with others who are in the same situation, in a desperate hope to survive. Select the runner you wish to send out to run in the maze and retrieve supplies and find clues. Once the run has started maneuver your chosen runner by swiping and tapping on the screen to avoid obstacles, collect coins, and find clues. Each runner has his own stats which can be improved, but they must be unlocked first, some through in-app purchases and some through in-game currency. Collecting coins in order to upgrade your character or unlock a new one is a bit of a chore and some may dislike that the only way to play certain characters is by purchasing them.
The graphics do manage to stand out, as they reflect the overall serious tone that the game takes, no cartoonish graphics here. The game has some great environments and character designs that truly manage to impress. Don’t get caught in the scenery though, as traps, tight corners and falling obstacles are a threat at every turn.
Overall The Maze Runner is quite a generic runner game. The only things that set it apart are the story and the art style. It is a good game nonetheless but does not manage to stand out much in terms of gameplay. Personally I would have liked it better if some sort of competitive multiplayer, or at least a leaderboard would have made it into the game, still those who like runner games are sure to enjoy this one.
