Maze Land is in trouble! Eight cute birds have vanished from their nests, into the depths of mysterious hedge mazes!

You are Maze Dog, a chubby puppy who loves to nap, dig and bark! Venture into the deep hedges, find the lost birds, and have some snacks along the way. Good luck!

Short but not too short. Easy but not too easy. Cute but.... there's no such thing as too cute.

Hi xXSilentSXx!

Thanks for the feedback! The difficulty curve is definitely a fine line to walk, so that was a big learning experience while making Maze Dog. In particular, learning the correlation between signposting and difficulty, and making sure that signs are actually helpful to players in areas that might not have a 100% clear path. I'm glad that you enjoyed the game! Thanks for playing. :)

Hi pacheco1989!

I really feel like Maze Cat and Glitch Dog could form a classic duo. Like Pinky and the Brain. Maze Cat would be the brains of the operation, and Glitch Dog would cause the antics. Thanks for playing!

well for such a simple game im surprised i got so into it- 31 minutes, 44 seconds it took since i got a bit stumped on where to go- didnt realise the castle was opened
the puzzle aspects were interesting though sometimes a bit of a ? :o
music started to drive me nuts tbh- nice but the simpleness of it plus this sort of 8 bit for too long can kill ya XD
wish i knew what the rainbow cat was for- only found 7/8 treats have no idea where i could have left the last one
that's about it :3
it's a nice game to kill time on but can make you think XD
4.5/5 just cause the music- i know there were two songs but just needs more work sorry sorry
( now being it's almost 2 am i need a nap too- bork! )

Hi ProjectNetoku!

Thanks for all the detailed feedback! You're right about it not being 100% clear that the castle has been opened after the 7th bird is found - it's amazing how fine a line signposting can be. Too much, and players don't feel like they have freedom. Too little, and things get genuinely confusing. It's up to me to get a little more familiar with this line. :P I'll also remember to include more music in future games too, just to keep things fresh! And you don't need to apologize for criticizing the game! That's what reviews are for! :D

Thanks for playing. :)

This game was fun and the mazes were long. I didn't get bored once! The idea is cute and the little pixel art was simple and not a lot to look at which is good when you're trying to focus. The dog pushing puzzles made it not too difficult but still well thought out!

Hi RadicalFire28700!

Thanks for the feedback! I had previously messed around with some different styles for the background map, but the simplest option proved to be easiest on the eyes. I'm glad that you found the puzzles fun but achievable, as the whole concept of Maze Dog (to me) was to create a game with an atmosphere of discovery, without a ton of frustration. Thanks so much for playing! :)
