I loved it! Still cracking my brain over here. Weird thing to say, but I laughed at "suicide" button at first, and now that's the only thing I'm clicking. The art and the music are awesome. Really great job!

I thought this game was pretty good. I admit it's not great, as I wish there was more action. Happy Pixel Day 2020! I guess I'm not that good at puzzle games. Still, there's some action going on. The graphics are pretty nice.

It's just not that memorable. The music was very nice too. Wow, these games have a lot of views for something just made today! You should be proud of yourself! The colors are okay.

It was made last year for pixel day 2019. Thanks for playing t

Stuck at lv 16 and it's a shame I couldn't finish it, but it was a great experience anyway :D
I'm not really into puzzle games, but Maze Ward's graphics, sounds, gameplay and the puzzles are as retro as it gets and were executed spot on. Congrats on such a cool game :O

Very frustrating, because re-doing everything each time you die is just boring. The concept is nice, a less frustrating game is totally possible if you invent other puzzle.
Maybe the game should give some element of forshadowing, so the player doesn't have to do every mistake possible before completing a level.

Oh god, my brain hurts after that. I just wanted to play some relaxing flash games after my essay. Little did I know, I was about to have my patience tested even further.

In all seriousness though, it's a great game. Definitely one of the most enjoyable puzzle games on the site. It really took some critical thinking, though it was reasonably intuitive throughout.
