Weak

By far, not what the name says!

The name says it all, it's a classic game many of us used to have but now it's digital. And if it were a faithful reproduction of the original or at least had that mode on there it'd be great! Labyrinth was never an Arcade game or really even attempted before this.

Sadly, these guys trashed it! It's all done up like a Japanese Dance Dance Revolution style game with high-pitched screaming teen girls in skimpy outfits rather than the real thing. See the box shot? Looks nothing like that and we really wish it did!

Most of the ratings that are keeping it 'weak' at a low rating are because they expected far more from this title than they got when they tried it. Playing more than 5 minutes, it's annoying and you really have to stop. You're rotating the whole playing field, but it's not the usual or even an upgraded maze - it's new fields that are hard to manage or you blow right through them.

The game's built to use the stylus, requires it in a couple places trying to play it, but then you end up balancing the poor thing in your hand while trying to actually play the game using the buttons and D-pad instead. You can't get rid of the stylus, but you have to hold onto it for the few times you need it - more annoying!

So it's worth trying if you're adventurous or it sounds like your kind of game, but as you see a majority of gamers say this thing's a dud.
