Hyper Maze Arcade: Uptown Neon Funk

Italian developer Pixelheartstudios claims that the energetic, neon excitement of Hyper Maze Arcade is the evolution of classic maze games. The game celebrates the classics of yesteryear by combining the mechanics of arcade games, and fusing them with a frenetic labyrinth that requires fast thinking, quick reflexes, and a good deal of logic. To play Hyper Maze Arcade, you must control a cube as it travels automatically within the labyrinth, ensuring it makes it safely to the end. Along the way, there will be obstacles that you need to circumvent, power ups to collect, and clouds of energy that you can use to assist you on your run.

The game is currently looking to get Greenlit on Steam, with plans to release on PC, Mac, and Linux featuring enhanced graphics, a completely new adventure mode that boasts rogue-like style gameplay, and more difficult levels. Hyper Maze Arcade is currently available for free on iOS devices, and can downloaded from the App Store. To run correctly, it requires iPhone 4 (or newer), iPad 2 (or newer), or iPod Touch (5th Gen). The game comes with its own OST by Konrad See, which you can listen to here and purchase in its entirety.
