Mazeman draws from Pac-Man to add onto its dungeon-crawling experience, putting players in tight corridors as cute enemies relentlessly dog them, but also giving them collectible weapons to fight back against the onslaught of foes as they seek the end of the maze.
Mazeman drops the player into a multi-floor dungeon, having them fight or maneuver their way through it. Each stage offers a key that will let players escape it and move onto the next one, but there are further rewards if the player sticks around and kills all of the enemies in each stage. They can unlock even more secrets and rewards should they find the three hidden gems that are scattered in the most challenging areas of each maze, letting players challenge the game in various ways.
The narrow corridors and relentless enemies draw upon a Pac-Man-like feel. Enemies will chase after the player through the winding paths of each dungeon as they become aware of them, making for some difficult choices in which route to take. The player is equipped with a tool to fend monsters off, but these creatures move quickly, and every maze is loaded with them, making maneuvering just as important as combat. It doesn’t take much to get cornered in Mazeman.
Mazeman also offers twenty-four different characters to play the game with, each with different powers that change up how the game works. Depending on who players choose, they can use bombs, swords, mind control, portals, and other useful skills that add variety to how the game works. Power-ups will also be lying around as well, giving players an even further edge on the game’s quick, relentless enemies.
Mazeman is set to release sometime in 2017.
