(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)
Mowing Mazes is the newest game by Protostar and a spinoff to their game It’s Literally Just Mowing. Mowing Mazes plays similar to something like Tomb of the Mask, where you swipe in the direction that you want to go and the mower will travel until it hits a wall or obstacle. The object is to make it out of each yard maze while cutting the grass. The game starts off pretty simple, but once you get past the first dozen levels or so, things can get a little challenging. Mowing Mazes isn’t overly difficult. You’ll bump into ramps and portals that change things up a little, but there’s no predetermined amount of moves to make it in, so each level is basically just trial & error. As you progress, you’ll earn coins that you can use to purchase chests that’ll unlock new outfits and mower parts. Mowing Mazes is a fun little game that unfortunately doesn’t live up to its predecessor. What made ILJM so charming was the satisfying cutting of the grass and zen-like experience. It was literally just mowing like the title says. Mowing Mazes levels can be satisfying, but it’s hampered by a timer system. Meaning that you can only play around 10 levels before you run out of “keys”. (Luckily there’s an IAP to get rid of them) If you were a fan of It’s Literally Just Mowing, chances are that you will like Mowing Mazes at first. It’s got the same cute visuals and some enjoyable mazes to figure out. I just worry that there isn’t enough there to keep people playing.
