An accelerometer based puzzle game for the Android platform

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Amazed is a game for the Android platform that takes advantage of the accelerometer. In this game, your goal is to guide the white ball through the maze and reach the green end zone. While this game is simple, for a launch title, it does give you a good feel of how your phones accelerometer works.

Once you load up the game, simply hold the device out with two hands. Tapping the screen releases the ball and it's now up to you to guide it across the map and to the green square. This may seem easy, and it definitely is easier at first, but the further you get into the game the harder it is.

Once you beat a map, your time is added on down bottom. This is a great way to keep track of how well you're doing and possibly set a high score. You only have so many lives and Amazed will tell you this by displaying the count in the bottom right side of the screen. When you lose all three lives you'll have to start over from level one.

Amazed is a really great game to show off the accelerometer. As a game itself, it's something you won't be playing for very often. Even with so few games out at launch, Amazed isn't going to keep you hooked to your Android phone.
