SUMMARY: The classic wooden puzzle game for the Android platform

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

Labyrinth is an accelerometer game for the Android platform. This game is a virtual version of the classic wooden puzzle game that you may have played before.

The game is very simple but fun to play. You’ll be guiding a metal ball through a maze with plenty of holes in it for you to fall in. The game times you, so you’re trying to get to the final hole as fast as possible. There’s no time penalty for falling in the hole besides the time that you’ve wasted getting that far and not making it to the end.

The accelerometer works just about as good in this version as it does in the iPhone version, proving that the Android accelerometer is really quite responsive. This is fairly surprising as many games haven’t taken advantage of it like this one has, so it’s nice to see something come along and shake things up.

Unfortunately, the version of the game that we reviewed was only the demo. This was done so that when the Android Market officially allows for developers to charge, this app will be available for a fee. There will be plenty more levels to play through, but you’ll probably have gotten bored playing the game by then.
