Gameplay

Make a character and fight your way through floor-after-floor of mazes. Each floor is in fact, a maze (hence the name) — and each maze is in fact, full of maidens (which must be destroyed!) You’re spawned with a wide variety of randomized gear, all of which augmented with stones. Stones are used to infuse your weapons, enhancing your stats or granting regeneration. Each enemy you kill drops gold, which can be used to purchase new gear or sex moves. Instead of killing your enemies, you can choose to rape them instead (but you’re the only one that’ll get hurt — so don’t do it!)

Let’s talk about improvements (and I hope you’re taking notes Wijat!)

The mazes are terrible! It sucks navigating each maze, and progression isn’t fun. You’re expected to kill all enemies before being moved onto the next floor. Considering how boring each maze is, being forced to eliminate all foes exacerbates the boringness of each level. It’d be more interesting to find an exit, with enemies forming a natural barrier. Perhaps in later levels, the player has to find one or more items (such as keys or switches) to leave the stage. They’d still have to fight wandering foes, but they’d have the option to conserve stamina by avoiding conflict. On that topic, it’d be interesting if your equipment breaks overtime! It’d be great if you could find treasure chests, filled with gold or equipment. Alternatively, there could be power-ups scattered out and about (perhaps granting increased damage, speed or even flight!)

Story

There is no story (and I’m not making one up!)

Visuals

The titlescreen is off-balanced and visually uninteresting. From “Setting”, you may adjust audio, censorship, control, display and resolution preferences. The user-interface isn’t pretty, but it works. I wish each in-game menu could be accessed from a single key. Instead of each menu being assigned it’s own key, I think it’d better to have a “tab” system. Tabs could be quickly accessed from individual keys, but the shebang should be condensed. This game would benefit from some form of tutorial. There are lots of menus that are not explained. . . you’re expected to guess your way through the game.

The Goods

There are three sexual animations. They must first be purchased with “gold”, which is acquired by defeating enemies. When fighting enemies, you have the option to “grapple” them; if you’re successful, you’ll force them into a sexual animation. Unfortunately, there is no good reason to rape your foes. As a matter of fact, chances are you’ll only let them score free hits on you! You won’t gain any sort of reward, just a beating. . . kinda like real life huh? There is little camera control camera control, and the animations aren’t impressive.

Let’s discuss a few ways sexual content could be improved!

First of all, sex should be rewarding. When you try grappling enemies, you risk injury (or in some cases, death). The most basic reward for sexual assault would be damage — in other words, it could be a form of attack. Perhaps, sexually grappling an enemy could be a way to steal their gear. As enemies are randomly equipped, it would be advantageous to sexually assault powerful foes. Alternatively, it could be a way to gain stones or gold pieces. Also, it’d be nice if enemies could sexually assault the player — it’s only fair! Also, it’d be cool if there was a way to randomize animations!

Verdic

Wait for updates. Maiden Maze is a cool idea, but poorly executed. Despite its looks, I was eager to sink my teeth into this game. Unfortunately, I kind of regret having anything to do with it. To be fair, Maiden Maze could be really, really awesome! I love customization, and every piece of gear can be customized! Randomized foes and floors means huge replay value — at least, if the game was actually fun. Every floor is just the same, and despite the randomness of encounters, fighting isn’t challenging or fun. As much as I enjoy sex mechanics, you’re punished for trying! As it stands, Maiden Maze is a no-go in my books. However, I’d be sure to keep an eye on this game. . . it could get awesome.
