When a video game gets very successful, it’s only natural for developers to want to create a sequel. It’s also natural for developers to try out new ideas when they make their sequels, including the notion of drastically changing the gameplay and the style of the game in question. The Legend of Zelda is an example of this when they made Zelda II for the NES. Although it had a nice overworld map, puzzle-filled dungeons and various caves to explore throughout the land of Hyrule, Zelda II controlled very differently from its predecessor. In fact, I imagine present-day Zelda fans who didn’t grow up with this title would not be overly fond of this game because of how different and how difficult it is compared to the other games of the franchise. However, it’s still a part of the Zelda lore and is definitely worth a look at.

Before moving on to other Zelda titles, I wanted to get completely caught up with the series (at least up to Majora’s Mask anyway) and fill in any gaps I left hanging beforehand. However, Zelda II wasn’t a game I was overly familiar with. In fact, before this playthrough, I had only completed the game once beforehand and that was a few weeks before the end of 2017. So safe to say, I was going into this title with only a little practice and not a great deal of experience. However, from when I played the game, there were definitely some things I appreciated and liked about the experience, so at the very least, you could say I wasn’t repulsed by the game to the point where I just didn’t want to cover it at all. So I figured it was as good of a time as any to finally mark this off of my Let’s Play list, and here we are!

What happens when an old maze game gets redesigned with a brand new look and more complex puzzles? You get The Maze Game Remastered, a new game from the same mind that brought you the original, with a much improved graphical interface. I hope you are ready to save some pink bears, because the green bear is ready for action!

So at the time of this project’s beginning, I was completely unprepared to even cover this game, having two other games on the mind, but when my computer decided to crash and ShadowMarioXLI decided to taunt me to take on the challenge of The Maze Game Remastered in the meantime, that was a challenge I couldn’t refuse. This game is not just a simple remake though (although it does feature some similar layouts from the original), as it features new puzzles, new obstacles, and most importantly, a complete graphical rework by my good friend MegaFreak400!

A green teddy bear has been lost in a maze, and the forces of pure evil (which consist of ghosts, spiders, fire, and extreme puzzle solving) are out to stop him from accomplishing his ultimate goal of escaping with his life.

This game was a Game Maker product created by Youtube user ShadowMarioXLI, a friend of mine back in the day, and to help him get some more exposure, and show off this game in general, I decided to play this game and give my thoughts on the madness that is The Maze Game.┬áThis project has been referenced as a bit of a joke throughout my videos and it is heavily assumed in these jokes that I hated The Maze Game and everything about it. These claims are not exactly true, and I encourage you to check out the true nature of the Maze Game for yourself! Just be careful…there may be ghosts following you!
