"With a set of superb levels and the kind of gameplay that can entice you for either hourly marathons or quick-minute fixes, Theseus is easily one of the best puzzlers available on the iPhone, and that's no myth." Pocketgamer: 9/10 Gold Award

Reviews from the App Store:

* "This may be the best game I have purchased so far."

* "This app is one of the few gems around the app store."

* "Challenging, highly addictive, but also easy to take out and play in small chunks of time, this is the perfect mobile app game."

* "The game is extremely awesome and fun to play. Unlike many other games this was actually worth the money I had paid to obtain it."

Based on an original concept from puzzle-master Robert Abbott, Theseus is a refreshing twist on the traditional maze. As Theseus, you must reach the exit of the labyrinth while avoiding the terrible Minotaur. The Minotaur takes two steps for every one of yours, but follows a strict set of rules that you can use to outsmart him.

The Theseus game engine provides complete control over move history, allowing you to undo all moves. You'll need it, since outmaneuvering the Minotaur can be quite a difficult task. Each level will reward you with that "Ah-hah!" moment when you discover the trick to trapping the Minotaur in the various nooks and crannies of the maze.

This package provides over 85 levels of increasing difficulty. Can you conquer them all? Only the most experienced navigators have been able to solve the final set.

The perfect puzzle game

:
Theseus has tons of challenging levels, a great tutorial that is short but comprehensive, and a simple to learn, hard to master approach. It holds true to the online version that I got into a while ago. However, the best thing about Theseus is that the levels are challenging, but always stay logical. For example, Blocked is another great puzzle game but I sometimes find myself guessing moves until I find the right combination. Theseus requires you to think about the board logically because one wrong move=death. The only way that I can express the difficulty levels in Theseus is with an exponential curve. As the levels go up, the boards get exponentially harder and eventually seem impossible. They only seem impossible, because after thinking about them for hours, the right pattern clicks and I finish the puzzle (complete with the signature, "aha!")

5/5 stars

Professional Quality

:
This greatness about this game is that it's simple to learn but difficult to master. The entire game has a professional feel to it, from the well-thought tutorial missions to the smooth and simple graphics.

Don't pass up this app!

do your part to save the world --- by thinking

:
Bottom Line (but stated at top): buy and use Theseus.

Radical Idea: our world might be better if every adult spent 10 to 30 minutes each day solving puzzles with complexity similar to those in Theseus. Its progression from trivial to simple and onwards to multi-step and then to complex is very good. Rationale: problem-solving is a crucial skill which should be developed in a variety of ways. (Critical/Skeptical analysis of received info should also be encouraged in a parallel fashion --- by other tools.)

Theseus, Subway Shuffle, and SmartGo Touch present three of my favorite puzzle collections. Choose one or all to engage in some non-twitch fun (e.g., not even the brain-twitch frenzy of some BrainAge clones). Since Theseus maze developer, Robert Abbott, has a Theseus-intro Java applet on his website, logicmazes.com, there is little need for an iPod Lite version of this app. Although I have been using the Mac program (also available for LoseDoze) for a while (and am stuck midway in these puzzles), I had little hesitation in buying this iPod/iPhone version --- but I regret overlooking the link at logicmazes.com which would have increased monies paid to Robert Abbott.

I like several features of this iPod/iPhone version:
1) use of Undo (and Redo) is more "seamless" than Mac program
2) move count is shown as "current/best" (info not shown by Mac prog)
3) success at one level gives automatic progress to next level
