    Mind Maze is a compendium of minigames in which intelligence and skill with the stylus are the basics to solve them.


    - How to Play.

    Main Menu
    -------------
    At start, Mind Maze ask us to choice if we are right or left handed and give us the possibility to switch languages (English / Spanish).
    In the Main Menu, we can move the icons with the stylus, moving them right and left. To select a minigame or option, we must tap the desired icon twice.

    1st Mini Game - Slide Puzzle
    ----------------------------------
    The objective of this minigame is to solve a sliding tile puzzles of 3x4 in the shortest time possible with the less amount of moves.
    A better score, gives you more credits to buy more puzzles.

    The 2nd minigame - Couples
    ----------------------------------
    This is a memory game. We will have to make 4 pairs per round, in a total of 4 rounds, leaving the "Joker" card to the end of each round.
    If we uncover before we lose all couples accumulated for that round and we will start again.

    Common Keys
    ------------------
    At any time you can press the buttons A, B, X and Y (skilled) or the arrow keys (left handed) to cancel or exit the current mini-game or menu in which we are.

    One of my favorite homebrews. When it's completed it'll beat out many standard DS puzzle games in quality.

    No offense but the control of the maze game is horrible... The physics feel of the ball would be great in another game, but for a maze type it just makes things annoying.

    But that's just me, and maybe I'm missing the point/objective of YOUR game.
    The rest is good, I played the slide puzzle and match game for a while (match game is rather easy/forgiving).

    It's the dificult of the game, move the ball without hit the walls or lift the stylus (or at least with less times you can).
    You read in the "readme" file how to play it?
    This game it's planed to be hard (simply cross the maze was too easy)
    With a little of practice i can croos it with out any hit or lifting the stylus.
    But i'm open to reports to adjust control it if people thinks it's too hard

    I'd really like to try this game out [​IMG] However, I can't seem to get it started up..When i click the file it just sits on the screen saying "NitroFS init. Please wait." along with the same message in spanish, i'm assuming. Any help is appreciated! :]

    Ooh, thanks. It's a really fun game [​IMG] However, the Couples minigame is a little too easy, maybe you could add different difficulty levels or something, with more 'couples' to match up or what not [​IMG]

    I'm always open to sugestions, but for couples games, the only way to make it more dificult was add more cards, this means make them more smalls, and this means loss a lot of quality on them...

    Mnh, I was thinking higher difficulty levels for the sliding puzzle, and also making the initial shuffling move faster.

    *loves that one*

    Good morning!

    I am pleased to announce that we have ready the BETA version of the 3rd minigame.
    In addition, we have updated some of the graphics of the menus, finally added the game options menu, plus some improvements, such as automatic detection of language from the console at the first boot, or the inclusion of a screen that asks if we are right or left handed, also, on the game first boot. These options can be changed at any time from the options menu, as well we can delete all data from the mini-games to start again.

    You can download the game from the official page.

    The music is a nice touch. Sound effects next?

    One thing that's irks me is the ball sprite for the mazes has hard corners on the left and bottom, could that be fixed?
