MAGIC MAZE KIDS
The king was accidentally turned into a frog! Gather your friends, stride across the forest, and find the correct ingredients to prepare a potion that will cure him in Magic Maze Kids!
Magic Maze Kids is a cooperative game that makes the original mechanisms of Magic Maze accessible to young players. Everyone controls all of the heroes, but only in one direction! Tutorials gradually teach you the rules, and several levels make the game evolve with the children.
The limited movement mechanic is used in a new way, with the addition of animals dotted around the board that must be shifted out of the way for characters to get past. The creatures are limited to a specific area of colour-coded squares but can otherwise be moved like the characters. On a map with two bridges, there’s also a troll who can be shifted between the bridges with the right direction.
The rules have been simplified from the full game, but the four characters still have unique powers – the prince can jump over an animal, the witch can take forest shortcuts, the wizard can make use of portals and the princess can travel along rivers. Magic Maze Kids is shaping up to be a friendlier take on an already fantastic game!
