Amazed, a mobile Windows Phone game in every sense of the word

49

Amazed is a Windows Phone game for those who like a little action in their games - action in the literal sense of the word.

Amazed is a virtual maze that requires you to physically walk your way out of it. The game uses your Windows Phone GPS to plot your location in the maze and you walk around as needed to escape the maze and avoid various pitfalls. As you would guess, this isn't a game to be played from the couch or the living room for that matter. You'll need a large space to accommodate all the twists and turns the maze will present. There is a time element involved so don't be surprised if you work up a sweat while escaping the maze.

While not available for low-memory Windows Phones, Amazed has the potential to be an entertaining fitness game for your Windows Phone. The game reminds me of Zombies Run! but without story line. I like the concept but there is a few performance issues present that need to be ironed out to let the game shine brighter.

Microsoft is so far taking a slow approach to the roll-out of the Windows Phone 8.1 update with the Lumia Cyan firmware. Yesterday, we detailed what is new in Lumia Cyan, and we have already reviewed Windows Phone 8.1.

Currently, there are no publicly set timetables for the release, as it is dependent on the device manufacturer, model, region and carrier, if applicable.
