Dedale

MeaghanWhat springs to mind when someone says the word "maze"? Probably not an image of a butterfly dancing along a series of colored tiles to the sound of piano keys. Sergey Mohov, on the other hand, envisioned exactly that, turning the butterfly and piano vision into a gorgeously styled maze puzzle game by the name of Dédale. With music provided by Fractures, it is up to you to brave 100 levels of tile coloring, butterfly leading, maze escaping fun.

DedaleYou'll only need your brain and a mouse for this game (or your brain and a few fingers for the mobile version). Simply left click on the starting tile and drag across the spaces where you want the butterfly to move, changing each square's color as you pass. Every tile needs to be crossed to complete a level, and in early stages you can't backtrack, so plan ahead! Later on, you'll encounter new tiles that require alternate strategies to deal with, such as large tiles or tiles that need to be passed over twice.

Dédale is the perfect type of game to play at any time of day, but most especially when you're feeling like you need a respite from the chaos of the world and want a piece of calm to settle into. The endearing butterfly and the soothing piano notes will certainly help lull anyone into a sense of ease and security. There is no dying, there is no time limit to constrain your thought process; there is nothing but the joy of using your noggin' to move on to the next challenge. So turn off your phone (unless that's where you're playing the game), maybe close the curtains, and grab a cup of something warm and soothing because the world can wait while you and the butterfly traverse the enchanting music painted maze that Mohov has created.

Am I the only one who has no sound on the iOS version?

Never mind, the switch on the side of my iPad was set to silent.
