Four humans have been put to test by the Gods of the Ancient Greece, they shall face the minotaurs in the labyrinth. To survive, the must show their wisdom and solve the traps inside the labyrinth, all while avoiding the minotaurs. Their goal is to reach the last room, where the exit will be shown and they can finally be free.

Inspired by the classic MS-DOS game “The Beast”, we have created a game with new graphics and game modes. Playing The Minotaur you will feel the nostalgia for those old school games where your only goal was to get as far as possible or the highest score. The game also has full gamepad compatibility, so do not worry if you don’t like playing on keyboard ;)

The Minotaur also includes several game modes:

It’s the classic mode, where the player has to fight his way through 30 levels with increasing difficulty, including different minotaurs, minotaur eggs, etc.

Time Attack:
Similar to Arcade, the player needs to finish the level all 30 levels in a certain amount of time. Killing the minotaurs or their eggs will grant extra time.

If you think you beat the game, try this mode with the endless levels. Really, this mode never end!

One Life
You are the untouchable human? Demonstrate that with this mode where you die by one hit.

Local Co-op:
If you have trouble defeating the beasts, ask a friend for help! Or a family member, or maybe even your dog can help you. Up to four players, so the more the merrier.

Local VS
This game mode allows the players to fight against themselves. Great for challenging your friends and competing to be the very best, or simply relax by killing your acquaintances.

Players will need to find their ways through a series of hand-made levels. Some of them might even have only four blocks to kill the minotaurs (ง︡'-'︠)ง.

Level Editor:
Tired of playing the classic levels? Bored by the challenges? No problem, you will be able to create your own level maps.

The Minotaur reviews and comments

Waaagh! I was not lucky enough to bypass this game side. I bought it on the day of release. I haven't followed her, No. Just to crush the Mimimishnyh evil minotaur-it's awesome, I thought... Yes, pushing them is awesome. It's just a hell of a quick bore. I tried to dilute this boredom with various modes, which I slipped here, but they quickly bored. I looked in the boards of Honor. I downloaded the level from the workshop, funny, you know. I knocked out the cards and deleted. This game is not for me, but it is definitely replete with opportunities. That's Why I recommend it to you.

Product received for free Non-Canonical mythology Most of us (if not all) know the myth of Theseus and Ariadne. About how a brave lad with the help of a guiding thread went through the maze, killing the minotaur and freeing the prisoners there. Here neither about any thread of speech goes, and the role of a sword now execute... Blocks. Move the blocks, lure the minotauris into traps or crush these blocks. Any whim. + simple, but traced graphics + simple, but requires some skills gameplay + several game modes, including co-op + conventional Minotaur, rabid minotaur and even... Mintavrov eggs + Level Builder-the impression is that the system of points is attached for a tick, as a tribute to the classic games. Because in no multiplayer tables your score is not displayed. It Only you see-despite the presence of several modes of the game is played everywhere the same, because the gameplay itself remains the same Game does not throw the player any calls and suits rather cashualam than hardcore.

I Have made an analysis of this game here: http://www.devuego.es/blog/2016/09/11/the-minotaur-prometedor-inicio-steam-ratalaika-games/The idea of the game has a lot of potential. Despite being based on simple controls, the mechanics are complex because we will have to combine skill and strategy to defeat the enemies. It Is very addictive, perhaps at first glance can take a little back to the player, but in two minutes You will be playing without being able to stop. The problem is that it is lacking content, missing enemies, missing scenarios, lack of powers, missing extras... And, therefore, soon after playing, when you have completed the arcade and the challenges, the game ends up tiring. It has lacked content, considering that Steam is full of puzzle games, many with a variety of levels... It's hard to get attention. Even If Their gameplay is so good, they have been lacking to exploit it more. However, for the price at which we can find it (1.99 or perhaps cheaper even on sales) I would give it a try. I could not stop until completing it and I have even shared some maps in the community. There Are Few, but some very interesting ones.
