Binary Maze


The Project:

Binary Maze is a top down 2D puzzle arcade where you have to play as a loving couple: R-boy and L-girl.

Binary Maze is inspired by the great NES classic arcade Binary Land. Some Sokoban elements have been mixed in it. New items and enemies have been added. And strong bosses too.

By controlling both characters you make your way through a maze full of different enemies and puzzles, collect all diamonds and avoid falling into traps, open locked doors and blast preventing walls, meet with your better half and defeat the evil boss together.

Binary Maze features:

-Control two characters at the same time
-45 unique levels in three different locations: the garden, the house and the dungeon
-Dark levels with only small spots of light visible
-3 types of enemies with different behavior models. Bo, Ro and Zo are their names.
-Cobweb-traps, spiked spheres and pits
-Ability to move boxes and blast walls
-Puzzles with doors and buttons
-Two game modes: Normal and Arcade (with limited lives and levels going one by one)

Platforms: Windows and Mac

Framework: Torque 2D

Release date: Summer 2013.

The Team:

My name is Max Marozaw. I am a 24 years old indie developer from Minsk, Belarus. I’ve worked as a developer for the last 4 years, and about 1.5 year ago I have started slowly developing my own game in my free time. From February 2013 I decided to leave my job and concentrate on my personal project: Binary Maze.

Now I am working hard for the success of this game. I am making all programming and the music by myself. Thanks a lot to my wife Veronika; she greatly supports me. And from February on, I shall be working in cooperation with a great artist who can realize my ideas into pixels.
