While the narrative, gameplay, visuals and controls are relatively average, the game does have official licensing (obviously) which means a whole lot of amazing orchestral tracks and dialogue that feels true to the current series - just don't expect to hear the dialogue as this is oddly missing despite audio tracks for the Doctor's many enemies. Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time is a hard game to recommend to anyone not already invested in the TV series as it's hard to remain entertained between the story points; only worth picking up if you're a die-hard Who fan.
I confess, I really wanted this app to be great, but history has shown time and time again that licensed games tend to be pretty disappointing, and Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time is no exception. While it’s far from a total failure, it just doesn’t really satisfy.
If this were just another anonymous game on the App Store then it's likely no one would really pay it much heed or care about its unimpressive nature. But this is a title based on a massively popular television series which has a large base of very devoted fans. You would expect something more from an app like this, but it fails to deliver on every count. The nicest thing I can say about Dr. Who: The Mazes of Time is that it's a game; beyond that I have no more kind words.
A timid and tame adventure, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time is neither a pulsating puzzle or a fitting tribute to the franchise that adorns its title.
I am not sure if anyone outside the existing fanbase will find any reason to play past the first couple of levels of Mazes of Time. If you haven’t dreamt about Daleks, and tried to sound like one you will probably not want to play just to meet them. For the fan there is not that much to find either. All you get is a slow block moving puzzler with the likeness of the Doctor, Amy, Tardis and some Daleks. I advise to wait for price drops if you have managed to hold out so far.
