Labyrinth Touch is an accelerometer-based game where you physically tilt the phone to guide a ball through mazes. This is a much larger version of the freeware game Labyrinth Lite, with the same gameplay but a lot more mazes to complete.
How To Get It:
You can download Labyrinth Touch from Ovi Store by selecting your phone's Ovi Store icon, or by going to store.ovi.mobi on your phone's web browser.
Alternatively you can go to store.ovi.com on your computer's browser.
If you can't see the game displayed on Ovi Store, it probably isn't compatible with your phone model.

Ovi Gaming Review:
Phone Used For Review - Nokia N97 (games may be different on different phone models)
Gameplay - This game uses your phone's accelerometer (tilt sensor). You physically tilt the phone to move the ball through a maze without falling through the holes between you and the goal. Different types of ball have different physical properties, and there are 27 different mazes to choose from. The games are also timed, so even if you beat a maze you can try to reduce your time taken.
Graphics - Simple but effective, the ball moves realistically and the physics of the different ball types works well too. This combined with the accelerometer interface makes the game look very realistic indeed.
Sound - None.
Multiplayer & Online - None.
Overall - This is a simple way of using the accelerometer but the simplest ideas are often the best. The variety of mazes and low price (3 euros at time of writing) make this a good value game which is easy to play and great fun. This is also a great way of showing off accelerometer-equipped phones to friends. :-)
Score - 80%
