- Must have Android 2.1 or later
BBC Worldwide has announced that hit Doctor Who mobile game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time, is now available on the Android platform. This is the first time BBC Worldwide has created a game for the Android market.
Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time pits the Doctor and his faithful companion Amy Pond against his most formidable enemies including the Cybermen, Daleks and Silurians. Players must use both characters to find their way out of devilish mazes without falling foul of the various traps and monsters that await them
Originally released on Apple’s App Store in December 2010, the game boasts a four-star customer rating and has also been chosen as The Independent’s App of the Week in the UK. However, the Android version seems to be having teething problems and only has a 2.5-star rating due to download issues.
The initial set of levels is free, with further downloadable content packs available to purchase. Each pack will unlock a new set of levels, with new monsters and challenges to beat.
Robert Nashak, EVP at Digital Entertainment, BBC Worldwide said “We’re delighted to be able to offer Android users the chance to play Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time. Android users make up an increasing percentage of the mobile market and we’re thrilled that they’ll now be able to find their way out of our mazes.”
