Light can take tens of thousands of years to get from the fusion core of a star to its surface. Can you do better? Steer the photon through the maze, collect letters, and build a phrase to help you escape. The game includes twenty seven different mazes corresponding to stars ranging from red dwarfs to blue supergiants!
For teachers: Star Maze can be used as an educational game to supplement classroom discussions on the sun, stars, and astronomy. The hint phrases borrow from both the Benchmarks For Science Literacy and NASA's Heliophysics Concept Map. Development was supported through grants by the National Science Foundation.
Added extra help.
Ratings and Reviews
Science and fun all in one
I was pleasantly surprised by science wrapped up in a challenging maze game. You'll discover how stars work as you progress through more challenging levels of mazes, following the bread crumbs of stellar stories left behind in the maze. I solved a number of the easier mazes without considering the story line, but if you want to conquer the entire series you'll need to pay attention to the star's stories as you go. Top-notch and lots of fun.
