Labyrinth is based on the children’s game of the same name that consists of a big wooden box and a little metal ball, with the top of the box being a maze that you navigate the ball through. In the original, you twist two dials, positioned on two sides of the box, which tilt the top level of the box, where the ball sits. The idea is to carefully tilt the maze to roll the ball through it, dodging holes that take the ball back to the beginning and moving around wooden walls along the way.

The app adopts that original premise, using your smartphone’s internal gyroscope technology to recreate the original’s tilt controls. It’s simply packed with levels — more than 1,000. There’s a reason there are so many: You can download a client on your computer that allows you to create levels of your own and add them to the Labyrinth community. And all those levels are available for every player to download at any time, keeping the game fresh pretty much forever. If there’s a drawback, it’s that some of these levels are really tough — some are even kind of sadistic. Be prepared for a lot of fun, and maybe a little frustration, too.
