Beat in 173 seconds. The adaptive soundtrack is a nice touch, but I think it would have worked better had it not looped quite so often, and the aesthetic is neat, but does start to strain the eyes quite quickly.

Opening Comments:

Looks pretty! I finished with 212.3 (seconds I assume) once I set my movement speed to max

Theme: 3/5

I see the maze idea was a common go to for people with this theme! I didn't understand how it related to it, though.

Design: 3/5

I love the grid lines and the neon stuff, but it's all way way too much. I think the neon would have worked better had it been one line along the edges of the floor or something. It hurt my eyes to play for too long.

Audio: 3.5/5

Cool music track for the game. I didn't play long enough to see if there was any variation.

Gameplay: 3/5

I was given no instructions at the beginning of the game, so I wasn't sure what the gameplay was beyond navigating a maze.

It looks really intriguing. I would like to play it but it would have to have a Linux port.

A little more variation in the music would have been nice!
