- Fun mix of traditional arcade game elements.
- Additional skill-based bonuses via wall-grinding and unbroken flower-chains.
- Fun retro-inspired visuals with a modern colorful touch.
- Two-player mode can be awkward; relatively tiny screen space for controls and easy to get confused.
- Additional modes don't add to the experience.
Forget-Me-Not is certainly hard to forget, with a unique combination of classic and modern elements that make it a blast to master.

Some may remember Nyarlu Labs for their somewhat bizarre, but incredibly fun and unique title Magnetic Shaving Derby. I'll give you a moment to let all of the memories to flood back as you remember a disheveled pixel-art face and other various random objects. All good? Forget-Me-Not is the latest from the developer and while the game may look a lot less bizarre, the combination of Pac Man and Rogue-like elements makes for an experience that's hard to put down.
Players must control their square block by swiping the screen to change directions, navigating down maze-like corridors while avoiding enemies in order to collect all of the flowers. However there's a twist, or two, or three. Firstly you will have to contend with your constantly firing weapon which, when fired down a corridor that leads off-screen, can hit you and damage you. This can be negated by a key that you can drag behind you, however enemies can steal the key and subsequently use it as a shield as well; nastier varieties can even shoot back, so be ready to dodge. Lastly, you can 'grind' against the maze in order to build up a charge, boosting your weapon's power temporarily, however if you charge too much you'll blow up, taking out a chunk of the maze in the process.
Three modes are currently available, though this is a bit misleading as they're only minor variations on the basic mode that pits you against increasingly challenging mazes while giving you a limited amount of lives. Survival mode reduces your lives to one, while Shuffle randomizes the order of the levels. For a truly different experience you'll need to play with a friend, sharing the screen in a two-player mode (just try not to kill your friend in the process... though where's the fun in that eh? >:D).
Ultimately, Forget-Me-Not successfully manages to recapture the fun of an old classic while mixing in features that give it more depth. This makes it a fun diversion and a great pickup for those who enjoy something out of the ordinary.
DescriptionForget-Me-Not is a tiny little arcade game for one or two players. Mazes + monsters + shooting.
Run around the infinite, ever changing corridors of the NEON DUNJUN, gathering flowers and shooting everything. ZAP!
Grab the key to the next floor.. try not to let monsters take it off you. Once you've picked all the flowers, the doorway shall appear...
Grind the walls for a speed boost and the power of squishing!
Two player device sharing mode. Take a friend along to help and/or hinder you.
.oO( Standard ) - Start from the start, travel as far in as you can.
.oO( Shuffle ) - Oh no! Space/time has gone higgledy-piggledy. Play through levels in random order.
.oO( Survival ) - Same as standard but you only get one life. Make it count.
.oO( Seed ) - Everyone in the world gets the same set of levels, which changes once a day. Replay the day's levels as many times as you want to compete for highscores.
.oO( Arena ) - Trapped! There's just one big level. There's no door. Enemies keep appearing, flowers keep being replenished, the walls keep being blasted away. Oh, and you only get one life.
* Original - Like Forget-Me-Not 1.0.
* Arcade - Harder! Faster! Scarier!
Procedurally generated, screen-wrapping, destructible mazes. Tiny little pixelly graphics and zappy retro sound effects.
What's New in Version 2.0Lots of tweaks to make things more balanced.
A couple new monsters and variations on the old ones.
New game modes - Seed and Arena.
Difficulty setting - Original or Arcade. Arcade is harder and faster, with more stuff.
New leaderboards. The v1.0 leaderboards are now locked - your old scores are preserved in glory forever!
*** NOTE! Apparently this update crashes on iOS 3.1.3, so if you're running that, hold off on updating. Sorry about that...working on a fix.
