MazeMaze is another delightfully simple and accessible casual Web game by GameDesign of Japan.

The object of this action puzzle game is to find the exit to each increasingly larger maze level within the time limit. However, before you can get out of a maze, you will first need a key for the exit door.

Keys and other special items are hidden about the maze to help you along the way. Hammers are useful to break down walls; clocks add ten (10) seconds to the timer; maps show you the entire maze at once including the locations of all items present; and keys open exit doors. Each item is single use, which means that once you use it you lose it.

Control in the game is with the keyboard. For movement up, down, left and right, use the arrow keys. To begin a game, click on the game with the mouse and press the [Enter] key. To use a hammer on a wall, face the wall you wish to break and press the [Enter] key.

The game is challenging since only a small portion of the entire maze is visible at once. Other than when viewing the map, you can only see what is close by. Finding the map can be especially helpful, but only for the moment you spend viewing it. The timer becomes the real problem as the size of each randomly generated maze grows larger. Finding an exit becomes difficult enough, but then you must also have a key in order to get free.

Not a deep game, though it's quite enjoyable and a perfect diversion for an afternoon lunch or coffee break.

A fun simple game here, always the cool kind for a quick fix. Too bad there isn't any music, though I do like that if you find multiple keys per level you can carry them on with you ;)

I felt fairly confident after vanquishing the puny level 1. Level 2, too, also fell under my awesome maze might. Level 3 pushed me, but I eventually triumphed.

Then came Level 4. I stumbled round blindly for a minute or so. Then finally, I found the precious guider, the MAP. I touched it.

And I knew terror.

Because the hammers carry over to next maze it is good idea to get all the hammers in easier levels and use them later in harder levels.

So does anybody know how many levels there are? The maze generator seems to follow the pattern of a small map then three medium maps then a big map
After getting to level 41, I simply quit. But I will always have that nagging feeling that just one more level would have been the end

Level 4 was easy :)
Level 8... a little harder -_-
But... it's a maze generator. Why would it have an ending?
Level 12, no end in sight.
(A high score table indicates 220+ levels. 50 is a saner top end)

I find it difficult to belive that anybody could get above level 25, unless it's stops increasing by such a large amount.
