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.
