MSX user chalky started this BASIC program in 1985 as a technical exercise and abandoned it for 35 years.
After re-development it turned into a simple maze game which is fun to play.
Most of the code being written in MSX BASIC and there are no monsters - all you have to do is escape each of the 32 levels in under 1000 moves.
Have fun and don't get lost!

Very impressive. And it plays smooth like butter at 7MHz, if you have the option.

I have escaped from the first level oO . I took 125 movements. It's a hard game but it's funny.

Is the map functional? I don't see anything.

Thanks for sharing the game.

You can see the map in the pause mode (enter pause by pressing "m", leave with ESC.

@hamlet - thanks for the screenshot. Smile

@Juan Luis - as per the warning on the HELP screen, viewing the map will invalidate your moves count, so only use it if you're really lost and don't mind having to start again to record your total... Wink
