This third classic is a 3D maze game in which you have a perspective view of the paths open to you.
The object of the game is to find your way around the maze quickly. If you do it fast enough then you will catch the maniac. If you arc too slow then he will catch you!
On screen are shown the passages that arc open to you. The arrow at the bottom indicates the true direction that you are facing and how far you have travelled towards the exit at bottom right.
The left or right cursor changes the direction you are facing. The up cursor takes one step into the picture each time it is pressed. The down cursor takes you back one step and leaves you facing the same direction. The joystick can also be used to move.
Once you are successful in reaching the end of the maze then the target time is reduced and the best time must be beaten.
This game uses a sophisticated technique, based upon the Amstrad's colour pointers, to achieve the very fast changes to the picture. The technique is worthy of your close examination since you can use it to produce high speed movement in your own programs.
If the program is merged with the‘High Score' routine then many players may race against each other's best time.
