It's like 3D Monster Maze, but in proper 3D! That's to say, it's a maze inside a cube and you have to find your way out. And there isn't a T-Rex pursuing you. And it's quite slow. But you can play it in fast mode…still quite slow! And you can have shaded walls…which make it a little slower. The navigation system is a little odd (directions are ABSOLUTE!) but doesn't take long to get used to. To be fair, this little oddity doesn't have a lot going for it, but in these attention-starved times it occupied me for 10 minutes that I'd otherwise only have spent fiddling with Angry Birds or something. It's slow, but it was written in Basic (except for a tiny bit of machine code). And it's early Jeff Minter with nothing at all weird about it.
