We are in the center of a maze, we will have to move around it by means of the four cursor keys, vertically or horizontally. You have to try to collect all the leads in the maze (10 points).

When all the keys are collected, the game will end the level and we will move on to the next one, which is completely new.

There are two things that are very unusual within the magical labyrinth. First of all, as we move, the labyrinth will change as we go, this can be an advantage or a disadvantage.

Second, from any given position we will only be able to move in a direction that has a key or path that actually changes the current position either vertically or horizontally.

As a result it is much more difficult to see in advance what exits are possible from a given position before we move there.

In fact, it is quite possible to completely abandon a path that changes behind us.

At any time during the game, we can press EXIT to choose a new game or leave it permanently.
