Description

As a fly trapped in a maze, you run through the passageways, picking up the numbers that answer the math problems posed at the bottom of the screen. This game leads to some very fast action, especially with the spider, who will chase you down and kill you. This game allows for the players to design their own maze.

Trivia

When you pass the current maze, a congratulation screen apears. In this screen, either the fly or the spider zips back and forth. While this happens, the backround color quickly cycles through all 16 colors, but because the game puts a white backround on the screen, it looks as if the black and magenta fly or the black and cyan spider is flashing very colorfully. A nice CGA trick, kind of like the blue backround in the King's Quest series.

This game allowed for the players to design their own mazes, which lead, personally, to many hours of fun!
