Escape from Markana is a single-player "escape the maze"-type game. The player takes the role of a hero who has been taken prisoner by the nation of Markana. After a long and intensive interrogation the Markana leave you alone in their maze. They are so certain that their obstacle, trap and puzzle laden maze is impenetrable that they leave no guards around so all the player has to do is escape. Further evidence of their pride in the security of their maze is the fact that they also use it to store treasure and the odd gun. Points are scored for each object collected.

The game is divided into sections. Program Markana1 includes levels 1, 2, and 3 while program Markana2 includes levels 4, 5, and 6 and so on. On loading the game it attempts to adjust to the speed of the host computer. This test takes between one and ten minutes but, according to the game's documentation, can take up to twenty minutes.

There is an on-screen manual which describes the game in detail, this accessed by a separate program. The game has one save slot. The shareware version has six levels. The full registered version has 12 levels and over 1000 screens.
