DescriptionMaze Wars is a strange cross between Wolfenstein 3D and Pacman. You navigate around a 3D maze, shooting and running from enemies that are represented by wireframe pyramids. Once all enemies are dead you can exit the maze and move on to the next one. If you run out of ammo you lose. If you bump into an enemy you lose. If you run out time you also lose.
There are 11 progressively harder mazes to play through. The game also allows you to modify color of the walls and enemies, depending on your preference.

TriviaMaze Wars actually shares its name with another game with a similar theme...made almost 20 years earlier. The original Maze Wars was designed on the primitive Imlacs PDS-1 at the NASA Ames Research Center in California in 1973-1974. If you want to read more about it go here. Not only was it 3D, it supported multiplayer no less.
I don't think the Maze Wars documented here was intended to be a remake of the original Maze Wars, and the names were simply a coincidence. Still, it's interesting that the FPS genre existed 20 years before Wolfenstein 3D.
