The Irritating Maze Arcade Title screen

The prequel to Irritating Stick features all-new sticks, all-new mazes, and all-new irritants. Based on a Japanese game show format, the player controls a conductive metal rod passing through a maze with electrified sides. The player's character gets a bad zap if the stick hits the side, then has to start over again from the last checkpoint. The goal is to pass through all of the mazes and their strange and over the top traps to reach the goal. The trackball controller puts a unique spin on the controls, challenging the player to keep the stick moving safely.
