Acornsoft Maze

Post by theleachio » Wed Apr 21, 2010 9:53 pm

Anyone any ideas how many different levels there are? I think I have got as far as 7 robots but it doesn't seem to increase beyond this.

Is there a technique to picking up the security tags? I tried standing on them and pressing 'T' but nothing happens. Do you have to stand on them or be looking at them?

Stand in front of them, looking at them. Then press T.

Which disc-image are you using?

Are there any other maze games worthy of note? I played a number of other maze games but they wern't as polished as the acronsoft version.

Don't know, but here's a list of hopefully all the 3D maze games on bbcmicro.co.uk:

The Acornsoft version seems by far the best of the ones available for the BBC. I solved my original problems with the security tags.

Of the various I've encountered over the decades for the BBC, I'd agree that the Acornsoft version - incidentally one of the first games I played on the Beeb or indeed any computer - is my far the best. It handles well and looks reasonable... and those echoing approaching footsteps of the villains down corridors used to give a fright when I was young!
...Should have put more thought into thinking of a clever user name!!
