Mr. Mazer is a simple Java-based applet desgined by Tod Semple for the Java International Cup 1996 tournament.
The object the game is to get the purple ball in to the green square exit using the arrow keys. For every level you pass, you will get points based on how much time you had left at the end with more points granted each level. The maze gets bigger and mroe complex as you advance levels with a small amount of extra time to solve the puzzle. If you cannot get the purple ball into the exit before time is up, your game is over.
Mr. Mazer might seem to be easy, but as the levels increase, you will begin to panic. Thus, the author, Tod Semple, has created The Mr. Mazer Master Challenge!
"The first few levels are very easy and you'll be thinking, 'I can play this game with my nose pressing the keys.' But, by level 5, you'll start leaning towards the moniter . . . by level 8 you'll be reaching for your glasses because the maze is getting so complicated . . . by level 13 you'll be sweating bullets . . . and at level 15 the maze walls get so close that they have to be thinned not to overlap! But, don't fret, you will never ever get much farther than that . . .
" I once saw somebody make it to level 28 with 2.2 million points. It was quite an amazing game. I challenge anyone to beat that score . . ."
The Challenge is on. If you can beat 2.2 million, or get past level 28, mail Tod!
If you wish, you can check out the code. It was developed with JDK 1.0.1 and works well in Windows 95. Have fun trying to get it to run on any other operating system... We have not been successful yet.
