A maze is randomly constructed in front of you, through which you must navigate to the top of the screen. You have the ability to topple walls that are in your way by touching them. However, this will cost you points. The goal is to find the path to the end with the least number of walls in the way.

Any suggestions on how to improve the scoring system would be appreciated, as it is almost impossible to get a perfect score.

My biggest problem with this game is the final score/possible points tally at the end of the game. The game doesn't really end until you hit Esc. This brings up a screen that displays your final score and the number of possible points, which is the number of mazes completed times 200. Problem is, since you'll usually have to break at least one or two walls to get out of the maze (and thus lose points) that system doesn't really work. Any better ideas for the scoring?

Ah, Random Maze. Such a nice, quiet, simple game. Press "F" during the game for an extra special message :)

Hmmm, right clicking seems to work for me. Guess it might be a bandwidth issue. If nothing else, copying and pasting link to the URL should work.

Guess I'm on my own about the scoring problem then...
