90's Maze game, tan and red ASCII graphics [Mission Maze]

Post by PyRoFReaC »

I remember playing this maze game in the early 90's in DOS. I can't remember if there were enemies or if I'm confusing that part with Beast, but I do remember it was a separate game from Beast. The ASCII art was done using these characters:

The game was either a little buggy or I just didn't know exactly how to play.
The object seemed to be to create tunnels and find things but I can't remember winning or losing.
The other games on the machine were Beast, Hurkle, and Nyet; hopefully that helps give some context.

Thanks!

Could even be Rogue. When you walk between rooms, it looks like you're making tunnels.

i think i know what game you are talking about.

Mission Maze (DOS)

The maze is tan/red (level 1)
You are required to make tunnels
Your mission is to find objects
It uses those ASCII symbols

Hope this helps

Cool, I've never seen that one before. By William Soleau of Soleau Software. I can't find a good safe information link, but google has several more sketcy links if you feel like taking a look: https://www.google.com/search?q="Mission+Maze"+soleau

Mission Maze is discontinued by Soleau Software, but it is possible to find in online archives.

The game has a slightly different name at mobygames:

(The link for the shareware version given at mobygames page has changed a little.)

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your replies! It very well could have been Mission Maze, although it didn't ring any nostalgia bells when I tried it.
